Shri Jitendra J Jadhav, born on 19 December 1965, is currently the The Head, CSIR-4PI (additional charge) and Director of CSIR-National Aerospace Laboratories (CSIR-NAL), Bangalore.  Shri Jadhav has obtained his BE (Electronics) from University of Pune in 1987 and MS from Computer Engineering Department of Defence Institute of Advanced Technology (DIAT), Pune.

He has more than 29 years of experience in Design and Development of Military Systems for Army, Navy, Air Force, Industrial and Railways applications.  He has designed, developed and commercialized major systems like Fire Control Systems for Tanks, Airborne Digital Optronic Pedestal for Nishant, Optical Fire Control Systems for Navy, Mission and Display Computer for LCA, Weapon Control System for LCA, Tactical Mission System for Helicopter and Digital Servo systems for automobiles / Railways.

Prior to taking over charge of Director, CSIR-NAL on 27 June 2016, Shri Jadhav had worked as Outstanding Scientist, Project Director, LCA (AF Mk1) & Group Director (Weapon & Missile System) at the Aeronautical Development Agency (ADA), Bangalore.  As a Project Director-LCA, he was instrumental in steering the Initial Operational Clearance of LCA and induction into services. Under his leadership LCA has obtained many major milestones  few of them are demonstration of Live swing role capability of LCA in Iron Fist 2013. Initial Operational Clearance, Weapon integration of Air to Air (A/A) and Air to Ground (A/G) Weapons,Induction of Aircraft into Service and Participation in Behrain International Air Show.  Prior to his appointment as a Project Director (LCA-MK1-AF) he was Group Director, Weapon & Mission Computer Division.  Under his technical expertise & guidance an indigenous Digital Weapons Management System & Mission Display Computer was developed for LCA which has saved substantial foreign exchange to the Country.  He was instrumental for weaponisation of LCA for integration of closed combat Missiles, Beyond Visual Range (BVR) Missile, Laser Guided Bombs and conventional / smart weapons.

He has won Design Award of ADA in the year 2000, DRDO Scientist of the year award in the year 2008, DRDO Performance Excellence Award for Initial operational clearance of Tejas in the year 2013 and Agni Award for Excellence in Self Reliance in the year 2014.He has published more than 20 papers in National and international journals of repute.

During his short tenure at NAL, NAL has received Technology Innovation Award 2016 and Technofest Award 2016.

Our Mission

The unprecedented development in the science and technology of computing in the last decades opened up tremendous possibilities. It became clear that computing and simulation are going to play critical and enabling roles in addressing many complex problems of scientific significance and societal benefits. Quick to realize this development, CSIR decided to formulate an action plan for harnessing this emerging technology. It was thus that C-MMACS was conceived. It began functioning as a Centre in 1988.

One of the youngest and the smallest of CSIR laboratories, C-MMACS today is a vibrant and a premier institution of research. It has successfully blended basic and applied research.

Our Mission is to develop knowledge products in earth system and information sciences for societal benefit by exploiting modelling, simulation and data science capabilities.

The mission statement thus encompasses continuation of existing modelling and simulation work in earth sciences and places emphasis on exploiting data science capabilities across domains.

Growth of C-MMACS Computing Power - Over Years

Our Mandate

To develop reliable knowledge products for decision support in Earth, Engineering and Information Sciences.

To be the national leader in High Performance Computing as service that will power modelling and informatics across CSIR.

The Vision

To provide modelling, simulation and data intensive capability powered by high performance computing and informatics research.
