NCW preparedness
The successful launch of Indias fourth navigation satellite, IRNSS-1D, by means of an augmented version of the Indian space workhorse, the four stage Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) in March this year, while bringing the country a step closer to realizing the full fledged seven spacecraft IRNSS (Indian Regional Navigation Satellite System) constellation has given a boost to the network centric capability of the Indian armed forces.
 
Space communications
Indian defence forces, as part of the strategy to boost operational efficiency and combat fitness at all levels, are looking at acquiring state of the art communications systems that are secure, robust and reliable. In fact, the massive intelligence failure suffered by the Indian defence forces during and before the 1999 short lived Kargil conflict with Pakistan did bring home the paramount importance of a robust and versatile communications system to stay at the winning edge of the war.
 
Communication systems
The nature of warfare has changed over time. However, certain aspects of battle have remained constant for centuries. Namely, the need to maintain effective command and control of troops, as well as the ability to communicate securely. Modern day warfare requires military units to operate as smaller, more agile forces, across widely distributed geographic areas, in often rugged terrain.
 
Challenges for DPSUs
Indian aerospace industry is yet tightly compartmentalized in the commercial/scientific extremely heartwarming exertions of the Indian Space Research Organisation and the military/defence activities of the Defence Research and Development Organisation which has produced the entire range of several families of missiles
 
Space exploration
The quest to explore the unknown has remained an integral part of the human spirit down the centuries. In fact, the space age heralded by the launch of Soviet Sputnik in 1957 stands out as a sterling tribute to the human vision to look beyond the spaceship earth to sustain human presence in the final frontiers. But then the space exploration continues
 
Electronic warfare
Modern military forces cannot succeed in modern battlefield without the secure and unimpeded use of the electromagnetic spectrum. As armed forces the world over are increasingly dependent on electronic assets to perform every aspect of multi-spectrum operations so the vulnerability of these assets are exposed to the growing number and sophistication of air and ground-based threats.
 
India's space mission
The successful insertion of India’s first interplanetary probe, Mangalyaan Mars Orbiter Mission (MOM) into its final orbit around the Red Planet recently following a series of complex and challenging operations, has opened up a new, scintillating chapter in the exciting space history of India. Verily, India has accomplished the distinction of becoming the
 
Gagan system
In a major policy decision aimed at reaching out to the neighbours, Indian Government has decided to offer the services of Gagan (GPS- aided Geo Augmented Navigation) system designed to support the civil aviation traffic over the Indian skies and in adjoining areas to South east Asian countries to help them generate financial resources
 
Mars mission success
India has created a splendid space history with the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) successfully inserting the Rs 4500-million Indian Mars Orbiter spacecraft into its final orbit around the Red Planet on the morning of September 24th, 2014. It was indeed a space dream come true for India. With this spectacular achievement
 
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
