The Combat Vehicles Research and Development Establishment (CVRDE), a prominent laboratory within the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO), is making significant strides in the development of a crucial component for Armoured Fighting Vehicles (AFVs). They are working on a Hybrid Rotary Base Junction (HRBJ) designed to facilitate the seamless transfer of power, control, and various signals between the turret and hull sections of AFVs.
In an AFV, the turret serves as the rotating component housing the main gun, while the hull functions as the mobile platform. Efficient communication between the systems within the turret and the hull is essential for the AFV’s proper operation. However, a suitable HRBJ isn’t readily available as an off-the-shelf product.
To address this gap, the CVRDE is undertaking the development of the HRBJ for AFVs through a build-to-specifications (BTS) approach. This involves detailed design analysis and extensive testing to ensure that the HRBJ meets the stringent requirements of AFV applications.
The development of the HRBJ is a significant advancement in enhancing the capabilities and functionality of AFVs, contributing to the ongoing efforts to strengthen India’s defence technology and infrastructure.
