Missile Complex Hyderabad to be renamed after Kalam


HYDERABAD (PTI): Missile Complex Hyderabad which comprises Defence Research and Development Laboratory (DRDL), the Advanced Systems Laboratory (ASL) and the Research Centre Imarat (RCI) will soon be renamed as 'Dr A P J Abdul Kalam Missile Complex', official sources said on Monday.

Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) sources told PTI that renaming of Missile Complex Hyderabad has already been approved.

"Creating RCI was perhaps the most satisfying experience of my life. Developing this centre of excellence of missile technology was akin to the joy of a potter shaping artifacts of lasting beauty from mundane clay," Kalam had written in his autobiography 'Wings of Fire'.

A bronze statue of Kalam, who had formulated the country's Integrated Guided Missile Programme (IGMDP) and propelled India towards emerging as a missile power, was unveiled earlier this month at the residential campus of RCI near the Faculty House where he used to stay.
