Its web page is Following are some excerpts from that page.


The Army Air Defence College has an illustrious history dating back to pre independence era, when the School of Artillery was located at Quetta and the Anti Aircraft Wing was located at Karachi. When India gained Independence 1947, the School of Artillery and the Anti Aircraft Wing moved to Deolali. The Anti Aircraft Wing was renamed as the Air Defence Wing and was placed under School of Artillery.

  In 1955 a case was taken up to relocate Air Defence Wing from Deolali, due to lack of adequate ranges for gun and missile firing. In 1963, the Government of Orissa offered 3000 acres of land at Gopalpur -On –Sea, along with seaward firing range, which was accepted in 1968. In 1979, Government of India sanctioned the establishment of Air Defence and Guided Missile School and Centre at Gopalpur – On – Sea.  Gopalpur Cantonment was inaugurated on 30 October 1984 by late Shrimati Indira Gandhi, the Prime Minister of India.

    This is time when Government of Orissa must demand for making this ADGM College a Defence University. Going by reports, Government of Gujarat and Andhra Pradesh are lobbying hard to get the Defence University in their respective States. In that case three different Universities on Defence Studies can come up with focus on Army, Navy and Air Force respectively. The Kerala Government has already demanded University for Space Research. So, this is time to demand professional universities like University of Forest, University of Space Research, University of Management, Universitu of Infrastructure Studies, and University of Marine Studies etc.

    Orissa has only been able to catch up with the rest of the States after IIT, Central University and AIIMS. Time to set new targets and new goals.
