A Tribute To A Living Legend

Author: Air Chief Marshal N C Suri PVSM, AVSM, VM Former Chief Of Indian Air Force (1991-1993)

I am deeply appreciative of the fact that the ‘Defence and Security Alert’ Magazine have taken it upon themselves to publish an interview with Marshal of the Air Force Arjan Singh, DFC, who is truly a living legend of the Indian Air Force and has brought tremendous credit to himself and the Air Force. This is particularly as the April issue of the magazine coincides with his 97th Birthday.

Defence Technology and Trade Initiative (DTTI)

Author: Amit K Maitra

By participating in co-production and co-development of UAVs, Indian industry will acquire new product development, manufacturing, logistics and marketing skills. The two joint-venture partners’ challenge is to find concrete areas to step up product development, manufacturing, logistics and export marketing cooperation so that only their strategic logic sets the pace of product development and penetration, persuasion and prosecution of their export marketing ventures.


Defence Modernisation – Ways

Author: Lt Gen OP Kaushik PVSM, AVSM, VSM, M-IN-D (Retd)

Two other developments which have encouraged foreign collaboration in ‘Make in India’ effort are economic health of the country and ‘buy back’ concession for the foreign collaborators to export from India to other countries’ surplus production from joint plants. Our economy has come out from ‘Hindu rate of growth’ and has started being accepted as a vibrant and emerging economy. Two events which give positive indications towards ‘Make in India’ efforts in Defence production are: likely launch of Arihant, the Indian made nuclear submarine next month and Tata Motors signing a strategic agreement with Bharat Forge, Pune based Public Sector Undertaking and US-based General Dynamics Land Systems for India’s ` 50,000 crore Future Infantry Combat Vehicle (FICV) production in India.


Creat e DRDO-User Synergy

Author: Manvendra Singh

For India’s Defence industry to grow, DRDO will have to limit its role to that of an incubator rather than attempting to do everything. Incubate ideas, concepts and technologies while the users define requirements, doctrines and then generate development of those products through both domestic and international players. There is no better method than a peer review. And in India, there is no better peer to the DRDO than the ISRO. A good starting point is to observe the functioning and ethos of the Directorate of Naval Design.
