The targets of the IGCAR to transfer 10 more technologies by December

The Mrs. Gandhi Centre for Atomic Research (IGCAR), Kalpakkam, hopes to maneuver 10 technology to the industry by the top of this year within the fields of health care, environmental sensors, protection electronics et al, a senior official said.

Chennai, the Indira Nehru Gandhi Centre for Atomic Research (IGCAR), Kalpakkam hopes to maneuver 10 technology to the healthcare, environmental sensors, protection electronics and other industries by the tip of this year, said a senior official.

He also said that the environment and safety sensors employed in the integrated centres of the IGCAR were built in-house and zip was purchased from outside.

“We are going to move 10 more technologies by the tip of December. Technologies are going to be within the fields of healthcare, environmental sensors, protection electronics,” A.K. Bhaduri, Director of the IGCAR, told the media.

“We attempt to move our technology to about 25 startups a year,” Bhaduri said.

As per him, the centre has built sewage treatment plants that are being employed in Kalpakkam, and IGCAR will start promoting them.

“A team has been founded to support the innovations developed by the IGCAR,” Bhaduri said.

The IGCAR signs non-exclusive MOUs with stakeholders with a one-time technology transfer fee of Rs 5 lakh and also gets some share of the income received by the business.

On Friday, IGCAR announced the transition of technology for thermal imaging for early detection of carcinoma using computing / deep learning software, an ambient radiation detector and a transportable Air volume sampler.

As far as thermal imaging software for the diagnosis of carcinoma is worried, IGCAR has devised a low-cost, non-invasive breast thermography technique supported non-ionizing radiation.

The picture is analysed using computer science / Deep Learning diagnostic software.

The approach is further enhanced by taking test cases from hospitals and also the MOU was signed with the Sri Ramachandra instruction and Research Institute (SRIHER), Chennai.

The IGCAR official said that mammography is mostly taken only after 40 years old. However, IGCAR technologies are often accustomed detect a far earlier era.

As per IGCAR, solar-powered wireless linked radiation detector (Autonomic Gamma Dose Logger) has been built to calculate environmental radiation which will be utilized in nuclear installations and also for general radiation monitoring in other places.

Broad movements of those units, even around rough terrain, are possible. It may be installed around borders to trace movements of radioactive materials.

The aim of the MOU for technology transfer is to be through with Ideal Sensors, Chennai.

The portable air volume sampler — an import substitute — could be a lightweight instrument fabricated from fibre reinforced plastic and wont to gather airborne particles in an exceedingly philtre paper medium.

MoU’s plan for technology transfer was concluded with the primary Source Impex Bengaluru.

A Memorandum of Understanding ( MOU) has also been signed with the Indian Council for Agricultural Research (ICAR)-Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Perambalur, Tamil Nadu for joint research and innovation in irradiation based studies in plants, crops and other allied and related fields.

Meanwhile, at the IGCAR Technology Incubation Centre, Kalpakkam was also inaugurated by Secretary of nuclear energy, K.N. Vyas, via a video call.

As per the IGCAR, the Incubation Centre are going to be catalytic within the incubation of certain innovations from the IGCAR, still because the spin-off of technology from the Bhabha Atomic Research Centre (BARC) and other DAE units within the southern a part of the country by effective hand-holding with entrepreneurs and Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSME).
