Young achievers: Brajnish Sitara, navigational engineer at Research Centre Imarat, Hyderabad

Brajnish Sitara, navigational engineer

By Syed Akbar

India made an impressive achievement on the missiles front during 2012, successfully
firing a series of missiles. For any missile to complete its course and hit the given
target, it should be `guided’ properly. Brajnish Sitara, 31, a navigational engineer with
the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO), made significant contribution
in guiding the missiles to destroy the targets.

A member of the navigation team, Brajnish has mastered the art of navigational sciences
and aerospace engineering at quite a young age. An engineering graduate from the National
Institute of Technology, Jamshedpur, Brajnish made Hyderabad his second home city. He has
been associated with DRDO, Hyderabad, for the past nine years.

This year Brajnish was awarded the ‘Young Engineer Award’ by the Indian National Academy
of Engineering (INAE) for his outstanding contributions towards development of new
alignment and navigation algorithms and schemes. They have a high accuracy rate. His
contribution has helped in advanced navigational facilities for ships, aircraft and
strategic applications.

Brajnish is also responsible for development of advanced inertial sensor models and aided
navigation techniques for a number of defence projects, besides missiles.
