FORMATION OF SIATI
Formation of SIATI was on the initiative of Dr. C.G. Krishnadas Nair, then Managing Director of Hindustan Aeronautics Limited, Bangalore. SIATI was founded on 9th December 1991. On receiving the National Aeronautical Prize (constituted by Aeronautical Society of India, Aeronautics R&D Board, Ministry of Defence) for outstanding fundamental and applied work in Aeronautical Science & Technology, Dr Krishnadas Nair set apart the cash prize received for the promotion of SIATI. After discussion with a number of his colleagues in the Aerospace industry, and R&D, SIATI was founded complimentary to Aeronautical Society of India to give focused attention to the growth of aerospace industry through private industry participation, MSME net working with Large Private Industries & PSUs as well as Industry – R&D co-operation and International Co-operation.
SIATI was the vision of Dr.C.G.Krishnadas Nair, Chairman, Hindustan Aeronautics Limited, Bangalore. We have always talked about the need to bridge the gap between R&D and industry, and ensure large scale application of our technological capabilities. SIATI was a right step in this direction in the emerging frontier areas of aerospace. As we move increasingly to a knowledge-based society, with production and processes depending on the generation of new knowledge, our capabilities at the frontiers of current development will be seen to be even more important for what we need in the country, as well as to provide opportunities for significant exports. SIATI plays an important role in this convergence of people, ideas and capabilities in the important frontier and strategic area of aerospace. I wish to convey my congratulations to Dr.Krishnadas Nair on a visionary initiative, which is fructifying so well.
Society of Indian Aerospace Technologies and Industries (SIATI) facilitates and promotes the growth of Aerospace industries, technologies and education in India, academia – industry and R&D Industry interactions and international co-operation.
