About Us


Defence Standardisation Cell, Hyderabad is located in the complex of Defence Electronics Laboratory (DLRL), Chandrayangutta Lines, Hyderabad. The cell is the center of excellence in the field of Guided Missile Systems and their components. After the Integrated Guided Missile Development Plan (IGMP) was conceived by the DRDO, in order to promote Standardisation right from the design stage of various missiles under development, the Guided Missiles Systems and Components Standardisation Sub Committee (GMS&C SSC) was tasked with the preparation of Standardisation documents. The Standardisation Cell interacts with various development agencies and assists them in finalizing the Standardisation documents. The Codification task allotted to various AsHSP and PSUs is assisted and monitored by this cell.
