New Delhi : Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) handed over the design of Mobile Metallic Ramp (MMR) to the Indian Army at a ceremony held at DRDO Bhawan here on August 20, 2019. Secretary Department of Defence R&D and Chairman DRDO, Dr G Satheesh Reddy, handed over the design of MMR to Vice Chief of Army Staff Lt Gen Devraj Anbu.
With load bearing capacity of 70 metric ton (MT), the MMR has been designed and developed by DRDO’s premier research laboratory, Centre for Fire, Explosive and Environment Safety (CFEES), on the requirements projected by Army for reducing the Strategic Mobility time of mobilising Armoured Fighting Vehicles. The ramp will provide the strategic mobility for Armoured and Mechanised units and formations of the Army. It is portable, modular in design, which can be easily assembled or disassembled, according to a PIB release.
Lt Gen Devraj Anbu appreciated the design of MMR and lauded the efforts of DRDO towards meeting the requirement of the Army by drastically reducing the time required for operational mobilisation.
