Highlights

Recently DRDO launched a new laboratory Defence Geo Informatics Research Establishment. The new lab was established by merging existing labs – the Manali-based Snow and Avalanche Studies Establishment and the Delhi-based Defence Terrain Research Establishment. The new lab will focus on researching terrain and avalanches along the borders with China and Pakistan. The merger is a part of the DRDO’s aim to be more result-oriented.

Snow and Avalanche Studies Establishment

SASE was involved in the study of snow and avalanches.

Research Establishment had prepared avalanche atlas for more than three thousand on-road location in different parts of the country, especially in the terrains where the armed forces were deployed.

DRDO’s DTRL

The Defence Terrain Research Laboratory was established in 1954. The primary function of the DTRL was to evaluate the deadlines and assess mobility potential of inaccessible areas. DTRL developed reliable systems that predicted current characteristics various types of triangles based on modern techniques. Also the Defence Terrain Research Laboratory developed infrastructure with the latest techniques related & Research.

The mission of the DTRL was to create and update Terrain intelligence reports and thematic maps for the users.
