Unique Feat of 5 Indian Universities

Teams from five leading Indian universities recently presented design concepts supporting the disaster relief operations as part of the Lockheed Martin C-130J Super Hercules Roll-On/Roll-Off University Design Challenge.

Teams participating in the challenge are from the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Delhi, IIT Chennai, Delhi Technological University (DTU), University of Petroleum and Energy Studies (UPES), and Birla Institute of Technological Studies (BITS) Pilani-Goa Campus.

The design challenge was started in November 2014. The company provided research grants for each university team to work with local industry partners and mentors from the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) to develop design specifications for proposed modules that could be used on C-130J Super Hercules cargo aircraft manufactured by Lockheed Martin. The Indian Air Force (IAF) operates a fleet of five C-130J Super Hercules aircraft.

Lockheed Martin provided each team with engineering, technical and business development expertise.

Teams participating in the challenge are from the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Delhi, IIT Chennai, Delhi Technological University (DTU), University of Petroleum and Energy Studies (UPES), and Birla Institute of Technological Studies (BITS) Pilani-Goa Campus.

Indian Air Force C-130Js played an active role in recent disaster relief operations including the Uttarakhand floods and Nepal Earthquake.
