Aeronautics Research and Development Board (AR&DB) is national body for co-ordinating and funding of futuristic research/development programmes in Aeronautics. AR&DB was the consequence of the Subramaniam Committee report and was constituted by Government of India in 1971. The Board replaced the Aeronautical Research Council of CSIR and Aeronautical Research and Development Panel of DRDO.

Since its inception, the AR&DB has fostered research and development activities, through grants in aid schemes, in several academic institutions and research laboratories in the country. The need for developing R&D with appropriate content of basic and applied research to help aerospace industry to handle the problems of high technology has been the watchworld in all its activities.
