Bangalore, — CoreEL Technologies, a reputed Systems Engineering & Technology Solutions Company established in 1999, has yet again showcased its supremacy in the Defence Electronics landscape by clinching the prestigious SIDM Champions Award 2023. The award was presented by the honorable Raksha Mantri Shri Rajnath Singh and Dr. Jitendra Singh, MoS PMO and Ministry of Science & Technology in august presence of Dr. Sameer Kamat, Secretary DDR&D and Chairman DRDO, Lt. Gen Upendra Dwivedi, AVSM, General Officer Commanding-in-Chief, Prof. Manoj Gaur, Director IIT Jammu, and numerous other dignitaries. This grand event was orchestrated by the Society of Indian Defence Manufacturers, in collaboration with the Northern Command of the Indian Army and was hosted at IIT Jammu.

This remarkable achievement marks the second consecutive year in which CoreEL Technologies has been selected by SIDM, adding another illustrious accolade to the company's growing list of recognitions within the defense sector in areas such as Radar, C4ISR, Sonar and Electronic Warfare

DUREIC: Pioneering Innovation in Mission Critical Systems

CoreEL Technologies was recognized for its groundbreaking design , the Dual Redundant Ethernet Interface Card (DUREIC), developed under the category of "Import Substitution for Mission Critical Systems." DUREIC stands as a paradigm of excellence in solving the vexing problem of single point failure in Ethernet communication systems used across various aerospace and defense systems. The technology's distinct advantage lies in its ability to future-proof existing platforms, thereby significantly extending their shelf life.

This key design of CoreEL showcases its relentless commitment to Indigenous Innovation and excellence its unwavering support to “Atmanirbharta”, drastically reducing dependencies on foreign sub-systems and thereby enhancing India's technical expertise in the critical networking domain of cyber & net-centric warfare greatly benefitting the Indian armed forces.

DUREIC leverages the Parallel Redundancy Protocol (PRP) as defined in the IEC 62439-3 Standard, operating at the Ethernet Layer within the network stack. This ingenious design ensures that redundancy remains invisible to the application layer and network elements like switches. The project, realized in a record time of approximately 12 months, encompassed all phases from ideation to conceptualization, architecting the algorithm in RTL, and designing and developing the hardware platform. The end product boasts robust embedded software catering to health and statistics, all while ensuring minimal impact on data traffic throughput. Additionally, it incorporates a comprehensive web server for status and health reporting, an exhaustive test suite for Verification & Validation, and modeling of the network nodes. The implementation in hardware is pivotal in eliminating dependencies on software stacks, thereby enhancing security by removing vulnerabilities.

A Vision of Excellence

Commenting on this remarkable achievement, Mr. Vishwanath Padur, Managing Director and CEO of CoreEL Technologies, stated, "CoreEL Technologies was born from a vision of excellence, and for the past twenty-four years, we've relentlessly pursued that vision. We are not just a technology company; we are the embodiment of innovation, dedication, and a deep commitment to advancing our nation's defense and technology sectors. Winning multiple awards for our contributions in the Defense sector is a testament to our unwavering commitment, and the SIDM awards hold a special place in our journey of excellence."
