HYDERABAD (PTI): India is steadfastly marching towards complete self-reliance in missile systems and technologies, Scientific Advisor to the Defence Minister G Satheesh Reddy has said.

"To create a significant impact on India's science and technology and to promote highest standard of engineering education and practices, professional societies, scientific bodies and academic institutes have to re-align the young force of the country towards the forefronts of current needs and developments," said Satheesh, also the Director General, Missiles and Strategic Systems, DRDO.

The distinguished scientist was presented with prestigious IEI-IEEE Award for Engineering Excellence-2015 on Wednesday in recognition of his significant national contribution towards Missiles and Aerospace technologies at Bengaluru, an official release said.
