About the Monograph

This monograph describes the best systems engineering practices during the development of any complex system in general and defence system in particular. The case studies are brought out of real systems developed successfully for the Armed Forces. It stresses on the holistic view of any system in its totality, lateral thinking by the stake holders with wider perspective for the successful system acquisition. It will enable the user, acquisition, development, inspection, manufacturing and field deploying agencies to exploit the past experience and be successful in highly demanding circumstances. The monograph can be useful to those young professionals dealing with the development and production of military systems.

About the Author

Shri Sengottaiyan Varadarajan holds BE(Hons) in Electronics and Communication from Madurai University and ME in Electrical Communication Engineering from the IISc, Bengaluru. He served nearly three and half decades as Radar Scientist at the Electronics and Radar Development Establishment (LRDE), Bengaluru. He played a key role towards the induction of the INDRA-II. He led the successful development of the man-portable Battlefield Surveillance Radar-Short Range (BFSR-SR). As Director of LRDE, several Radar systems such as the 3D Surveillance Radars (Rohini, Revathy, 3D TCR), Low Level Light Weight Radars (Bharani and Ashlesha), Electronically Scanned Phased Array Radars (Rajendra, Weapon Locating Radar/Swathi) have been successfully developed and delivered to the Armed Forces. He initiated Rotating Electronically Scanning Active Array Radars (Arudhra, Ashwini, AD TCR) with close interaction with the users.

He is recipient of several awards such as the DRDO Scientist of the Year, Technology Leadership award, Agni award for self reliance and IETE-IRSI (83) award. He served as advisor to M/s Bharat Electronics Ltd and is an adjunct faculty of the Defence Institute of Advanced Technology (DIAT), Pune.
