DRDO Igniter Complex was inaugurated at High Energy Materials Research Laboratory, Pune

A Defence Research Development Organization (DRDO) Igniter Complex was inaugurated at High Energy Materials Research Laboratory (HEMRL), Pune. The primary purpose of the laboratory is to design, process, evaluate ignition systems for any DRDO projects.

Key Points:

  • The new complex is equipped with sieve shaker, granulating machine, planetary mixer, pelleting machine, etc.
  • A design, modelling, simulation laboratory is a part of the complex.
  • The complex also has an assembly centre and a testing centre.
  • In December 2015, a high-level committee that investigated a fire accident at the igniter complex had suggested this new complex. The committee found that there are grave risks to humans in making and designing of ignition systems and recommended the advanced and remote-controlled facility.

HEMRL:

It develops rocket, pyrotechnic devices, gun propellants, high-explosive systems. Ignition is a crucial phenomenon in all these systems. HEMRL had developed ignition system for Prithvi, Agni, Nag, Akash, Pinaka, etc. It has also transferred the technology to Ordnance Factory, Pune.
