Lastly, they visited the RTRS which works on the concept of ‘Captive Flight Testing’ and the performance of the product is analysed through the electronic data acquisition instrumentation including on-board telemetry and strip chart recorders. The students interacted with the officials and gained a lot of knowledge which will be useful for them in their academics.
