Naval Research Board (NRB)

Naval Research Board (NRB) of Defence Research and Development Organization (DRDO) was set up in September 1996 to strengthen and deepen the knowledge base related to the Naval Science & Technologies. The NRB has a flexible approach towards research, funding and project execution. The Board has instituted a Grants-in-Aid Scheme to nurture scientific talent to create research base in IITs, Universities, higher technological institutions, colleges and other research centers in the country

The scheme is coordinated through seven specialist panels:-

  • Materials (MAT)
  • Hydrodynamics (HYDRO)
  • Sonar and Signal Behavior (SSB)
  • Ocean Environment (OE)
  • Scientific Computing (SC)
  • Marine systems (MAR)
  • Hydro-Vibro- Acoustics (HVA)
