An expert in integrated electronic warfare, Mrs Manjula, designated as an ‘Outstanding Scientist’ of DRDO, said her priority will be to indigenise the various electronic warfare systems for the Indian Air Force. “In the next two years, we will work towards building more Indian-made critical systems for various assets of IAF,” she said.
