Hind High Vacuum Co. Pvt. Ltd. (HHV), one of the global leaders in vacuum and thin film technology, won an award from the Defence Innovation Organisation (DIO), Department of Defence Production, Ministry of Defence, Government of India, at the recently concluded ‘DEFCONNECT 2.0. The award was presented in a glittering ceremony at the Vigyan Bhavan, New Delhi by Defence minister Rajnath Singh. 

 

HHV had participated in the Open Challenge 3.0 organised by iDex (Innovating for Defence Excellence), an initiative of DIO, and bagged a ‘Certificate of Recognition’ for its indigenised & innovative work on Laser Safety Coatings for the Defence Industry.

 

iDex, funded and managed by DIO, aims at creation of an ecosystem to foster innovation and technology development in Defence and Aerospace by engaging Industries and provide them grants/funding and other support to carry out R&D which has good potential for future adoption for Indian defence and aerospace needs. Through the iDEX Open Challenge, it creates opportunities for innovators to propose ways for harnessing their technology capabilities to strengthen India’s defence capabilities.

 

“Today, lasers can be found in a multitude of applications especially laser guns used in defence. Because of the high-power densities that lasers achieve, they pose a serious risk to eyes and skin. Laser Safety Coatings are designed to protect human eyes from laser beams and are categorised into several hazard classes 2M, 3R, 3B and 4, depending on their power limits. The unprotected human eye is extremely sensitive to laser radiation and can be permanently damaged from direct or reflected beams.” said Prasanth Sakhamuri, Managing Director, HHV. ““In this innovation, HHV team at Bangalore developed unique design of optical coatings on glass substrates that can be used for Laser Safety Glasses to be worn by defence personnel and Laser Safety Coated Periscope Prisms used in armoured carriers, Submarines  and battle tanks providing complete protection to the personnel .” 

 

“We are extremely proud of this prestigious recognition from the Ministry of Defence on our ‘Made in India’ laser coating technology. HHV has in-house design, prototype and high-volume optics and thin-film coating manufacturing facility which keeps costs competitive. At present laser coating technology is available only with technologically advanced nations in Europe and the USA.” added Prasanth Sakhamuri.
