Jaipur's Monark joins US Army as Scientist


Monark Sharma from Jaipur has been recently appointed as scientist in the AH-64E combat fighter helicopter unit of the US Army.

Before this, Monark started his career as junior research scientist at NASA in the mass communication wing in 2013. His participation in NASA's Moon Baggi Project in 2011 and Luna Boat project in 2012 changed his fortunes and brought him great recognition and opportunities. The team won the best performance award in Moon Baggi project under his leadership and he stood fifth in the Luna Boat project worldwide.

Thereafter, he was selected in the US Army in May 2016. Within a few months, Monark was bestowed with two prestigious awards for his excellence at the designing and research work - the Army Service Model and the Safety Excellence Award, both in 2016. He has got US citizenship via the US Army in 2016. Even NASA had offered him Green Card and a job.

Monark took not much time in proving his excellence at work. He has now bagged the opportunity to serve as scientist in the AH-64E combat fighter helicopter unit of the US Army with an annual remuneration of Rs.1.2 crore. His job role includes designing, inspection, manufacturing and maintenance of the fighter plane which was recently inducted in the US Army this year.

Son of Rakesh Sharma, an additional private secretary in Rajasthan Police, Monark did his schooling from Bhagwan Mahaveer Jain School in C Scheme, Jaipur. He later pursued his Bachelors in Electronics and Communication from the Jaipur National University, Jaipur.

Sharma says that though he didn't get a chance to work in the Indian Army but his services at the US Army are also intended to bring pride for India, his country.
