The Defence Research and Development Organization (DRDO) has set up a Naval Research Board (NRB), in September 1996 to strengthen and deepen the knowledge base related to the Naval environment. The NRB has a flexible approach to basic research, funding and project execution.


The Board has instituted a Grants-in-Aid Scheme to nurture research talent and to create research facilities in IITs, Universities, higher technological institutions, colleges and other research centers including industries in the country for promoting basic research, design and development.


The scheme is co-ordinated through specialist panels constituted for various disciplines viz. Materials (including Composites and stealth), Hydrodynamics (including propulsion), Sonar and Signal Behaviour, Ocean Environment and Scientific Computing.
