G.S. Reddy, new Sci­en­tific Ad­vi­sor to Rak­sha Mantri


Dr G. Satheesh Reddy is one of the renowned ex­perts in nav­i­ga­tion and avionics tech­nolo­gies. He joined DRDO in 1986 and led the con­cep­tu­al­i­sa­tion, de­sign, de­vel­op­ment and pro­duc­tion­i­sa­tion of in­er­tial sen­sors, nav­i­ga­tion schemes, al­go­rithms & sys­tems, cal­i­bra­tion method­olo­gies, sen­sor mod­els, sim­u­la­tion along with de­vel­op­ment of satel­lite nav­i­ga­tion re­ceivers and hy­brid nav­i­ga­tion sys­tems. Un­der his lead­er­ship, ad­vanced prod­ucts and va­ri­eties of avionics sys­tems have been pro­duced and suc­cess­fully flight tested in strate­gic pro­grammes of the coun­try. As Pro­ject Di­rec­tor, Dr Reddy led the de­sign and de­vel­op­ment of ring laser gyro-based INS sys­tem, MEMS-based INS sys­tem, sea-guard ref­er­ence sys­tem and ship nav­i­ga­tion sys­tem strength­en­ing the coun­try’s self-re­liance in high ac­cu­racy and long-range nav­i­ga­tion and also suc­cess­fully de­vel­oped a 1,000-kg class guided bomb.

As Di­rec­tor RCI, he led the de­vel­op­ment of avionics tech­nolo­gies in crit­i­cal ar­eas of in­er­tial sys­tems, em­bed­ded com­put­ers, con­trol, real time soft­ware and sim­u­la­tion, power sup­plies, RPF, seek­ers, an­ten­nae, flight in­stru­men­ta­tion for var­i­ous de­fence pro­grammes – Agni A1, A2, A3, A4, A5, Prithvi, Dhanush, As­tra, Akash, un­der­wa­ter mis­siles, BrahMos, Nirb­hay, Helina, Nag, MRSAM, Pro­gramme AD – PDV in­ter­cep­tor, two-stage ship launched tar­get, AAD and other de­fence pro­grammes. Dr Reddy spear­headed a num­ber of tech­nol­ogy de­vel­op­ment, mis­sion mode, S&T projects de­liv­er­ing va­ri­ety of sys­tems to mul­ti­ple projects in dif­fer­ent ca­pac­i­ties. He led the de­vel­op­ment and pro­duc­tion of GPS+GLONASS+GA­GAN on Mod­ule (G3OM) re­ceiver and Sys­tem on Chip (SoC) bring­ing in quan­tum jump in minia­tur­i­sa­tion of on­board avionics. He also led the de­vel­op­ment of IIR Seeker for anti-tank and long range BMD ap­pli­ca­tions and played a cru­cial role in de­vel­op­ment of high ac­cu­racy ac­celerom­e­ters for the long-range pre­ci­sion nav­i­ga­tion.

Dr Reddy grad­u­ated in Elec­tron­ics and Com­mu­ni­ca­tion En­gi­neer­ing from JNTU, Anan­ta­pur, and re­ceived his MS and Doc­tor­ate from JNTU, Hy­der­abad. He is a Fel­low of var­i­ous Academies and In­sti­tutes like the In­dian Na­tional Academy of En­gi­neer­ing, Royal In­sti­tute of Nav­i­ga­tion, Lon­don, Royal Aero­nau­ti­cal So­ci­ety, Lon­don and a Se­nior Mem­ber of many other pro­fes­sional/sci­en­tific bod­ies in the coun­try and abroad. He has been awarded Full Mem­ber Diploma and in­ducted as a For­eign Mem­ber of the Academy of Nav­i­ga­tion & Mo­tion Con­trol, Rus­sia, and is an As­so­ciate Fel­low of Amer­i­can In­sti­tute of Aero­nau­tics & As­tro­nau­tics, USA (AFAIAA). In recog­ni­tion of his distin­guished con­tri­bu­tions, Com­puter So­ci­ety of In­dia con­ferred on him the Honorary Fel­low­ship (HFCSI). He is also an Honorary Mem­ber of ACDOS and a Na­tional Mem­ber of IFAC Aus­tria.

Dr Reddy is a re­cip­i­ent of sev­eral pres­ti­gious awards which in­cludes the In­dian Science Congress As­so­ci­a­tion Homi J. Bhabha Me­mo­rial Award, DRDO Young Sci­en­tist Award, Agni Award for Ex­cel­lence in Self-Re­liance, DRDO Sci­en­tist of the Year Award, etc. He is a Mem­ber of the Gov­ern­ing Coun­cil/Aca­demic Se­nate of re­puted aca­demic in­sti­tutes.
