DRDO is continuously working for the Indian Army. Indian soldiers never go back from their duty, whether it is cold or snowing. Always keep doing their work. But for their safety and they do not face many problems in cold and snowy areas, a separate uniform is prepared for them. In this seizure, DRDO has handed over indigenous and Extreme Cold Weather Clothing System (ECWCS) to five Indian companies to meet the critical requirements of the Army, which will fabricate these ultra-warm clothing in India itself. Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO) Chairman Dr. G Satheesh Reddy handed over the technology to the companies in the national capital on Monday. Warm clothes will help them stay posted on the border for a longer duration.
The soldiers of our army administer the country in their regular snow in glaciers and Himalayan peaks and in such a situation they need more warm clothes. Our army is stationed in cold snowy areas. And they do not have many safety measures from cold so that creates trouble standing in the cold, so warm uniforms are prepared. At the same time, the Indian Army will benefit greatly from this indigenous technology. They will now be able to stand longer in the hilly areas. The Indian Army has been importing extreme cold weather clothing and several Special Clothing and Mountaineering Equipment (SCME) items for soldiers stationed in high altitude areas.
The Ministry said that the ECWCS system designed by DRDO is an ergonomically organized modular specialized textile technique with improved thermal insulation physical comfort based on the insulation required in different ambient climatic conditions in the Himalayan regions during different levels of physical activity. With its help, the cold will be avoided and at the same time, the body becomes moist in cold areas, which can also be avoided. With this, Indian Army personnel will be able to work in a better way.
According to DRDO, the three-tier extreme cold weather clothing system has been designed to provide thermal insulation between plus 15 degrees and minus 50 degrees Celsius. Meaning that even at minus 50 degrees, the body temperature will be right and there will be warmth. If the normal uniform is kept in such a degree of work, no one can stand for long because the body becomes completely cold and moist.
The technology incorporates features to provide satisfactory breathability and progressive insulation as well as waterproof and heat-proof features for high altitude operations, including physiological functions associated with breathability, heat and water loss, and rapid sweat absorption. Is. This uniform will also be waterproof as there is a high probability of dew and cold drops and rain in the frozen areas and this uniform can guard the soldier.
