Military navigation
Extreme weather, vast distances and stretches of darkness have long made it difficult to protect Arctic territories, and the problem has grown as ice fields recede and open swaths of ocean year-round. Now new tools are helping nations
 
Future of NCW
The Network Centric Warfare is assuming a new dimension to manage the 21st century battle space if a modern war has to be won under a strenuous condition, as fast imposing the will on the enemy is proving to be the key element in clinching the victory.
 
Airborne missile
Among the deadly tactical missiles which can be best suited for airborne platforms, the Hellfire has proved to be one of the most destructive fire power and has earned a name for high degree of accuracy due to its superior features and lethal combination of advanced computing and light material.
 
SFs modernization
To end the multiplicity of types of equipment with the many Special Forces that exist in India today, the only way, it appears that this can be done is by creating the Special Forces Command that has been suggested some time ago. The first priority of such a command should be a review of the inventories of each and every one of the Special Forces.
 
Equipment for SFs
Special Forces are among the most specialized combat forces in the military. They experience rigorous mental and physical training in order to carry out their missions in a quick and extremely effective manner. Special Operations Forces have very demanding physical requirements.
 
Laser technology
After the laser dazzler that can disorient an enemy fighter pilot or disrupt the guidance system of airborne missiles emerged from the Defence Research and Development Organisation laboratories other uses for the technology have been contemplated.
 
Tactical edge
As commercial technologies become more advanced and widely available, adversaries are rapidly developing capabilities that put armed forces at risk. To counter these threats, the US military is developing systems-of-systems concepts in which networks of manned and unmanned platforms, weapons, sensors, and electronic warfare systems interact over robust satellite and tactical communications links.
 
Common link
Due to the increased complexity of current and expected campaigns the need for a full NCW capability in the modern combat force is almost mandatory. This complexity is derived from two main scenarios: all out war with other nations and the asymmetric warfare with guerilla forces.
 
Failed ambitions
An experience in the recent Defexpo 2014 underlines the convoluted manner in which the induction of the private sector into the “defence industry” network is being handled. A very well-known Indian company was displaying
 
Valuable assistance
Unmanned robots already have proven their worth on the battlefield, neutralizing improvised explosive devices, and more capable ones are coming in the future. While robots and unmanned platforms will continue to provide valuable assistance to Soldiers on the battlefield, there may even come a day when they can begin replacing Soldiers.
