Abstract

The paper is an outcome of a major research project funded by the Aeronautics Research and Development Board (AR&DB), DRDO. The primary intent of this project is to create a web-based database of testing facilities in aerospace and to facilitate sophisticated searchable database on WWW platform. The output of the project report can be treated as a working catalogue to provide narrative information describing each facility, its testing capabilities, unique characteristics, location, organisation, key persons, etc. Usage of the database is divided into passive and active. It enables to identify specific data requirements needed to quantify the status of the country's technological maturation from which an assessment can be made for research, development and testing of future aerospace vehicles. It also helps in designing standard operating procedure for providing Aerospace Test facilities existing in DRDO labs to the private sector (including under ‘Make in India’ initiative) on payment basis.
