SP's LandForces - - NEWS IN BRIEF -

The two day Uni­fied Com­man­ders’ Con­fer­ence was held on July 10-11, 2017, at New Delhi. The con­fer­ence, which was at­tended by the RM, RRM, NSA, Ser­vice Chiefs and se­nior dig­ni­taries from Tri-Ser­vices Es­tab­lish­ments and the Min­istry of De­fence dis­cussed all rel­e­vant is­sues in­clud­ing func­tional and op­er­a­tional syn­ergy, en­hance­ment of train­ing cur­ricu­lum in Armed Forces Train­ing In­sti­tutes among oth­ers.

Ear­lier dur­ing the con­fer­ence, the De­fence Sec­re­tary ap­prised the au­di­ence that the De­fence Cy­ber & Space Agen­cies and Spe­cial Op­er­a­tions Di­vi­sion will soon be­come a re­al­ity.

On Day Two of the Con­fer­ence, one of the high­lights was the pre­sen­ta­tion on ‘Big Data to­wards In­sight­ful De­ci­sion Mak­ing’, by the pres­ti­gious Col­lege of De­fence Man­age­ment. This con­cept has al­ready been in­tro­duced in train­ing cur­ricu­lum of se­lect se­nior mil­i­tary of­fi­cers.

The Joint cur­ricu­lum in the pres­ti­gious De­fence Ser­vices Staff Col­lege, one of the old­est Tri-Ser­vices In­sti­tu­tions in the world, has been in­creased to over 60 per cent, thus paving the way for an en­hanced shared per- spec­tive in ex­e­cut­ing joint op­er­a­tions.

With the pur­pose of mak­ing the mil­i­tary phys­i­cal train­ing even more sci­en­tific, a de­ci­sion to in­cor­po­rate sports medicine in the method­ol­ogy of train­ing cadets, re­cruits and com­bat sol­diers was also taken. The au­di­ence was also in­formed of the de­ci­sion to in­tro­duce B Tech in the Na­tional De­fence Academy which will fur­ther the tech­no­log­i­cal thresh­old of fu­ture mil­i­tary lead­ers.

In his clos­ing re­marks, Chair­man COSC and Chief of the Naval Staff, Ad­mi­ral Su­nil Lanba stressed on the sig­nif­i­cance of syn­er­gised ex­e­cu­tion of op­er­a­tional plans and en­cour­aged all to en­sure rig­or­ous cost ben­e­fit anal­y­sis while cre­at­ing any new struc­tures. Af­ter a fruit­ful dis­cus­sion on sev­eral other func­tional Tri-Ser­vices is­sues, Lt Gen­eral Satish Dua, the Chief of In­te­grated Staff, thanked the gath­er­ing for ac­tively par­tic­i­pat­ing in the Joint Ser­vices de­lib­er­a­tions.
