From the MD’s Desk

The appointment of the Chief of Defence Staff is by far the most significant
announcements of this month. This was long overdue, Arun Singh Committee way
back in the beginning of this century recommended the appointment. For want of
a larger political consensus and reasons of finding the job description, this was
being held off. The question now is, will the CDS be responsible for jointmanship
and coordination in war or will he be relegated to a peace time training in-charge,
for coordination of training amongst the Forces. Will the CDS be the single point
advisor to the Defence Minister of India? What will be the role of CDS in peace and
Mrs. Shanti Kuber in war, and where exactly will he figure in the National protocol? Will the CDS have
a chair reserved in the CCS the Cabinet Committee on Security? Well, I am sure the
government has thought of all of this and the announcement has come after that.

In a singular stroke, in the same breath, the Prime Minister of India has sounded to the world the resolve
with which the government works and that the government has a 360 degree view of national security,
the Armed Forces will be all the more effective in Kashmir and other insurgency torn places. Alongside, a
complete restructuring of the Armed Forces is underway, with a view to have a smart trim force, thus
incidentally also saving costs. The Defence Ministry has approved the proposal to restructure the Army
Headquarters under which the force would be revamped to face the challenges of modern warfare.
After the approval, 229 officers would be optimised from army headquarters and would be relocated to
units and formations of the field armies. As per the new plans, the army will get a third deputy chief who
would be known as Deputy Chief (Strategy) and who will look after all the important directorates of
military intelligence, information warfare and operations in the force. Information Warfare will also get a
major boost as an officer of Lt Gen rank would monitor this aspect along with cyber warfare. As per the
new plan, the Army will get rid of the post of the Director General of Rashtriya Rifles who would now be
shifted to Northern Command in Udhampur and will now be looked after a Major General rather than a
Lieutenant General.

Indian Navy has lined up several multi-billion dollar deals for helicopters, long-range maritime patrol
aircraft (LRMPA) and submarines which are in important stages of the procurement. The deals for 24 MH
-60R multi-role helicopters (MRH) and 10 more P-8I LRMPA are at an advanced stage with the U.S.
through their Foreign Military Sales route. The process for 111 Naval Utility Helicopters and six
conventional submarines under Project-75I has kicked off through the much-delayed Strategic
Partnership (SP) model. The Navy has moved a proposal for 10 more Boeing made P-8Is estimated to
cost over $3 billion as a follow-on case to the 12 aircraft acquired earlier. The Navy had initially procured
eight P-8Is in a $2.1-billion deal in 2009. It exercised the optional clause for four more in a deal worth
over $1 billion signed in 2016. The aircraft are part of the 312A Naval Air Squadron based at Arakkonam
in Tamil Nadu. The country’s first Indigenous Aircraft Carrier (IAC), Vikrant, is in advanced stage of
construction and will be delivered to the Navy in 2021 for advanced trials. Vikrant, weighing 40,000 tons,
is being built by Cochin Shipyard Limited. It works on Short Take-Off But Arrested Recovery (STOBAR)
mechanism similar to the present carrier INS Vikramaditya with an angular ski-jump. The ship is powered
by four General Electric (GE) gas turbines. It will operate Russian origin MiG-29K fighters, which also fly

from Vikramaditya. The Indian Navy is homing in on electric propulsion for a planned future aircraft carrier,
with a hybrid system likely to be considered for development, most likely in partnership with a US based
partner. There is a plan to build a 65,000 tonner, possibly with electric propulsion and CATOBAR (Catapult
Assisted Take off but Arrested Recovery) so that if there are three aircraft carriers, at least two will be
operational at any given. India currently has the INS Vikramaditya (bought from Russia) operational while
the second carrier, to be named INS Vikrant is under construction at the Cochin Shipyard Limited. Both these
carriers are based on the STOBAR concept – Short Take Off but Arrested Recovery. A huge electric power is
also required as the Indian Navy is considering Electro-Magnetic Aircraft Launch System (EMALS) for the
future carrier – a new technology that can launch much heavier aircraft from the deck.

UK-based subsea engineering and services provider JFD has completed sea acceptance trials and training
activities on the second of two fly-away submarine rescue systems built for the Indian Navy. The activities
were conducted on the east coast of India at Visakhapatnam, where the system will eventually be based. As
part of the trials, JFD and the Indian Navy conducted multiple dives of the system’s deep search and rescue
vehicle (DSRV) to both fixed and angled targets. Other activities that were conducted as part of the systems’
trials and acceptance process include multiple dives of the remotely operated vehicle (ROV) side scan sonar
exercises, and a transfer under pressure operation, the last of which was followed by a safe decompression
process. The Indian Navy is likely to get its first two advanced Talwar class frigates by 2022, following
clearance of payments and key material procurements that will enable Russia’s Yantar Shipyard to
commence full-scale work on the warship. In October 2018, India had inked a $950 million deal for two
warships to be made in Russia, followed by a $ 1.2 billion deal with Goa Shipyard. The advanced frigates will
feature an indigenous surface surveillance radars, the HUMSA NG hull mounted sonar and the Brahmos anti
shipping and land attack missiles. The reason for higher cost of the Indian made ships is that the Yantar yard
has already fabricated two hulls for an abandoned Russian order that are being transferred. The Goa yard
will also need to create infrastructure and obtain technology transfer to commence the work.

Insufficient ToT from French-Spanish shipbuilder Aramaris during ongoing Project 75 which involves building
6 x single hulled Scorpene class submarines, has created a gap. To fill this technology gap for Project 75I,
‘scope, bandwidth and depth of technology transfer’ is vital. The potential Strategic Partners (SPs) are
Mazagon Dock, Mumbai and L&T Kathupali Shipyard, Chennai. Reliance Naval also to be invited by Navy to
bid, given the capacity of its Pipavav Shipyard. Since RNAVAL has been late in delivering an order of Naval
Offshore Patrol vessels and its financial situation is might not meet tender requirements, it will be final by
end of this year if it will be able to deliver the project or not.

The Indian Navy has placed Rs 1,589 crore order with the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) for a
new dedicated military satellite for communications between its warships, aircraft and shore-based units,
with a launch expected within a year. The order for a new military satellite named as GSAT-7R will include
launch cost and procurement of necessary infrastructure on ground. The satellite is expected to eventually
replace the first dedicated Indian military satellite, the GSAT-7, which was launched in 2013. The GSAT-7R,
which will be designed to be compatible with a variety of platforms including future submarines of the
Indian Navy, has an expected launch date in 2020.

Indian Navy is set to commission the fifth Dornier Aircraft Squadron, Indian Naval Air Squadron (INAS) 313 at
Chennai on 22 July 19. The new Air Squadron is scheduled to be commissioned at Naval Air Enclave,


4 | DefInsights | August 2019

Meenambakkam. The Squadron will operate the indigenous HAL built Maritime Surveillance version multi-
role Dornier 228 Short Range Maritime reconnaissance aircraft from Chennai Airport. The Dornier aircraft is
fitted with ‘state-of-the-art’ sensors and equipment which include Advanced Surveillance Radar, Electronic
Sensors and networking features that would enhance Maritime Domain Awareness of Indian Navy and be a
force multiplier during Search and Rescue Operations.

The sixth of eight indigenously built Landing Craft Utility (LCU) MK IV class ships “LCU L 56” is scheduled to
be commissioned into the Indian Navy at Naval Dockyard, Visakhapatnam on Monday, 29 July 2019. LCU L56
is an amphibious ship with its primary role being transportation, deployment and recovery of Main Battle
Tanks, Armoured Vehicles, Troops and Equipment from ship to shore and vice-versa. With a displacement of
900 tons, the ship measures 62 meters in length and is fitted with two MTU diesel engines, which provide a
sustainable speed of over 15 knots. The ship is equipped with the state-of-art equipment and is armed with
two 30 mm CRN-91 guns manufactured by Ordnance Factory Medak (Telangana). The ship would become an
integral part of the Port Blair flotilla under the Naval Component Commander in Andaman and Nicobar
Command and will be deployed for multi-role activities such as Beaching Operations, SAR, Disaster Relief
Operations, Coastal Patrol and Surveillance Operations along the Andaman and Nicobar Group of Islands.

India and Russia are all set to sign a major inter-governmental agreement (IGA) on spare parts for defence
equipment that will also pave the way for transfer of technology and joint manufacture of products under
the Make in India initiative. The agreement will also see better and round-the-clock availability of equipment
for Indian forces. The two countries are in the last stage of finalising the agreement which will cover
equipment used by all three services – Army, Navy and the Indian Air Force. India-Russia joint collaborations
– similar to ones made for BrahMos cruise missiles, Kamov helicopters and the AK-203 rifles factory in
Amethi. The aim is to get the IGA inked during the India-Russia Intergovernmental Commission on Military-
Technical Cooperation in September 2019 in Russia. Initially, Russia had suggested having separate IGAs for
planes, helicopters, armored vehicles, anti- missile systems, naval and (aircraft carrier) Vikramaditya. A
Major General of the Indian Army has been chosen by the Centre as the CEO of the Indo-Russia Rifles Private
Limited factory in Amethi district’s Korwa town which will manufacture AK-203 assault rifles for the military.
Major General Sanjeev Sengar will serve in this role for the next four years, and his team managing the
factory will also have other serving officers of the Indian Army in it.

The Army is moving to modify the AK-47 rifles in its inventory with new accessories to meet its emerging
operational requirements. A process has been initiated for acquiring “weapon speciality kits” that includes
items like tactical flashlight, fibre reinforced pistol grip, swing swivel attachment, polymer rails, rubberised
pistol fore front grip, cheek rest, pointing grip, extendable butt stock and side mount that can be attached to
the rifle in the field as and when required. In February, a deal was signed to procure 72,400 Swiss SIG-716
assault rifles. A deal with Russia is also in the works to procure 6,50,000 Kalashnikov AK-103/203 assault

The UAE based Company Caracal continues to wait for the decision to be taken on the close-quarter-battle
carbines (CQB), worth $ 130 million, even though it has been over a year since it was declared L1. The
Company has cleared all the steps after being declared L1 including the commercial negotiating committee
(CNC), Acceptance Test Procedure report, and has submitted all the documents as requested by the Ministry
of Defence (MoD). The Ministry had put the procurement of the CQBs for the Indian Army on the Fast Track

Procurement (FTP) process.

Indian Army is planning a large-scale purchase of drones for its 1.2 million-strong army to boost surveillance
capability along its volatile borders with neighbouring Pakistan and China. The government plans to spend
$250 billion over 10 years until 2025 on military modernisation to meet challenges from Pakistan and China.
The Indian Army, which currently operates more than 150 Israeli spy drones, is pursuing a tender initiated in
late 2017 for the purchase of 600 unmanned aerial vehicles.

The Indian Army is planning to acquire the Excalibur artillery ammunition from the Americans which can
strike targets more than 50 km away under the emergency procurement procedures. The ammunition is
being acquired for units deployed along the Line of Control where artillery shelling by Pakistan is a common
feature. The Army has also started inducting the US-made M-777 ultra-light howitzers which can be used for
firing the Excalibur ammunition. The IAF recently acquired multiple ammunition and spares for its fighter
aircraft to be war-ready. The acquisition by the Air Force includes the Balakot airstrike-fame Spice 2000
bombs, made by Israel, including the version which can penetrate and destroy fortified structures.

Indian Air Force (IAF) officers are set to leave for Russia later this year to learn how to operate the S-400 long
-range surface-to-air missile systems, the first batch of which New Delhi is set to receive in October 2020.
India and Russia inked a $5.43 billion deal for S-400 air defence missile systems last October, with the first
batch set to be delivered in October 2020. The remaining four will join the Indian Air Force by 2023. At the
time, the United States warned that in line with the 2017 CAATSA, sanctions could not be ruled out.

India has signed deal to acquire 'Strum Ataka' anti-tank missile from Russia for its fleet of Mi-35 attack
choppers. The deal for acquiring 'Strum Ataka' anti-tank missiles was signed with Russia under the
emergency clauses through which the missiles would be supplied within three months of contract signing.
The deal for the missiles is worth around ₹200 crores and would give an added capability to the Mi-35 attack
choppers to take out enemy tanks and other armoured elements. The Mi-35s are the existing attack
choppers of the Indian Air Force and are set to be replaced with the Apache gunships being acquired from
the US and slated to be delivered from next month onwards. The IAF has acquired the Spice-2000 stand-off
weapon system along with a number of spare and air to air missile deals with multiple counties under the
emergency provisions to equip itself for sudden war.

India’s Defence Export Impetus

By Sohil Patel While India celebrates its 73rd Independence Day, we take a look at the
progress towards self-reliance in defence manufacturing. And what better
way to measure the success than defence exports from India. We might not
be at par with developed nations in terms of indigenous platforms across
Ground, Land and Sea, but we have taken significant strides in the last
decade or so to develop technologies and strengthen our manufacturing
both in the public and private sectors.

The defence industry’s production was ₹80,000 crore in 2018-19 of which
₹16,000 crore was the contribution from the private sector, Defence
Minister Rajnath Singh said on Friday 9th Aug 2019, at a round-table
meeting with chief executives of top defence and aerospace companies on
‘Make in India in Defence Industry’. He said defence companies have huge
opportunities in contributing to domestic market in addition to exports. RM
voiced the government’s desire to encourage private industry investment in
defence sector while also strengthening defence PSUs and Ordnance
Factory Board (OFB).

He said there is greater possibility now because the contribution of digital
technologies in defence sector is on the upswing and India has strong
capabilities to develop such technologies where start-ups have a significant
role to play.

India’s defence exports have more than doubled to nearly Rs 11,000 crore on the back of recent policy
liberalisation and access to the US market, given a large amount of offsets being executed by domestic

The increase in defence exports — to Rs 10,745 crore in 2018-19 from Rs 4,682 crore in 2017-18 — is expected
to move up exponentially, with the Rajnath Singh-led defence ministry going ahead with a new general export
licence plan. It will enable Indian companies to export certain equipment to identified nations.

The biggest contributor to Indian exports has been the US, accounting for nearly Rs 5,000 crore worth of
exports, followed by old arms partner Israel and the European Union. Officials said the increase in exports
comes after recent changes in policy that have made it easier for companies to get official permissions.

India is stressing on increasing export of defence equipment to friendly nations and has received requirements
from some central Asian countries.

The country is already exporting defence equipment to various friendly nations, including the US and those in
the Middle-East, South Asia and Africa, Secretary of the Department of Defence Production under Dr. Ajay
Kumar informed.

About 50 Indian companies in the private sector have contributed to defence exports. Some of the major export
destinations for defence products have been Italy, Maldives, Sri Lanka, Russia, France, Nepal, Mauritius, Sri
Lanka, Israel, Egypt, UAE, Bhutan, Ethiopia, Saudi Arabia, Philippines, Poland, Spain and Chile etc. The major
defence items being exported are Personal Protective items, Offshore Patrol Vessels, ALH Helicopter, SU
Avionics, Bharati Radio, Coastal Surveillance Systems, Kavach MoD II Launcher and FCS, Spares for Radar,
Electronic System and Light Engineering Mechanical Parts etc.

India tweaks rules for friendly countries for defence exports

India has tweaked rules to allow friendly countries to use lines of credit or soft loans given to them to buy Indian
defence equipment. The move is aimed at boosting exports, according to two officials aware of the
development. In a recently issued order, the ministries of defence and external affairs said the friendly countries
can buy defence equipments like Offshore Patrol Vessels (OPV) manufactured in India at the same price as
Indian armed forces have bought them for.

Initially, the new procedure will apply to Defence Public Sector Units and Ordnance Factory Boards. “Once this
gains acceptance, we have plans to extend it to the private sector as well,” an MoD official said. As per the new


10 | DefInsights | August 2019

procedure, a friendly country can write to the ministry of external affairs indicating what it wants to buy from
India. The MEA, after checking with the ministry of defence, will inform the country whether a similar item
has been bought by the Indian armed forces and at what price .

Export Policy and Licence
The Export policy in India for the manufacturing and exporting of components and equipment of critical
defence platforms categorised as dual-use items and technologies, are either completely prohibited or
permitted under license, only. Such dual use items, with the nomenclature of SCOMET (Special Chemicals,
Organisms, Materials, Equipment and Technologies), as per the Foreign Trade Policy, are assigned specific
codes called the ITC – HS Code (Indian Trade Clarification – Harmonised System Code). The products that are
under the compulsory licencing regime are mentioned in Chapter 88 (all aerospace related products), and
Chapter 93 (arms and ammunition) and ITC HS code of 8710 also covers Armoured vehicles
Criteria to Qualify for the Issue of License:
 The export license applications are scrutinised and issued on case-to-case basis, after thorough

evaluation, considering the following factors, as per its categorisation under the SCOMET list:
 End-user credentials, credibility of declarations of end-use of the item or technology, integrity of chain of

transmission of item from supplier to end user, and the potential of item or technology, including timing
of its export, to contribute to end users that are not in conformity with India’s national security or foreign
policy goals and objectives, objectives of global non-proliferation, or its obligations under treaties to
which it is a State party;
 Assessed risk that exported items will fall into hands of terrorists, terrorist groups, and non-State actors;

Growth of Shipbuilding Sector key for India to
become a $5 trillion economy by 2024

Shipbuilding has a direct relationship with nation building. A ‘vibrant’ shipbuilding industry contributes
immensely to the economy and security of a nation since it directly impacts the national GDP. It
generates demand in various upstream industries such as steel, aluminium, electrical machinery and
equipment etc., and downstream sectors such as infrastructure and services and therefore the
multiplier for job creation is upward of 36-50 times the shipyard strength. Shipbuilding has been
identified as a key strategic sector under the Make in India initiative. Though a fair amount of
technology and indigenisation has been achieved, additional capacities and new capabilities for the
rapid growth of the sector is required. While India has developed a national capability to design and
build world class warships and submarines, it does not design or build commercial ships vital for the
growth of the economy and for national security. With this background and towards taking stock of the
national shipbuilding industrial base, FICCI in association with Directorate of Naval Design (DND)
[Surface Ship Design Group (SSG)], Indian Navy organised an International Seminar on “Nation Building
through Shipbuilding” on July 25 – 26, 2019 at FICCI, New Delhi.
Admiral Karambir Singh PVSM, AVSM, ADC, Chief of the Naval Staff in his Inaugural Address at the FICCI
– Indian Navy: International Seminar on “Nation Building through Shipbuilding” dwelled upon Indian
Navy’s initiatives and its linkage to nation building. Admiral Singh mentioned that Indian Navy took
formative steps to develop an indigenous ship-building ecosystem 50 years before ‘Make in India’
became a national Mission. He added that Naval shipbuilding could be counted as one of the success
stories of India.

14 | DefInsights | August 2019

While detailing on how Naval shipbuilding contributes substantially to economic growth and nation
building, Admiral Singh spoke about 3 prime contributions. The first one being the considerable levels of
plough-back of naval shipbuilding into the economy. More than 60% of the Naval budget is dedicated to
Capital expenditure. Nearly 70% of this Capital budget has been spent on indigenous sourcing, amounting
to nearly Rs 66,000 Crores in the last five years. Each ship building project creates logistics, spares and
project support ecosystems, comprising OEMs, ancillary industry, and MSMEs, to support each platform.

The second contribution of Naval shipbuilding is its role as a catalyst for employment generation and skill
development. The last contribution is towards strategic outcomes for the nation in terms of protecting
India’s maritime interests in the Indian Ocean Region and beyond. Admiral Singh added that while Navy is
doing its effort diligently, it’s time for the government to focus on mercantile marine which can help India
attain critical mass. He was confident that Shipbuilding sector overall will be a prime contributor to the
country’s economy which is on a trajectory to be a $5 trillion economy.

Reaffirming MoD’s commitment to shipbuilding and enriching the participation of local industries, Mr
Vijayendra, Joint Secretary (NS), Department of Defence Production, Ministry of Defence said that the
navy has a long-term perspective plan for 2015-30 laying out in detail as to what items will be indigenized
by Indian Industry. He also added that DPSU Shipyards have been given instructions to implement a
similar scheme to Make – II by Government of India, to develop their vendor base and to indigenize the
equipment and parts that are being currently imported.

Welcoming the Chief Guest and other dignitaries during the Inaugural Session, Mr. Sandip Somany lauded
that the seminar is the first of its kind where all stakeholders have come together on a common platform
to devise the way forward for the shipbuilding sector. He added that our nation has the talent,
infrastructure, market and its time we raise the finance working together with the government to achieve
nation building through shipbuilding.

Mr. J D Patil, Whole Time Director and Member of the Board, Larsen & Toubro Ltd and Chairman, FICCI
Defence Committee, said that nations around the world are investing greater money in their navies as
against on the land. He added that India too is on its journey to build its naval supremacy and the growth
of shipbuilding industry is inevitable.

The 2-day international seminar covered wide range of themes for discussion including National Policy
Framework for Shipbuilding; Efficiency Enablers in Ship Design / Ship Construction; Financing
Shipbuilding; New Considerations in Ship Design and Developing Indigenous Vendor Base. A special
session was also organised which had the participation of Mr. Oleg N Ryazantsev, Deputy Minister of
Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation as a special guest. Mr. Ryazantsev led a 25-member
delegation from Russia for this seminar.

Raksha Mantri Shri Rajnath Singh chairs first Defence Acquisition Council meeting

To give a boost to indigenisation, the Defence Acquisition Council (DAC), chaired by Raksha Mantri Shri
Rajnath Singh, accorded approval for procurement of indigenous Software Defined Radio (SDRTactical) and
Next Generation Maritime Mobile Coastal Batteries (Long Range) for the Indian Navy.

The SDR is a complex and state of art communication system, which has been indigenously designed and
developed by DRDO, BEL and Weapons Electronics System Engineering Establishment (WESEE). It would
enable information sharing, collaboration and situational awareness through high-speed data and secure
voice communication with anti-jamming capability.

Next Generation Maritime Mobile Coastal Batteries (NGMMCB, Long Range) would be fitted with supersonic
BrahMos surface-to-surface cruise missiles and would be deployed along the coast. The NGMMCB has been
developed and manufactured in India by Indo-Russia Joint Venture Company, M/s BrahMos Aerospace
Private Limited.

Both these indigenously developed equipment are of the latest generation and would give a fillip to the
Make-in-India initiatives of the Government.

Continuing its focus on ‘Ease of business’ in the defence acquisition, the DAC also approved amendments to
the Defence Procurement Procedure 2016. The amendments are designed to simplify processes under the
‘Make’ category as well as ‘Offsets’.

Defence Ministry to invest Rs 400 crore with industry to build test facilities

The government will invest Rs 400 crore to partner with the private industry for creating a new cluster of
testing infrastructure for military equipment, with a range for trials and testing for drones set to be the pilot

In a new initiative to encourage research and development in military systems, the Rajnath Singh led
defence ministry will bear up to 75 percent of the costs of setting up the test ranges which will be run by a
private consortium.

The Defence Testing Infrastructure Scheme (DTIS) being unrolled by the ministry will invite consortiums
from the industry, associations or academia to set up and run the eight greenfield ranges for defence and
aerospace related production.

“Each facility will be setup through a Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV), hereinafter referred to as the
Implementation Agency, which may be promoted/constituted by private entities (Industry, Industry
association, R&D/Academic institution etc.),” a notification by the ministry reads.

The test facilities planned at different locations includes ranges for unmanned aerial vehicles, electronic
warfare, software testing, blast testing facilities, specialized driving tracks and ship motion testing. These
new facilities will be in addition to test labs that have been set up through the country by public sector units
and military units.

The test facilities are expected to come up at the two defence corridors announced by the government in
Uttar Pradesh and Tamil Nadu. “These corridors have been selected as they are expected to support large
number of industries involved in defence and aerospace manufacturing in the future,” the defence ministry
note says.

GRSE launches its 5th fast patrol vessel for Indian Coast Guard

Miniratna Category 1 defence PSU and premier warship builder Garden Reach Shipbuilders and Engineers
(GRSE) on 10th Aug 2019, launched the Fifth Fast Patrol Vessel (FPV) for the Indian Coast Guard at Raja
Bagan Dockyard Unit of GRSE, Kolkata. This ship, to be commissioned as ICGS Kanaklata Barua, is the last in
the series of Five FPVs built by GRSE. The ship is 50m long, 7.5m wide and has a displacement of around 308
tons. These FPVs are designed for a maximum speed of 34 knots with an endurance of more than 1500
nautical miles and come with an efficient hull form developed in-house and proven after extensive model
testing. The FPV designs are an improvisation on the Inshore Patrol Vessels built by GRSE for the Indian
Coast Guard in 2013 and are well suited for patrolling, anti-smuggling, anti-poaching, and rescue operations.
They come fitted with state-of-the-art main engines with advanced control systems and water jet units and
an ‘integrated bridge system’ assimilating all communication and navigation systems. The key armament of
a 40/60 gun and improved habitability features with fully air-conditioned modular accommodation for 35
personnel are the other salient features of these ships.

DRDO working on creating laser and microwave-based directed energy weapons (DEWS)

Once created, this specialised weaponry can disable enemy missiles and drones without leaving physical
debris behind, revealed DRDO Chairman Dr G. Satheesh Reddy while delivering the 12th annual Air Chief
Marshal L.M. Katre Memorial Lecture in Bengaluru.

Explaining the importance of this proposed development in the context of anti-satellite (ASAT) missiles that
the DRDO had successfully tested in trials in March this year, Dr Reddy said while an ASAT missile leaves
behind substantial debris of different sizes after hitting its intended target, laser-based and microwave-
based directed energy weapons will disable enemy missiles and drones temporarily or permanently and not
leave physical debris behind.

Dr Reddy further said that once manufactured and approved for use, these directed energy weapons (DEWs)
would play a key role in wars of the future, if and when they take place.

All activities linked to the development of DEWs are being done under the supervision of the Centre for High
Energy Systems and Sciences, which is based in the Indian city of Hyderabad, Dr Reddy said, adding that for
India to be counted globally as a technology leader, it should lay out a roadmap for futuristic technologies at
least a decade, if not two decades in advance.

The country will remain a technology follower and not a technology leader if it does not prepare such a
roadmap, the DRDO chief said at the lecture, organised by the Air Force Association Karnataka in honour of
India’s former air force chief.
