The project was awarded to IROV Technologies Pvt Limited, Kochi. The development of the Ice Detection Sensor for Aircraft project aims to detect icing conditions in flight caused by supercooled water droplets that freeze on impact with the external surfaces of the aircraft and are used by the aircraft to engage the anti-icing mechanism. The project was awarded to Craftlogic Labs Pvt Ltd, Bengaluru. The development of the Radar Signal Processor with an Active Antenna Array Simulator project will enable the implementation of multiple target systems for testing and evaluating multiple short-range airborne weapon systems.

It is a basic building block for larger radar systems. The project has been approved by Data Pattern (India) Limited, Chennai. The development of the Indian Regional Navigation Satellite System-based Timing Acquisition and Dissemination System project has been approved by Accord Software and Systems Pvt Ltd, Bengaluru.

The project aims to enable indigenization of time data collection and dissemination system, use Indian Constellation for time data collection and develop customized and flexible time measurement system as per the coverage requirements. Development of graphene based smart and electronic textiles for multifunctional wearable applications. The project has been approved by Coimbatore based start-up Alohatech Private Limited.

It will develop processes for the production of conductive yarns and fabrics using graphene nanomaterials and conductive inks. The result will be advanced electronic textiles based on nanocomposite materials that leverage their inherent advantages in practical clothing applications. (ANI)
