Rapid development
MAY-JUNE 2015: In the 21st century the Second Artillery’s nuclear deterrence force is facing new challenges. The United States and its allies in the region are paying increasing attention to put in place ballistic missile defence and long range precision strike capability. These developments might in the future upset the deterrence balance between the two countries.
Virtual reality
MAY-JUNE 2015: A pilot flying a combat mission requires a high level of situational awareness to maintain safe altitude and airspeed, while avoiding obstructions, evading enemy weapons and, at the same time, executing the mission. To achieve the mission success in such a scenario the pilot may not risk the situational awareness while looking at flight critical instruments in the cockpit very frequently. Therefore to keep the pilots attention intact, militaries around the globe utilize the advanced helmet mounted display (HMD) technology.
Swift interception
MAR-APRIL 2015: Given that missiles have now become capable of being launched in beyond-visual-range or stand-off mode it is imperative that nations seek to defend themselves by detecting these missiles through the use of over-the-horizon long-range radars and intercepting them well away from the intended target.
Vital connection
MAR-APRIL 2015: 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.
Delayed boost

Dynamic growth
JAN-FEB 2015: In the context of the changed political landscape in New Delhi, there is a hope and optimism that the hitherto slow moving Indian aerospace sector could script a “success story” by replacing IT sector and software services industry as the sunrise area of the Indian economy in none too distant a future.
Lucrative market
JAN FEB 2015: As India’s geopolitical interests are expanding in Asia and Africa, the NDA government headed by Prime Minister is giving emphasis to faster modernization of Indian Armed Forces and indigenous development of defence technology.
Bright prospects
JAN-FEB 2015: The world’s leading defence aerospace manufacturers are delighted over the prospects of Indian armed forces acquiring weapon systems and platforms over US$ 100 billion in next decade. Indian defence and aerospace sector
Deadly missions
JAN-FEB 2015: 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.
Airborne warriors
DECEMBER 2014: Air superiority is an essential military mission, and will continue to be so for the foreseeable future. Control of the air is not an end of its own, but rather it provides the flexibility and freedom of action central to a full range of military capabilities.
