The joint exercise of Southern Army and South Western Air Command(SWAC) Exercise SUDARSHAN SHAKTI, has entered its crucial phase, says MoD
In this overall effort, Network Centric Warfare (NCW) is one of the crucial aspects being validated. The training was structured to build on from the smallest unit upwards followed by the entire Southern Army, being put through a simulated battlefield environment.
The endeavour has been to validate and integrate the use of all available assets, including Satellites, UAVs and HUMINT(human intelligence) to assist commanders at all levels in taking dynamic and proactive operational action in a fluid battlefield.
Another facet being validated is the real-time sensor-to-shooter loop, which enables commanders to take instant decisions even as information is shared among platforms and personnel to order the weapons to be deployed.
Network Centric Warfare provides shared information of the battle space among armed forces and is an integral part of the ongoing transformational studies.
