INDO-US Strategic Partnership & IAF New Challenges

Extortions In India Funding Insurgency And Terrorism by V Balasubramaniyan

| | | Share |

Author: V Balasubramaniyan

Insurgencies in India like the Maoists and the Naga groups have digressed from their ideals once they fought for, degenerating into criminal organisations, thriving on revenues derived from criminal methods like extortion. The extortion activity not only results in violence but also translates into evolutions within the insurgent groups and transformations in the larger environment in which they operate.

Cyber Security Of NCW Infrastructure by CAIR

| | | Share |

Author: CAIR
As the stakes are higher and the adversaries more resourceful (state actors), subversion of the supply chain is a far more serious threat for military systems than it is for civilian / commercial systems. Addressing subversion of the supply chain requires stringent inspection regime to mitigate the subversion threat. In addition, since inspection alone cannot totally eliminate the threat, it is necessary to address the threat at the system architecture level as well.

Modi Visit To Japan Under The Dragon’s Shadow by Prof Srikanth Kondapalli

| | | Share |

Author: Prof Srikanth Kondapalli
Both Japan and India were informed by the then Chinese leadership in the 1970s and 1980s that territorial disputes should be shelved for the time being and left to be resolved by the “next generation”. Both Indian and Japanese leaderships are now concerned about the new generation of leadership’s assertiveness in China since 2009. While there is less likelihood of any explicit understanding between Abe and Modi on a common approach towards the territorial disputes with China, the very fact of their meeting could send signals to Beijing to mend fences.

Modernisation Of The Indian Air Force Imperatives For The New Government by Air Marshal BK Pandey

| | | Share |

Author: Air Marshal BK Pandey PVSM, AVSM, VM (Retd)
Like the rest of the nation, the IAF also is full of hope that with the Modi-led NDA government in power, the problem of the glaring deficiencies the Service is afflicted with, will be addressed effectively and in a respectable timeframe. On top of the list is the urgent need to restore the combat potential of the IAF that has been on a continuous downslide in the last few years. As against a currently authorised strength of 39.5 combat squadrons, the strength of the fighter fleet has gone down to 34 squadrons.

Forward Operating Base Importance Of Education For National Security by Dr Rupali Jeswal

| | | Share |

Author: Dr Rupali Jeswal
Education is an enabler for social cohesion. Social cohesion is a common bond amongst people through common culture, values, beliefs, behaviour and goals. And everyone works together to benefit the society as a whole. Education builds social resilience and cohesion through community networks, creates social safety nets and leads to civil society systems with latent power that makes the people and the country secure and resilient.

Air Power Priorities by Air Vice Marshal Manmohan Bahadur

| | | Share |

Author: Air Vice Marshal Manmohan Bahadur VM (Retd)
Wars in the past two decades have given air power a position of pre-eminence in conflict − a weapon of first choice of sorts. With its basic attributes of reach, mobility, flexibility and response, air power brings to bear, in the shortest possible time, the required amount of mass at the required spot.

An Air Strategy For India by AVM AK Tiwary

| | | Share |

Author: AVM AK Tiwary VSM (Retd)
Our mountainous terrains in the NW, North and NE have important bearing on mobility and massing of troops and firepower. The continental distances and prevailing railroad communication entail a period lasting weeks for movement of major surface formations from peacetime locations to their launch pads. However, the air force units are largely unaffected by all the peculiarities of mountainous terrain and altitude. They can deploy rapidly, in matter of hours over vast distance.

The Indian Army’s Expectations From The IAF by Lt Gen Syed Ata Hasnain

| | | Share |

Author: Lt Gen Syed Ata Hasnain PVSM, UYSM, AVSM, SM, VSM (Retd)
As modernisation continues and threats multiply, the IAF can expect a much larger role in thus far untested realms such as cyber warfare and network centric warfare. While individual service requirements will need to be respected these are the times in which the leadership of both services need to be sensitive to the requirements of integration and Jointmanship which will be much more demanding and intense. For me, the IAF remains our greatest force multiplier and I know that every expectation outlined here will be met with the professionalism, robustness, dedication and valour of the air warriors.

Needed A New Security Architecture by Prakash Singh IPS

| | | Share |

Author: Prakash Singh IPS (Retd)
Terrorism, indigenous and transnational, is going to be our biggest internal security challenge in the coming years. The sooner we recognise it and the sooner we prepare for it, the better. The UPA government did not have the political courage to deal with the indigenous sources of terror. No wonder, the domestic terror network has spread across the country. The proximate threat comes from the terrorist outfits being nurtured by Pakistan – Lashkar-e-Toiba, Hizbul Mujahideen etc. The distant threat is from Al Qaeda and the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS).

Indo-US Relations Has Progress Stalled? by Dr Venkat Lokanathan

| | | Share |

Author: Dr Venkat Lokanathan
India, despite persistent efforts, has been unable to do away with viewing the United States through the cold war lenses of distrust and suspicion. Sections of India’s decision-making community believe that the United States needs India more than the other way around. They also espouse that closer ties with the United States would impinge on India’s strategic autonomy especially on relations with China.
