Dr. G Satheesh Reddy, Secretary, Department of Defence R&D, Government of India, Chairman, DRDO and Director General, Aeronautical Development Agency talks about the recent partnership between DRDO & Godrej Aerospace
"Mumbai based Godrej Aerospace has delivered 1,000 Proportional Solenoid Valves, a critical ventilator component for COVID-19 ventilators, to the Indian Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO). The valve regulates the flow of oxygen based on the requirement of the patient in each breathing cycle.
We're pleased to have partnered with Godrej Aerospace in the development and production of the first 1,000 ventilator valves in a very short time. These components are critical in saving lives in this tragic pandemic. Through the many decades of our association, Godrej has always been a reliable partner. We encourage them to further ramp-up production to serve beyond our nation in such times and support them. We congratulate the management of Godrej, the production staff and shop floor workers and, the company's suppliers for going above and beyond; especially, in such a difficult time."
