CSIO starts incubation cell to help fund flow from industry

Chandigarh: With the government’s huge cut on research and development for scientific organizations, the Central Scientific Instruments Organization (CSIO) has started its incubation cell. This will allow academia- industrial partnership, and also help in generating funds. The cell – named ‘Audhyogik Sahyog Kendra’ – has been started as an incubation cell for the scientific instruments industry in Ambala and nearby areas. “In this cell, we will be able to offer solutions to industries looking for newer technology. Our scientists have been doing research and getting them published. But now is the need to translate it into products with the help of industries at the incubation centre,” said CSIO director Prof RK Sinha…

India to develop its first anti-tank mine

17 December 2015

CHANDIGARH: Instead of procuring from US or Israel, country’s defence forces will soon be self-reliant with the first indigenous off-route or anti-tank mines. These are improvised explosive devices (IEDs), which explode like a projectile while camouflaged and placed on a tripod stand.

The mine, unlike conventional mines, is not buried underground and needs no pressure when placed underneath a vehicle for activation. To be developed by the Terminal Ballistic Research Laboratory (TBRL), a Defence Research and Development Organization (DRDO) laboratory in Chandigarh, and the Central Scientific Instruments Organisation (CSIO), the mine is used in surfaces where underground burial is not possible. The project began six months ago and was reviewed by DRDO experts early this week. It is expected to be completed in another four years…

CSIO displays timing management system with near zero error margin

02 November 2012

CHANDIGARH: A laser-based timing management system for motor-sport events might actually prove to be a game changer in the times to come. It promises to reduce the error margin to almost nil.

Presented at the ongoing national symposium on instrumentation organised by the Central Scientific Instruments Organization (CSIO), the invention is significant for sports organizers as the system guarantees providing the first hundred percent accurate estimate of time. Moreover, the lap timing can be displayed in real time to the audience, thereby reducing the suspense that follows the event….
