Mitigating risks
SEPTEMBER 2013: Going by 21st century military technology trend, a smart Unmanned Ground Vehicle (UGV) is designed and developed for some application specific missions to operate predominantly in hazardous environments. A UGV architecture that would provide an effective and economic path to modernization for technology insertion over time should be key factor of military modernization program.

The urgent need to transform the Indian Army, from one characterized by heavy armor and firepower into a lighter, more responsive force that is at once both lethal and survivable, has made development of practical UGV systems a necessity for the future.


The role of UGV in modern warfare is growing due to technology insertions which could be primarily aimed
 
Locking range
AUGUST 2013: Air-to-air missiles are part of modern battlefield which could help the pilots to lock on early and decimate enemy aerial control of the skies. It gives the opportunity to go for full dominance of skies in view of lethality, accuracy and speed as one fire can ground an expensive enemy asset much before the war begins. Thus, air warfare is seeing lot of change where engagements with the enemy take place from a beyond visual range.

As the fighter planes are trying to be hidden from the enemy screens, the modern air-to-air missile denies this opportunity from a beyond visual range as it is able to hit all enemy moving assets with pin point accuracy despite being invisible.

While trailing enemy fighter plane signatures in the open sky makes it more difficult, it is the speed
 
Digital superhighway
JULY 2013: As the battlefield is getting saturated with new weapons and platforms, timely accessing fast data holds key to success of any military operation that largely depends on digital intervention to score early on the rivals in a war zone that is unforgiving.

Network Centric Warfare has proven its mettle and become battlefield necessity on numerous occasions. Without electronic signals, no commander can decide what he wants to do next


Modern war zone is fast becoming a hub of digital war fighting ground through various Network Centric Operation platforms than mobilization of thousands of ground troops to invade into enemy territory.
 
Combat without soldiers
JUNE 2013: Military investment into developing new generation UAV and UCAV is going to be next target of most leading armed forces as the path to dominate the battlefield will depend how quickly one can control the enemy activities across the defending lines. For example, the recent incursion made by the Chinese PLA troops into India territory in eastern Ladakh immediately prompted the Indian Army to use UAV for reconnaissance and fix the exact nature of incursion that would otherwise have taken a month by human efforts

The role of UAV and UCAV will increase phenomenally in coming years as military planners are depending on these drones to provide them time
