DRDO on 3rd Nov 2010 handed over an integrated life support system (ILSS) for fighter aircraft as a state of the art technology for the IAF’s LCA Tejas fighter aircraft project. ILSS enables a fighter pilot to venture to the limits of the aircraft capability in terms of flight altitudes and G-forces. This technology had hitherto been the hallmarks of the few highly advanced countries. Now Defence Bioengineering & Electro medical Laboratory (DEBEL) Bangalore, under DRDO in association with L&T as development cum production partner, has taken a lead in this technology that, to start with, will go into Tejas aircraft. The engineering model of ILSS prototype has been rolled out from DEBEL Bangalore by Dr W Selvamurthy, Distinguished Scientist and Chief Controller R&D (Life Sciences) of DRDO. The ILSS consisting of 12 Line Replacement Units (LRUs) has been handed over to Dr PS Subramanyam, Distinguished Scientist, Program Director-CA and ADA, for fitment and further trials.

ILSS essentially performs the tasks of protecting the pilots against the extremes of altitudes, severe G forces imposed during the aerial combats and also provide breathing 100% oxygen in the case of ejection from aircraft. The Onboard Oxygen Generation System (OBOGS) keeps the pilot’s oxygen status always to the sea level condition despite being at high altitudes. The OBOGS enables the aircraft to undertake long endurance task, free from the burdens of recharging the Oxygen gas. The Demand Oxygen Regulator (DOR) ensures that the breathing gas is delivered as per requirement at various altitudes and also during anti-G straining maneuvers (AGSM) that the pilot undertakes during combat operations. The anti-G valve (AGV) renders adequate G-suit inflation pressure to prevent G-induced loss of consciousness (G-LOC). There is a unique electronic control unit (ECU) that ensures proper OBOGS functioning with changing altitudes, monitoring the ILSS and also activates the back-up system in the case of any failure. The ILSS design caters to both single and dual pilot operations.

The important milestone could be achieved due to the untiring effort of the DEBEL scientists led by its Director, Dr VC Padaki with the guidance of Chief Executive of CEMILAC, Dr K Tamilmani and able support of the teams from ADA, HAL, RCMA(a/c), DGAQA, NFTC and IAM. The ILSS at a later date, can also be customized to the needs of other Indian aircraft capable of long duration flights like MiG-29, SU-30, Mirage-2000 etc.

PORTABLE TELEMEDICINE SYSTEM FOR INDIAN NAVY


                                                              Honourable PM Witnessing Telemedicine System on the ocassion of Navy day 04th December 2015 at Navy House

DEBEL has been cting demonstrations and trials of the indigenously developed "Portable Telemedicine System" with Indian Army and the Indian Navy since past five years. This system was developed by DEBEL specifically to meet the requirements of Defence Services and it has undergone customization and value additions, through feedback received from several trials, demonstrations and interactions with the Services.

SOCIETY FOR BIOMEDICAL TECHNOLOGY

In view of the special characteristics of DEBEL where products developed have both defence and civilian application the responsibility of driving the Society for Biomedical Technology (SBMT) has been entrusted to DEBEL. The SBMT was started in 1993 by Dr APJ Abdul Kalam, the then Scientific Advisor to Raksha Manthri with the primary objective of indigenizing biomedical products and devices and making them available to the common man at an affordable cost.

Currently, products such as Critical Care Ventilator (CCV), Laparoscopic Simulator, Dental Implants are commercially available in the country and are in clinical use. During the year, some of the ongoing projects have resulted in the development of products such as, Cochlear Implant, Improved laproscopic Surgical Tool, MEMS based Intra-cranial Pressure sensor (ICP Sensor) and Deep Brain Stimulator (DBS) which are now in the stage of clinical validation and trials.

The details of the Society, its mission and its various activities including contact details are available on the Website www.sbmtindia.org.
