India’s Center for Military AirWorthiness & Certification (CEMILAC), part of the Defense Research Development Organisation (DRDO), with a primary function to certify military aircraft and airborne systems, that relies on other organisations for testing, has asked for testing facilities.
“We need testing infrastructure. Our industry partners do not get slots and as a result, projects are delayed.We are making a request to the government so we can do speedier certification,” P.R Baghel, Group Director, CEMILAC told AerospaceDiary at the international seminar. He refused to comment on the estimated cost for the equipment.
Baghel cited the example of Su-30 tyres that had to be taken to China’s Dynometer test facility. "We would like to (start with) an electromagnetic interference (EMI) and electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) test facility as the tests are important for any electronics certification."

  1. I've had the pleasure of working closely with CEMILAC for a very long time and i tihnk its high time CEMILAC are given their own testing facilities including a dedicated group of test bench expers, performance engineers for helicopters, fighters and transports; a seperate and not shared facility with ADA or NFTC/HAL.

    CEMILAC must also be made independent from DRDO and a seperate military testing center, something like the U.S. Navy's Advanced Aircraft Flight Testing Center in Pautuxent.
