This contributed towards space rockets yet there is no rocket in current India - military or space - that is named after Tipu. In fact the Indian establishment enables the Hindutvadis to spread hate against Tipu, a man who was a progressive administrator identifying with the French Revolution, doing things like redistributing lands from upper caste people to the oppressed lower castes. Had he lived into the mid of the next century he would have been the first to introduce Communism in India. Please read this post of mine.
Edit : I will say other than Ashoka and Akbar it is Tipu who was the best ruler in South Asia.
