“We are happy to be engaged with the Indian Air Force for collaboration in research and training,” said Prof Abhay Karandikar, Director of IIT Kanpur. The Chair of Excellence will promote teaching, research, and technology development in Aerospace Technologies, Aircraft Structural Integrity, Aircraft Health Monitoring, and other allied subjects in the fields of Aeronautics and Aviation, and we are hopeful that it will set new benchmarks in this space with ground-breaking research initiatives.” It will make it easier for IAF staff to establish training programs that will serve as forums for the sharing of information and unique ideas for developing new technologies. It will also award research grants to IIT-K Aerospace Engineering Ph.D. scholars researching in these fields. The Research Scholar Program (RSP) will create a framework for cooperative cooperation between two national-level organizations, with qualified serving officers from the IAF being eligible for direct admission to IIT-Ph.D., Kanpur’s M.Tech, and eMasters programs. Officers will get the option to conduct time-limited research at IIT-several Kanpur’s departments. It will facilitate the sharing of ideas and opinions, as well as independent study, in order to achieve the national goal.

The cooperation would develop a pool of think tanks among IAF personnel with strategic knowledge and intellectual skills. The experience and skill development of these officers would benefit the country in a variety of ways. Through engagement with IIT-K faculty members, it will be possible to demonstrate innovative technology interventions and raise knowledge among IAF officers about how to address their challenges.
