ISR advanced technology
Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) are central to the conduct of warfare both in attack and defence. India has over the past two decade bought all kinds of sensors (airborne and land based) to try and improve its ISR capabilities
 
Setting aerospace command
The decision to set up an aerospace command is moving at a snail’s pace. As a first step towards the creation of an aerospace command the Indian Ministry of Defence has decided to set up an aerospace agency, besides setting up a cyber agency, which will be jointly managing the requirements of three services as a precursor to setting up the cyber command.
 
Nanotechnology
Nanotechnology promises to bring revolutionary changes in many areas, with the potential for great benefits. Nanotechnology (NT) is predicted to produce revolutionary changes, bringing far-reaching consequences in many areas.
 
Indigenous AWACS
India is set to upgrade its indigenous airborne early warning and control systems (AEW&C) aircraft to the larger airborne warning and command system (AWACS) based on a western platform. Hitherto it has used the Russian Ilyushin-76 to fit an Israeli Phalcon radar and the smaller Brazilian Embraer-145 on which it attached an airborne radar system designed and developed in Indian laboratories.
 
Night vision devices
The Indian Army is currently caught in a dilemma of being able to acquire third generation night vision devices in sufficient numbers to equip the fighting man (and machines) at the cutting edge of the battlefield. Given that battles no longer wait for the
 
Indian aerospace
In the context of the changed political landscape in New Delhi, there is a hope and optimism that the hitherto slow moving Indian aerospace sector could script a success story by replacing IT sector and software services industry as the “sunrise area” of the Indian economy in none too distant a future.
 
Situational awareness
The ancient art of warfare has now evolved into a sophisticated battlefield strategy based on the large scale use of fighting platforms and combat equipment stuffed with advanced electronic systems and devices capable of
 
EMP weapons
The future of the battlefield will be closely tied in with the advance of electronics computers, robots and sensors will become more common on the future battlefield. Infantrymen are being equipped with digital radios and computers.
 
Simulator training
No doubt, the kill capability of modern military has grown tremendously in recent years due to the advent of latest technologies, yet it is proving to be a hide and seek game since the enemy is also going to put a cocktail of modern technologies with superior war strategy to avoid detection.
 
Advanced UAVs
Modern war is all about controlling the progress of combat scenario without getting directly engaged into the war theatre from a close proximity. For that, air superiority remains an essential military mission and instead of fighters now UAV and UCAV are all set to perform the task.
