About Lab


Laser Science & Technology Centre (LASTEC), Delhi has its origin as Defence Science Laboratory (DSL) established as a nucleus laboratory of DRDO in 1952. In the beginning DSL operated from National Physical Laboratory (NPL) building. Later in 1960, it was shifted to Metcalfe House. In 1982, the DSL moved to its new technical building in Metcalfe House complex and was renamed as Defence Science Centre (DScC). In 1999, in view of the R&D thrust shifting to development of lasers and optoelectronics systems & related technologies, the laboratory was rechristened as Laser Science & Technology Center (LASTEC). With time, many of DSL activities were given to newly formed, specialised DRDO laboratories. DSL has served as a precursor for as many as 15 present DRDO labs, which include DRDL, SSPL, INMAS, FRL, ISSA, DESIDOC, CFEES, SAG and ITM.
