MINISTER OF DEFENCE INDIA MESSAGE
December 28, 2012
Wars in recent history have amply shown that successful application of air power can make a decisive impact in the outcome of the conflict. Rapid advances in the field of avionics, emerging cutting-edge technologies, battlefield situational awareness, precision deep strikes and 'Beyond Visual Range' capabilities make the air threat extremely potent. Thus, there is a need to maintain a suitable counter capability to negate this threat. I am pleased to see that an important initiative is being taken to bring together experts from within the country and abroad of the Services, DRDO, Defence Production Agencies and the Academia to discuss the multi-dimensional imperatives of Air Defence. I am sure that the proceedings of the Seminar will highlight the significance and relevance of a viable partnership between the Army and Industry in furthering the interests of Ground Based Air Defence. I wish the Corps of Army Air Defence and Cll all the best for a successful conduct of the Second International Seminal on Army Air Defence.

This calls for a continuous process of technology upgradation and transformation of the existing ground-based air defence to secure and protect key assets and installations of the nation and our Armed Forces. I am sure that the Seminar will provide an ideal platform to the participants to visualise the way forward, keeping in mind the backdrop of the...
