SP's MAI - - MILITARY UPDATES -

The De­fence Min­is­ter Manohar Par­rikar ded­i­cated the De­fence Com­mu­ni­ca­tion Net­work (DCN) to the na­tion in New Delhi on June 30, 2016. Ad­dress­ing the event, Par­rikar com­pli­mented the three Ser­vices on putting in place a com­mu­ni­ca­tion sys­tem to fa­cil­i­tate joint­man­ship. The Min­is­ter also stressed on the need to keep the net­work se­cure.

The DCN is a strate­gic, ex­clu­sive, se­cure and state-of-the-art com­mu­ni­ca­tion net­work. Im­ple­men­ta­tion of DCN is a proof of strength of the In­dian in­dus­try and has reaf­firmed the em­pha­sis of the gov­ern­ment on ‘Make in In­dia’ pro­gramme.

The DCN is a ma­jor step to­wards en­sur­ing net­work-cen­tric­ity across the three Ser­vices, In­te­grated De­fence Staff and Strate­gic Forces Com­mand. The net­work pro­vides con­verged voice, data and video ser­vices to the three Ser­vices based on se­cured sys­tem with ad­e­quate re­dun­dancy.

The event was at­tended by the Chair­man Chiefs of Staff Com­mit­tee and Chief of the Air Staff Air Chief Mar­shal Arup Raha, Chief of the Army Staff Gen­eral Dal­bir Singh, Chief of the Naval Staff Ad­mi­ral Su­nil Lanba and se­nior of­fi­cers from the three Ser­vices
