Cyber warfare capabilities
Since there is a growing dependence on satellites for maintaining daily life and to conduct a modern war, the opponents are creating a powerful tool to counter by employing hacking technologies which can reduce everything to a standstill within seconds. It is becoming increasingly evident that any future war between modern militaries would be
Satellites for NCW
Network Centric Warfare (NCW) strategy, which in recent years, has emerged as a major force multiplier in the battlefield operations, draws advantage from the real time sharing of quality information for an enhanced situational awareness through a robust communications network ably supported by a constellation of satellites meant for a variety of
Nano satellites
Like the budget carriers shaping the future of airlines industry, the light weight, cost effective nano satellites are all poised to become a highly affordable facet of space exploration, which, has for long been dominated by “costly and heavy” space platforms. Moreover, the high cost of delivering a satellite payload into the required orbit is a major factor behind the increasing cost of satellite based services.
Human mission to Mars
Though buffeted by a dwindling fund allocation and a declining political and public support, National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) of US has initiated work on buildingSpace Launch System (SLS) described as the most powerful rocket ever realized. As envisaged now, this mega space vehicle is expected to be ready for a take off by
PSLV launch service
After a smooth and majestic take off from the first launch pad of Satish Dhawan Space Centre (SDSC), the Indian spaceport in Sriharikota island on the eastern coast of the country, the four stage, 44-metre tall and 227-tonnetrusted Indian space workhorse, PSLV (Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle) successfully placed six satellites from Singapore into a
GSLV launch-Boost
In a major thrust upwards for the Indian space program, the three stage, heavy weight mark two version of the Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle (GSLV-MKII) equipped with an Indian made upper cryogenic engine stage scripted a vibrant success story by delivering 2117-kg GSAT-6 communications satellite into
Space mission
Notwithstanding the tremendous strides made by Japan in the frontiers areas of scientific research and cutting edge futuristic technology, the island nation is yet to leave its imprint on the multi billion dollar global market for launching satellites of various categories on commercial terms. While the two other Asian space faring nations
NCW operations
In a landmark development of significance to the national security, India’s first ever dedicated defence satellite, GSAT-7 also known as Rukmini, meant for the exclusive use of the Indian Navy has been fully integrated into the network centric operations designed to boost the defence and offensive capabilities in all their manifestations.
Military satellite
Since India’s geopolitical interests are growing in the Indian Ocean region, an official estimate of just one aspect of military satellite requirement-for the Indian Navy in its Indian Ocean Region assignment-was placed at between 80 and 100 by Director General of Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) Dr Avinash Chander not very long
Network warfare
Indian armed forces have validated its network centric warfare capabilities early last March with full spectrum use of its first ever dedicated military satellite G-SAT7 which coordinated seamlessly with all the 60 warships and 75 aircrafts from Indian Navy and Indian Air Force. This happened  during the Indian Navy’s annual TROPEX i.e. Theater level Operational readiness exercise which involved large scale maneuvers in
