About Chandipur

Integrated Test Range is located at Chandipur in the eastern part of India in the state of Odisha. It enjoys a great geographical location advantage as it is on the coast line of Bay of Bengal and well connected by Rail and Road with major cities of India. Located on the unique sea beach of Chandipur which has attained global popularity due to the ‘Vanishing Sea’ phenomena, provides an advantage for weapon system test in term of recovery of flight vehicles and positioning of land targets.

​Water recedes about 5 km during low tide and comes back to coast during high tide. This phenomenon happens twice a day. Tourists from different parts of the world visit Chandipur sea beach to witness this event. Being in the tropical region, the summer at Chandipur is generally warm accompanied by monsoon rains. The winter season from December to February is more comfortable with average high and low temperatures of 28 °C and 13 °C respectively and no rainfall occurs except a few occasions due to western disturbances. Winter is especially enjoyable during the month of February at Chandipur because of bright sunny days with seasonal flowers blooming all around. That is why the Conference has been scheduled in the month of February, the most pleasant part of the year.


National Conference on Range Technology (NACORT 2006) was organized by Integrated Test Range, Chandipur during 28th – 30th November, 2006. The objective of this conference was to bring together various scientists, engineers, technologists and entrepreneurs of the country, who are engaged in R & D activities of Test and Evaluation along with Range Instrumentation Systems and to share their expertise and infrastructures so as to initiate collaborative R & D work of National Interest. 

Papers were invited to focus various areas of Range Technology like Electro Optical Tracking Systems, Tracking Radar Systems, Phased Array Radar Systems, Integrated Telemetry Tracking and Command Network, Phased Array Telemetry System, Doppler Radars and applications in Trajectography. The conference also plans to cover areas related to Automatic Target Detection and Tracking, Multi Target Tracking and Analysis, Air and Ship Borne Tracking Systems, Real Time Software for Test Range application, Expert System for Range Safety Decision Making, Simulation Software, Target Presentation and Ranging, Broadband, Underwater and Satellite Communication, Video Streaming, Cryptography, Surveillance and Security.

There was an overwhelming response from India and Abroad for this conference. After a thorough evaluation, about 55 papers were selected for oral presentation and an equal number for poster presentation. All the papers were organized into three tracks. They are:

  • Range Instrumentation Systems

  • Estimation and Tracking Algorithms

  • Mission Management and Safety

There were four keynote addresses during the conference. They were as under:

Along with the conference, an exhibition was also organised, which showcased the leading technologies available in the field of Test and Evaluation. This provided an unique opportunity for the delegates to interact with the industries. The exhibits were from various public and private sectors and academic institutions. About 70 industries from India and abroad showcased their products and technologies related to defence applications.

The conference was inaugurated by His Excellency Dr A P J Abdul Kalam, the then President of India. Honourable Governor of Orissa Dr Rameswar Thakur also graced the occasion. Sri M Natarajan, SA to RM and DG R &D and Dr V K Saraswat, CC R & D were also present on this auspicious occasion. Sri A K Checker, Director, ITR was the Chairman of the conference and Dr B K Das, Joint Director, ITR was the Convenor. A souvenir having the compilation of all the papers was released during inauguration. The proceedings was also released in the form of a CD (interactive) during this occasion.
More than 300 delegates from India and Abroad participated in the conference. The participating countries were USA, UK, Australia, Denmark, Italy, France, Switzerland, Singapore etc. In general, it was very well organized conference and was quite effective for the delegates.
