The five labs were dedicated to the Nation by Prime Minister on 02 January, 2020.

The five newly established labs have started functioning very recently.  However, as suggested by PM during dedication of five DYSLs to the Nation on 02 January, 2020, DRDO will identify more such niche technology areas and will set up YSLs if required.


DRDO is making all-out efforts towards indigenous R&D and technology capability building.  India is self-reliant today in technology areas pertaining to Missiles, Radars, Sonars and Electronic Warfare (EW) and all the requirements in these areas can be met based on indigenous technologies.  DRDO Synergies with Armed Forces, Industry & Academia for development of Technologies and systems based on National priorities.
