Dhruva - 3 Platform is Operational Now

A couple of days back DG-DRDO Avinash Chander Inaugurated Dhruva-3 computing platform.

“It is one of the fastest computing facility in the country and will also play a very good role in cyber security and information processing”, Chander said.

"CVS Sastry, informed that DHRUVA-3 will be used for designing aero-frame structures, stress analysis of materials and simulation of complex systems."

This product came out from the stable of 'Advanced Numerical Research & Analysis Group (ANURAG)'. ANURAG was established in 1988, "to execute specific, time-bound projects/ programmes leading to the development of custom designed computing systems and software packages for numerical analysis and other applications".

Other important products came out from ANURAG are, PACE, ANAMICA (ANURAG's Medical Imaging and Characterization Aid), general purpose microprocessors - ANUPAMA (32-bit RISC processor, and works at 33 MHz clock speed) and ABACUS.

Hope that Dhruva will contribute significantly for the advancement of aircraft design and simulations.
