About Lab

Defence Materials and Stores Research and Development Establishment (DMSRDE) originated in 1929 as Inspectorate of General Stores in the Harness & Saddlery Factory, Cawnpore. Since then, it has undergone general metamorphosis as TDEs' , DRL (S) and DRL (M) as demanded by time and became a part of Defence Research & Development Organization (DRDO) on its formation in 1958. Defence Materials and Stores Research and Development Establishment (DMSRDE) in present form was constituted in 1976 by the merger of three establishments erstwhile Defence Research Laboratory (Materials), Textiles & Stores Research & Development Establishment and Defence Institute of Stores Preservation and Packaging. It was realized that the synergy between the three units will lead to enhanced capabilities by meeting all the present and future requirements of Defence services in the area of non- metallic materials in a consolidated manner with better utilization of manpower and infrastructure. DMSRDE has continuously progressed as an important laboratory of DRDO earmarked to plan and conduct R&D activities in non- metallic materials keeping in view of the present and future materials requirement of the services and the major programmes of DRDO. DMSRDE has contributed extensively towards these aims on a continuous basis. The establishment has evolved into an important center, with qualified and competent manpower and sophisticated modern tools to carry out studies which suffices a deep insight into continuous and quantum effects occurring at macro, micro and nano scale levels in various non-metallic materials. Global science and technology scenario is rapidly changing with the emergence of new and advanced materials and technologies on the scene. DRDO has also refocused its activities and resources towards more rational, advanced and timely outputs for the services. In this process, the charter of duties of laboratories have been redefined by leaving aside the time barred activities and rationalizing and consolidating similar frontline activities for larger benefits to the Defence Forces and National Security.
