About

India Defence covers significant issues related to the defence and security of the country related to what is known in general as conventional defence. The category covers issues related to defence doctrine, organisation, capability and effectiveness and so on. Government of India is responsible for ensuring the defence of India and every part thereof. Supreme Command of the Armed Forces vests in the President. The responsibility for national defence rests with the Cabinet.This is discharged through the Ministry of Defence, which provides the policy framework and wherewithal to the Armed Forces to discharge their responsibilities in the context of the defence of the country. The Raksha Mantri (Defence Minister) is the head of the Ministry of Defence.The principal task of the Defence Ministry is to obtain policy directions of the Government on all defence and security related matters and communicate them for implementation to the Services Headquarters, Inter-Services Organisations, Production Establishments and Research and Development Organisations. It is also required to ensure effective implementation of the Government's policy directions and the execution of approved programmes within the allocated Department of Defence Production (DDP), Department of Defence Research & Development (DDR&D) and Department of Ex-Servicemen Welfare and also Finance Division. The Joint Armed Forces Doctrine is expected to coalesce, synthesise and harmonize the tenets, beliefs and principles of the different Services into one common guideline for carrying out Joint Operations. Military doctrines includes the concept of future wars; use of Armed Forces for deterrence and if required to wage wars in pursuit of National Security Objectives; the use of Armed Forces as part of defence diplomacy and in support of foreign policy; and the role within the country. Military doctrine should be seen as the theoretical foundation of the way Military policy is executed. [Source Joint Doctrine of the Indian Armed Forces].

Defence Technology
Defence Technology which is synonymous to military technology includes as per Encyclopaedia Britannica (EB) the range of weapons, equipment, structures, and vehicles used specifically for the purpose of warfare. It includes the knowledge required to construct such technology, to employ it in combat, and to repair and replenish it. EB divides technology of war into five categories which include offensive and defensive weapons, transportation, communicationsand sensors. Information, cyber and space are today increasingly forming a component of defence technology. Militaries emphasise on building indigenous technologies. In India the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) is the principal agency for development of military technology. DRDO is a network of more than 50 laboratories which are deeply engaged in developing defence technologies covering various disciplines, like aeronautics, armaments, electronics, combat vehicles, engineering systems, instrumentation, missiles, advanced computing and simulation, special materials, naval systems, life sciences, training, information systems and agriculture. In addition recently young scientists laboratories have been added. Several major projects for the development of missiles, armaments, light combat aircrafts, radars, electronic warfare systems etc are on hand and significant achievements have already been made in several such technologies. DRDO has a vision to empower India with cutting-edge defence technologies and a mission to achieve self-reliance in critical defence technologies and systems, while equipping our armed forces with state-of-the-art weapon systems and equipment in accordance with requirements laid down by the three Services. DRDO's pursuit of self-reliance has led to successful indigenous development and production of strategic systems and platforms. [Source DRDO Web Site and EB]
