RAeS is a British-founded multi-disciplinary professional institution dedicated to the global aerospace community. It is the oldest aeronautical society in the world.

Reddy, an eminent missile scientist, has made pioneering contributions to navigation and avionics technologies. He took over his post as the 12th scientific adviser to the defence minister in June this year.

He steered many defence projects and programmes as director of Research Centre Imarat and provided necessary thrust to the development of critical technologies.
