China doesnt like the BrahMos because they cant answer this missile.

India should purchase much more BrahMos for their Navy.

Because its not either Taiwan or Kashmir for China. They want both of them.

Army repurposes 21 Signal Group to research futuristic communications tech

The Army has transformed the 21 Signals Group into the Signals Technology Evaluation and Adaptation Group (STEAG). It will function as an elite technology Unit which will research and evaluate futuristic communication technologies like AI, 5G, 6G, machine learning and quantum technologies for defence applications.

“The primary aim is to enhance the communication infrastructure of the Indian Army. This group will be operational under Signals Directorate and is based in Delhi and headed by a Colonel from the Corps of Signals,” a defence source said. “The hi-tech unit will carry out technical scouting, evaluation, development, management of core ICT solutions, and provide user interface support by by maintaining and upgrading available contemporary technologies.”

The STEAG will have a fresh mandate and an approximate strength of 280 personnel, the source stated.

The STEAG will analyse existing technologies keeping the requirements of the Indian Army in mind and draw out use cases for trials and induction, and it will harness the latest and niche technologies available in the civil street and worldwide, the source noted. Accordingly, it will interface with the private sector and academia to develop technology suited to the Army and Indian requirements.

“STEAG will be the nursery to develop tailored technologies spanning the complete spectrum of wired and wireless systems to include electronic exchanges, mobile communications, software defined radios, electronic warfare systems, 5G and 6G networks, quantum technologies, artificial intelligence, machine learning etc.”

In the modern battlefield, communications play a pivotal and decisive role as time is of the essence. The source added that modern warfare necessitates the induction of new equipment to provide seamless communication support to units and formations during operations.

The Indian Army has outlined a programme to procure canister-launched anti-armour loiter munition (CALM) systems and associated accessories to enhance the operational efficiency of the mechanised infantry.

According to an initial procurement notice issued by the Indian Army on 21 March, the service seeks to procure CALM systems to integrate them on T-72 and T-90 main battle tanks (MBTs), BMP-2 armoured fighting vehicles (AFVs), carrier mortar tracked vehicles, and reconnaissance vehicles.

The Indian Army seeks to procure 180 CALM systems to provide remote-controlled beyond-visual-line-of-sight capability to the mechanised infantry and armoured units at stand-off ranges of up to 15 km to destroy enemy AFVs with a high-explosive anti-tank (HEAT) warhead.

In addition, the Indian Army intends to procure associated accessories, such as 45 ground control stations (GCSs) with antenna systems, 14 indoor simulators, 14 training loiter munitions (LMs) with inert warheads, technical literature, and training aggregates.

According to the Indian Army, the launch altitude of the CALM system must be up to 4,500 m above the mean sea level. A hermetically sealed canister must be provided with each LM, and the weight of each LM with canister must not exceed 25 kg.

The canister should feature a heated gas pneumatic-assisted launch capability to fire the LM, and the propulsion system of the munition must be electric. The loiter time of the munition must be at least 15 minutes at maximum operational range, with an endurance of at least 60 minutes.

A look into the high altitude operations of Ladakh sector

concerning mostly the army (SPH, Tanks, IFV, Infantry, logistics, stategic equations) but also the airforce and the general area at large too.


At very least some interesting footage to flick through....
