Will ‘Make In India’ Improve Security?

Author: Lt Gen SN Handa (Retd)

Notwithstanding the current politically conducive environment for ushering in the long-delayed and much-needed change in defence production, there are serious challenges along the way – most of them stemming from our own defence procurement and production structures and processes, the existing state of public and private sector defence industry, including the R&D, and a tepid bureaucracy conditioned by old mind sets.


Ecosystem For Military Knowhow Acquisition

Author: Col KV Kuber (Retd)

The SPs need handholding support when they showcase their products and systems to a foreign geography. Our personnel in uniform must accompany the SPs or any other industry that exports with pride to reinforce the reliability of the product and its effectiveness as a proud user. Kudos to the Ministry of Defence and the Indian Defence Industry. We have bright times ahead, while we still live on!


Develop Comprehensive National Power

Author:  Lt Gen Vijay Oberoi (Retd)

The major infirmity of our current higher defence structure lies in keeping the military outside the government, resulting in the receiving of secondhand advices by the political leadership. Inevitably, it is filtered or altered to suit the perspectives of the bureaucrats. This is a fundamental issue, which needs to be changed immediately. This would improve politicomilitary responses to challenges and threats, enhance cost-effectiveness nand assist in the best employment of the armed forces.


Absorb And Improve Imported Technologies

Author: Lt Gen Harwant Singh PVSM, AVSM (Retd)

There is no way the Indian defence forces can meet the emerging security challenges without completely synergising the full potential of all its three components. Non-adoption of the CDS system with fully integrated theatre commands may prove to be India’s nemesis in the next war, as and when it is thrust on the country.


Countering The Dragon

Author: Maj Gen Dhruv C Katoch SM, VSM (Retd)

From the Indian viewpoint, the conduct of a successful defensive battle would require negating Chinese actions at each stage. We would require a very high capability in the NCW (Network Centric Warfare), EW (Electronic Warfare) and space warfare. It is also essential that the Indian Air Force (IAF) has dominance over the Tibetan plateau.
