Developing network centric warfare
Creating a information superhighway in the midst of the battlefield is really a challenging task but with the advent of new technologies the hyper bandwidth data flow can knock down the opponent within hours of hostility with an approach: no kill but all stop. The overall objective is to generate capability
 
ISR-cum-AWACS technology
With the introduction of space based modern technological platforms, militaries are looking for instant and around the clock information superhighways which can lead them to analyze exact nature of threat and fast counter response to neutralize the enemy. In this regard, the principal function of the intelligence, surveillance
 
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
 
Role of C4ISR capability
The battlefield is becoming digital to counter the enemy movement even in the dead of the night or despite an inclement weather creating hassle for the advancement in most difficult terrine conditions. The war cannot stop even for a moment because a single pause can give enormous advantage to the enemy which will quickly regroup and launch a
 
Role of ISR in warfare
The saturation of multispectral beams and increasing presence of electromagnetic radiations in the modern battlefield can be handy on one hand but it can create massive interference which may lead to absolute failure of command and control systems. This is why militaries around the world are continuously conducting advanced
 
Reusable space vehicle
Since the dawn of the space age heralded by the historic launch of Soviet Sputnik way back in October 1957, there has been a growing focus on not only reducing the cost of access to space but also making space journey a routine affair. For one, the once only used, expendable space boosters currently deployed for orbital missions
 
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
 
Evolving technology and PGMs
A miss is as good as a mile. The Indian Air Force will probe the reasons for the failure of two of its precision guided munitions-the runway busting US-made Paveway air-to-surface missile and the quick-reaction Soviet era OSA-AK (M) anti-aircraft missile-during Operation Iron Fist in Rajasthan in mid-March. The Iron Fist event was intended to send out a stern message to India’s recalcitrant neighbours. Failures of this kind could well encourage Pakistan to indulge in further misadventures.
 
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
