Dr. Haridwar Singh (born March 31, 1944, Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh, India) was an Indian Emeritus Scientist. He has been Director of the High Energy Materials Research Laboratory (H.E.M.R.L), Defence Research and Development Organisation, (D.R.D.O), Ministry of Defence Pune from 1990 to 2004.

Biography[edit]

Dr. Haridwar Singh has been an eminent scientist who pioneered research for new and advanced energetic materials and development of advanced indigenous technologies for all varieties of solid rocket propellants like D.B.P (Double Base Propellant), Nitramine base, Fuel rich propellants, advanced propellants based on new oxidizers and energetic binders and technologies for advanced powerful and thermally stable high explosives and advanced pyrotechnic smokes. 

He has formulated methodology for life extension of propulsion systems of advanced missiles, which resulted in enormous financial savings for the country.

Among his noteworthy contributions are development of energetic low vulnerability gun propellants, Explosive Reactor Armour (E.R.A) technology, Fuel Air Explosive (F.A.E) and Thermo-baric explosive technology and C.C.C.T (Combustible Cartridge Case Technology).

He successfully initiated and monitored many challenging and time-bound mission-oriented research programms in the area of high energy materials especially, propellants and explosives for rockets, missiles and advanced pyrotechnics. The spectrum of scientific achievements under his capable leadership range from development and transfer of advanced technologies of high energy propellants for various applications including state-of-the-art propellant technology of a novel class of low vulnerability ammunition (LOVA) for tank gun to development of explosive reactive armour, combustible cartridge case technology, high explosive compositions for different types of warheads, advanced non-smoky RD X-based propellants for booster and sustainer applications. India has gained an expertise of life extension of propulsion system of missiles under such extraordinary guidance.

His contributions have become an asset for the Defence Services and has made the country self-sufficient in the field.

Dr. Haridwar Singh has been renowned in the national and international scientific community for possessing a unique combination of superior technical prowess and dynamic leadership. Owing to such qualities, he was a close scientific advisor to the 11th President of India, Dr. A. P. J Abdul Kalam and several Indian Prime Ministers.
