GRSE Virtual Reality Lab Inaugurated
Dr. Ajay Kumar, Secretary, Defence Production inaugurated the Virtual Reality Lab (VRL) set up by Garden Reach Shipbuilders & Engineers (GRSE) at its 61, Park Unit location in Kolkata on July 7. Rear Admiral VK Saxena (Retd), CMD GRSE, SS Dogra, Director (Finance), AK Nanda, Director (Personnel), Cmde Sanjeev Nayyar, Director (Shipbuilding), Vijayendra, Joint Secretary (Naval Systems), Department of Defence Production, and other senior officials of GRSE were present during the ceremony.
The design activity in Central Design Office was required to be strengthened to meet customer requirements. This often required quick, reliable, and accurate resolution of design issues, as raised by the production branch or the vendor. The VRL has more than just enabled this activity for the shipbuilder: now the virtual reality facility also enables fast dealing and analyses of upcoming issues in design phases leading to better time and resource management. Now 3-D models can be created in a virtual environment for assisting the production teams and customers to expedite approvals.
Over the years, GRSE has developed capabilities for in-house design & shipbuilding and has made considerable contributions to the indigenous warship construction program of the country which includes state-of-the-art frigates and corvettes to fast patrol vessels.
