In the development of indigenous manufacturing and innovation, Prama India has partnered with the Government of India Center for Development of Advanced Computing (C-DAC). This collaboration, facilitated through a Transfer of Technology (TOT) agreement, focuses on the production, marketing and support of thermal cameras.
Empowering indigenous manufacturing and innovation
- Prama India’s collaboration with C-DAC, under Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY), underlines India’s commitment towards a self-reliant India.
- This partnership is in line with the vision of a developed India and a secure India, contributing to the country’s self-reliance and security objectives.
Official announcement at Digital India FutureLabs Summit
- Partnership officially unveiled Digital India FutureLabs SummitIt is an event showcasing India’s progress in next generation electronics.
- Rajeev Chandrashekhar, Minister of State for MeitY highlighted the importance of such collaboration in promoting indigenous manufacturing and innovation.
Promoting innovation through research and development
- The collaboration between PRIMA India and C-DAC marks a leap in research and development (R&D) efforts to leverage technologies. Develop next generation thermal cameras.
- This initiative is in line with the Digital India program’s goal of moving India towards global leadership Electronics System Design and Manufacturing (ESDM).
Understanding Thermographic Cameras
- Thermographic camera, also called infrared camera or thermal imaging camera, Operates by capturing images through infrared radiationUnlike standard cameras which use visible light.
- While a typical camera captures light in the 400–700 nanometer range, infrared cameras detect wavelengths ranging from about 1,000 nm (1 micrometre or micrometre) to about 14,000 nm (14 micrometres). The process of capturing and analyzing the data produced by these cameras is known as thermography.
Changing India’s electronics landscape
- Prama India’s commitment towards indigenous manufacturing reflects the ethos of ‘Made for India, Made by India, Made in India’.
- By manufacturing thermal cameras tailored to Indian security requirements, Prama India contributes to the country’s journey towards self-reliance in technology.
- By focusing on innovation, collaboration and indigenous manufacturing, India is set to lead the global electronics industry in the future.
