Shri A K Gulati, Director (MS), Scientific Analysis Group (SAG), Delhi, graduated in Aeronautical Engineering from Punjab Engineering College, Chandigarh, in 1967 and joined DRDO in 1968. He

has worked on various Aero-engine
Research and Development projects and
programmes at GTRE, Bangalore during 1968-81.

At Directorate of Aeronautics, R&D HQrs, he made significant contributions in area of Military Airworthiness and Certification. A concept for concurrent certification of material for Kaveri engine was introduced. The setting up of overall facilities of M53P2 engine for Mirage-2000 has been steered under his leadership. Indigenisation of components for Russian fleet and POL items were also initiated. Number of projects under ARDB were initiated during his stay at this DIRECTORate acquiring three patents and numbers of innovative processes for material and propulsion system. At Directorate of Personnel, R&D HQrs, he has made contributions in career planning and growth of DRDO scientists.

At SAG, he successfully planned roadmap for induction specialised manpower required for crypt analysis projects. He evolved training and job enrichment programmes for scientists and other employees on advanced techniques in mathematics related to crypt analysis and intercept and communication systems, network security, software development. Shri Gulati is a Fellow of Aeronautical Society of India. He has 35 technical papers to his credit.
