The Mighty Midget range of motors and Sky Scope range of drones are made by the father and son team of N.Chandrashekhar and Uttam.
He runs D.C.Enterprises, engaged in the design and manufacture of electronic communication components used in defense applications.His main skills consist of synthesis of new designs based on in-depth, critical analysis of existing designs in micro engineering, and engineering innovation, using a vast pool of knowledge of material science and manufacturing methods, both conventional and modern, making it possible to produce reliable products, that pose a challenge by virtue of a small market, a situation in which conventional production techniques fail to be economically viable. Chandrashekhar’s passion for miniature engineering started as early as 1969, at which time he designed and made, mostly from scrap materials, a micro lathe measuring only 15cm. in length and powered by a mains operated synchronous motor also designed and built by him, for the application.
Senior Research Engineer
Uttam has over 10 years of experience in the field of Micro and Unmanned aviation and many of its related areas. He has always had a keen interest and passion for model aircraft and has been able to transform his passion into his career, here at D.C. Enterprises.He started here in D.C. Enterprises with good knowledge and an understanding of existing sources of propulsion for Micro air vehicles and was actively involved in the company’s first initiative into the field of unmanned air vehicles. He currently works in the company as a Senior Design engineer and is actively involved in Design and development of various autonomous and semi autonomous aerial vehicles. These unmanned platforms are no bigger than 1-6 feet in span and have numerous applications in general surveillance for Disaster management, Wildlife monitoring, Traffic, Weather and Pollution monitoring, Land surveillance and Aerial photography and videography.
The company is well supported by a well equipped workshop and toolroom for the fabrication of tools and sub miniature parts in modern engineering alloys and composites, facilitating the production of strong and ultra light high precision components down to a few milligrams in weight. Most of the tools in the workshop use innovative adaptations and modifications tailored to the consistent production of miniature durable components in aerospace materials.
