There are many places across the Himalayan region where highways are prone to number of geo-hazards such as avalanches, floods, landslides and debris flow etc. One such site is located at about 20 km from Manali on the approach road to South Portal of upcoming Rohtang tunnel. To protect the highway from all such geo-hazards a special type of structure known as Geo-Hazard Gallery is designed with provisions to pass flowing water, flash flood, debris and avalanche without disturbing the flow of traffic. It is basically a box type of structure in which there are provisions to allow the flowing water to pass underneath the carriage way while flash flood and avalanche over the top of roof. A folded grating is provided on the upstream side of structure to avoid damage to main structure from the impact of flowing boulders and for safe rolling down of these boulders, a grating is also provided on the downstream side. Some other features of this unique structure are - ogee spillway for smooth passage of flowing water, retaining wall to take care of active pressure of soil.

Electronics & Computer Sciences

An Aerostat is a lighter than air system that can stay stationary in the air and are tethered to ground. Aerostat balloon derives a lifting force mainly by the buoyant effect that results from displacement of the higher density air surrounding it. The gas used is helium because it is safest as being inert and does not burn. Ground based sensors have limited Line Of Sight (LOS) range due to the limitations posed by earths curvature. Mounting these sensors on elevated platforms could increase the LOS range. Aerostats are excellent platforms for these sensors especially in surveillance and communication role for a variety of civil and military applications.

Paratroopers forming a part of the Special Forces need an effective combat free fall life support system along with the parachute to carry out the High Altitude High Opening (HAHO) and High Altitude Low Opening (HALO) operations in combat to gain entry stealthily into the enemy territory. On being dropped from altitudes of 30,000 ft, the paratrooper is exposed to hypoxia and cold temperatures thereby necessitating an effective Life Support System that essentially consists of oxygen system and protective equipment. The developed oxygen system consists of (a) Pre-breather console (PBC) that provides 100% oxygen to the paratrooper in the aircraft to flush out nitrogen in the body while climbing to gain the altitude; (b) Personal Bail-out Oxygen System (PBOS) and Dilution Demand Oxygen Regulator (DDOR) for supply of oxygen/air mix to the paratrooper on being paradropped. Protective equipment consists of helmet with communication facility, oxygen mask, well insulated jump suit, gloves, socks and jack knife. Entire Life Support System has been developed indigenously.
