Now, ISROs bullet-proof vests

Posted on February 11, 2009 - Filed Under Body Armor |

The space agency will develop world class bullet-proof armours by the end of this year. The jackets will cost 1/8th to 1/10th of the cost of the imported ones.

“After the Mumbai terror strikes, there was talk about sub-standard bullet proof jackets. In ISRO, we have great facilities which could be used to develop body armours. So we thought why not,” T G K Murthy, director of Atmospheric Science Programme, ISRO told Deccan Herald.

Murthy was in the capital to attend a technical seminar on internal security.

The project will be a joint venture between the ISRO and the International Advanced Research Centre for Powder Metallurgy and New Materials of the Department of Science and Technology.

“It required no fresh investments as we already have the set-up. Silicon Carbide Technology was established for space optics three years ago. Bullet-proof jackets will come as a byproduct,” said Murthy.

Affordability

India currently imports jackets from three undisclosed countries, but all of them are booked till 2012. “It will not only meet the needs of the security personnel but also the public in general because they will be more affordable now,” he added.

A 20-member team is currently involved in the production. The proto-model of the jacket will be ready by the middle of this year.

“We will be able to produce 2,000 jackets per annum whereas the requirement is around 20,000. Private players might collaborate in the future,” added Murthy.

Also, ISRO is thinking ahead and planning a major role in tackling terror in the future as well.

It has plans to develop highly penetrating high-energy laser guns and micro wave-based guns.

The atmospheric science programme section is gearing up to deal with any kind of biological and chemical terror threats, too.
