first_img DCNS India Wins ‘Excellence in Indigenous Technology’ Award February 7, 2013 Industry news Share this article DCNS India set up a dedicated localisation programme as part of the transfer of technology (ToT) agreement with Indian naval shipbuilder Mazagon Dock Limited (MDL) to build six DCNS-designed Scorpene submarines under the P75 contract. On February 6, DCNS India received the prestigious ‘Excellence in Indigenous Technology’ award at Aerospace and Defence Awards 2013 organised by SAP Media Worldwide in Bangalore.The award was presented by Dr. Vijay Kumar Saraswat, Director General of DRDO (Defence Research and Development Organisation) and Scientific Advisor to the Defence Minister in the presence of other senior government officials and delegates from top defence and aerospace companies.On receiving the award, Mr Bernard Buisson, Managing Director of DCNS India commented:“DCNS is deeply honoured and delighted to receive this prestigious award. We would like to thank the evaluation committee for acknowledging the genuine and deep localisation programme set up under the P75 contract. We remain committed to our localisation goals and to meeting the requirements of the Indian Navy and our partner MDL to expand our footprint in India and to participate in future programmes.”In 2005, Indian naval shipbuilder Mazagon Dock Limited forged a partnership with DCNS to produce six Scorpene submarines under the P75 contract, including transfer of technology (ToT) from DCNS to MDL. Since then, DCNS India’s localisation programme has consistently helped Indian partners to contribute to the P75 contract.The equipment covered by the P75 contract is highly specific due to the physical constraints under which submarines operate. As in France, local production follows DCNS’s strict quality standards to ensure optimal performance with maximum safety over the long term. All items are fully tested in India before delivery to MDL for integration, MDL being responsible for building the submarines.DCNS has delivered technical data packages to its Indian Partners and set up a 24/7 local assistance service to help Indian contractors to meet quality requirements and deliver on time. Through DCNS India and its support teams in France, DCNS:• trained over 50 Indian personnel at DCNS facilities in France for over a year (in 2012 and 2013)• is providing on-the-job training and technical support in India for a period of five years concerning manufacturing processes and quality control procedures.[mappress]Naval Today Staff, February 7, 2013; Image: DCNS View post tag: DCNS View post tag: wins View post tag: India View post tag: Excellencecenter_img View post tag: Indigenous Back to overview,Home naval-today DCNS India Wins ‘Excellence in Indigenous Technology’ Award View post tag: Navy View post tag: Naval View post tag: Technology View post tag: News by topic View post tag: awardlast_img read more

New Multi-Purpose Facility

first_imgLast Thursday was my first opportunity to go to track practice in the new Batesville High School multi-purpose facility.  It was a typical March 1st weather day.  It was warm and wet in the morning, and before track practice time rolled around it had rained all day and the temperature was dropping rapidly.  The wind was blowing heavily.  In the old days track practice would have gone down the drain.  Not now!!The Batesville High School track team had a very productive workout in the new facility.  The 3-lane track allowed a normal warm-up for all participants.  After that, we were able to break down into groups.  Some used the track to continue their workout, jumpers did plyo-metrics on one end of the facility, while the shot putters used the other end.  The discus throwers went with me into the Commons area to work on discus form (without the discus–no throwing allowed).  At different times, part of the team was in the weight room right next to the track doing their weight training.It is nice to see that the Batesville spring athletes can now join their counterparts at East Central and Greensburg in having a facility that allows year-round training.last_img read more

first_img Comments Published on March 3, 2019 at 1:32 pm Contact Andrew: [email protected] | @A_E_Graham Facebook Twitter Google+center_img In front of a crop of 2020 recruits visiting campus, Syracuse football opened spring practices on Sunday.“That was probably the best ‘star counts’ we’ve had here at Syracuse,” head coach Dino Babers said referencing the group of potential future signees. Among them were four-star wideout Jaden Dottin and defensive lineman Amin Vanover.Babers also noted Sunday was the best opening day practice he’s seen since coming to SU.Quarterback Tommy DeVito, now listed as the starter following Eric Dungey’s graduation, looked good in practice, Babers said. At the end of practice, DeVito threw two touchdown passes during nonpadded, 11-on-11 drills — he connected with Taj Harris on a deep ball in the back corner of the end zone on the second.The other touchdown went to transfer receiver Trishton Jackson. He, along with transfer running back Abdul Adams, are finally on the depth chart after waiting a year and accounting for three touchdowns in SU’s bowl win.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThree defensive backs — Evan Foster, Scoop Bradshaw and Kyle Strickland — wore green non-contact jerseys for practice. Defensive end Jake Pickard did not participate.last_img read more
