Theme : Integrating New Technologies and Optimizing Legacy Systems • Air Threats and Challenges • Countermeasures • New Technologies and Weapon Systems • Upgrades to Legacy Systems • Air Defence • Battle Management • Indigenisation Indian Air Defence Equipment Needs Massive Modernisation An International Seminar on " Air Defence India" is being organized on 26-27 July 2017 at the Manekshaw Centre, New Delhi. Aim The aim of the seminar is to obtain inputs for preparation of a pragmatic road map for modernization of the Army Air Defence and apprise the industry regarding the Army's requirements. Objectives The objectives of the seminar are as follows: • Familiarise with the latest concepts of Air Defence being adopted by other contemporary armies of the world. • Explore existing technology to neutralize new aerial threats. • Explore the concept of convergence of EW with Ground Based Air Defence Weapon Systems. • Build understanding on the aspect of latest trends in communication technology towards achieving net centricity for Air Defence Control & Reporting System (ADC&RS). • Establish clarity on concepts required towards preparation of modernization road map for Army Air Defence. • Project requirements to the industry for the next three Five-Year Plan periods. • Improve industry integration facilitating understanding of the requirement of Army Air Defence. Build a common platform for Army industry cooperation & response to the needs of Army Air Defence. The lethality and the severity of the air threat today has increased manifold. This threat perspective has moved beyond its erstwhile scalar dimension of manned aircraft as the main 'threat vehicle' including attack helicopters with new players like UAVs, cruise missiles, ballistic missiles, precision guided munitions and more, have added new perspective to the aerial offensive capability. This coupled with contemporary and enabling technologies like stealth, soft kill and electronic warfare have revamped the aerial punch into a potent and a viable weapon. The Indian Army will use this occasion to carry out a comprehensive technical and commercial scan of Air Defence related technologies available, both globally and domestically in the foreseeable future. With the evolving air threat and the growing impact of air power on the outcome of conflict, the need for an effective Air Defence capability for air, land and naval operations has become particularly relevant in the current scenario of rapid technological advancements in avionics, stealth technology and precision strike capabilities of multiple aerial threat vehicles. Combat power cannot be sustained without a responsive and contemporary Air Defence. While the severity and lethality of the air threat continues to grow in all its multifarious dimensions, there is a time critical need for modernization of the Corps and upgrade of its existing inventory. With recent initiatives in procurement, Indian Air Defence Corps is moving from near obsolescence to a crucial force for protecting military bases, frontline airbases, tank regiments, warships and also strategic assets. India is looking at systems that can be deployed in multiple configurations and can be used by the Army, Air Force and Navy - from man-portable that can easily lifted by troops in rugged mountain areas and carried to newer locations to fully automated self propelled systems. In the plains, the requirement is to fit it with a twin-launcher and base it on a high-mobility vehicle so that it can accompany the tank regiments to battle or be at airbases and other high-value targets like nuclear plants. India has launched the procurement process for three types of SAMs - medium-range, quick-reaction and man-portable short-range missile systems - to replace the air defence corps' old Russian-origin Kvadrat, Strela and other systems. The modernization road map envisages a vibrant Air Defence force which will be equipped with a range guns and missile systems capable of meeting the challenges posed by the emerging air threat over the next few decades. These weapon systems would be networked on an automated Control and Reporting (C&R) system integrated to the C&R systems of the Indian Air Force. The Indian Army will use this occasion to carry out a comprehensive technical and commercial scan of Air Defence related technologies available, both globally and domestically in the foreseeable future. Air Defence India promises to bring excellent networking and business opportunities, as well as insight, to the air defence community. Exhibition Air Defence India will bring together the Indian and international vendors, delegates and armed forces officers to interact and identify requirements, projects & programmes and technologies and products on offer in the market. It will also promote the proactive participation of the industry in the development of air defence systems. Air Defence India is an ideal opportunity to meet key military/government decision makers, end users of air defence weapons and the world's leading manufacturers. Conference The conference will have high-level participation from the Indian Army, Indian Navy, Indian Air Force, DRDO, Ministry of Defence, academia, defence public sector undertakings and other defence establishments. The best international speakers and experts will address the audience.
