    Damn you Environment Ministry!!!!!
    These guys were not on time to stop the work of LAVASA city which is built by changing the path of the river and cutting the forest.
    Now these guys show their faces even before testing a missile

    Navy to procure integrated combat system for Marine Commandos
    Published November 10, 2011

    SOURCE: PTI

    Strengthening its capabilities to carry out special operations, the Navy is planning to procure advanced Integrated Combat System (ICS) for its elite Marine Commandos (MARCOS).

    The Navy wants the ICS for effective command, control and information sharing to maximise capabilities of individuals and groups of the MARCOS– the elite special operations unit, while engaging enemies.

    “We want the ICS to provide enhanced capabilities such as tactical awareness and fighting ability in hostile environment and a network which can enable Group Commanders to remotely monitor and control operations,” Navy officials told said here.

    They said the ICS would help in integrating an individual sailor’s capability of day and night surveillance, ballistic protection, communication and
    firepower through an integrated network at individual and group level.

    Initiating the procurement process through a Request for Information (RFI), Navy’s Directorate of Special Operations and Diving has sought details from global vendors about the ICS, which should have gear for both individual and group uses.

    The individual equipment required by the Navy in the ICS includes light weight helmets, head-mounted displays, tactical and soft ballistic vests along with communication equipment.

    The group-level gear requirements include command and control and surveillance systems along with high speed communication equipment.

    The Navy wants the integrated surveillance devices to have sight for the sniper, laser range finder and long range thermal imager (medium and long range) and near IR laser pointer for a combat group to undertake surveillance, reconnaissance and targeting.

    It also wants that the ICS should be compatible with all the advanced assault rifles and close-quarter combat weapons which are used by elite troops.

    The Navy has recently started inducting the Israeli Tavor 21 Assault Rifles for the MARCOS.

    As per the RFI, the Navy wants the electronic devices and sub parts of the ICS to be operable in tropical, cold, desert, marine and coastal climates along with being waterproof.

    After gathering information from the interested vendors, the Navy will issue a global Request for Proposal (RFP) soon.

    Navy foils pirate attack off Gulf of Aden

    Mumbai: The Indian Navy patrolling the Gulf of Aden on Thursday thwarted a multi-boat attack by sea brigands on merchant vessels, apprehending 26 Somali pirates and confiscating arms and ammunition, in the fifth successful anti-piracy operation since September. At 9.25 am on Thursday, navy personnel aboard warship INS Sukanya spotted a group of five suspicious boats speedily approaching the merchant vessels of her group.

    “The warship immediately altered (its direction) towards the suspicious vessels and challenged them. On seeing the resolve evident in the warship’s action and probably mindful of the reputation for resolute action that the Indian Navy justly enjoys in such deployments, the pirate skiffs reversed course and tried to flee the area,” Captain Manohar Nambiar, Chief Public Relations Officer, Defence, said.

    While two of them managed to escape, INS Sukanya successfully intercepted the remaining three boats and, in a well-practiced and professionally executed boarding-and-search action, nabbed 26 Somali pirates with six AK 47 rifles, 12 magazines and about 300 rounds of ammunition. This is the fifth successful anti-piracy operation conducted by INS Sukanya in the course of her ongoing patrol mission in the Gulf of Aden that commenced in September, the Navy said.

    INS Sukanya, currently deployed on anti-piracy patrols in the Gulf of Aden under the operational control of the Western Naval Command, was escorting a group of five merchant vessels through the Internationally Recognised Transit Corridor when the incident happened. The timely operation by INS Sukanya resulted, once again, in foiling the pirates’ attempt to attack merchant vessels transiting the busy sea lane through which over nearly $100 billion worth India’s external trade passes each year, Captain Nambiar said.

    In their five operations so far, the personnel on board the warship have confiscated 14 AK-47 Rifles, 31 magazines and 923 rounds of ammunition, he said. Indian Navy is part of the international effort to ensure the safety and freedom of seaborne trade in this high-risk stronghold of modern-day piracy.

    February trial for naval air defence missile
    Published November 16, 2011


    SOURCE: IANS
    [​IMG]
    India will conduct trials before February next year of a 70-km long-range surface-to-air missile or LR-SAM for the Indian Navy.

    The missile will have the capability to intercept incoming enemy cruise missiles and combat jets targeting its warships at sea. India has a joint venture for this missile with Israel.

    “This missile will be test-fired in January or February next year in Israel,” senior officials of the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) told reporters here.

    The missile will be ready for induction into the navy soon after the next series of tests.

    After the first series of tests in Israel, the missile trials will also be held in India.

    The Indian Army too is looking at a variant of this missile to meet its requirement for a medium-range surface-to-air air defence missile with a 70-km range.

    India is developing AIP technology for Submarines
    Published November 29, 2011

    SOURCE: PIB
    [​IMG]
    The DRDO proposes to develop a technology to reduce vulnerability of the Submarines available with the Indian Navy. Naval Material Research Laboratory (NMRL), Ambernath, under Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) is progressing a technology demonstration project “Development of Land-based Prototype for Air Independent Propulsion (AIP)” for submarine propulsion.

    Vulnerability of a submarine can be reduced by increasing its underwater endurance (dived conditions). Normally diesel electric generators are used to charge the batteries that provide propulsion power when the submarine is in dived conditions. To run the generators the submarine has to surface for taking in air and throwing out the exhaust. Using AIP system, submarine can charge the batteries without surfacing.

    The full scale operations of such System is likely to be demonstrated by 2015.

    This information was given by Defence Minister Shri AK Antony in written reply to Shri Dhruva Narayana in Lok Sabha today.

    Sea trials soon of India’s indigenous n-submarine
    Published December 2, 2011

    SOURCE : IANS
    [​IMG]
    The sea trials of India’s indigenous nuclear submarine INS Arihant are scheduled in a few months from now and it is likely to be inducted into the navy by the end of 2012, when it will lurk in the deep seas awaiting its prey.

    Indian Navy chief Admiral Nirmal Verma said at the force’s annual press conference Friday ahead of Navy Day on Dec 4 that the process of readying the nuclear-powered submarine was ‘on track’.

    ‘By and large we are on track. A firm date can be given when we go for sea trials that will hopefully happen in a few months from now,’ Verma said when he was asked about his last Navy Day promise that INS Arihant will go out on high seas patrols by 2012-end.

    India had launched the 6,000-tonne submarine into the waters at Visakhapatnam Naval Dockyard on July 26 in 2009. Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and his wife Gursharan Kaur were present on the occassion.

    INS Arihant has been built under the navy’s advanced technology vessel (ATV) programme at a cost of $2.9 billion. The vessel is critical for India possessing the capability to launch nuclear weapons from an underwater platform.

    With India’s declared ‘no first use’ policy on nuclear weapons, the country’s weapons system must survive a first strike for retaliation. To that effect, INS Arihant’s primary weapon is stealth as it will be able to lurk in ocean depths of half a kilometre or more and fire missiles from under the sea.

    The submarine is powered by an 85 MW nuclear reactor and can acquire surface speeds of 22 to 28 kmph or 12 to 15 knots, apart from a submerged speed of 44 kmph or 24 knots.

    With a crew of 95, it will be armed with torpedoes and missiles including 12 ballistic missiles. Four more nuclear-powered submarines of this class have already got government’s nod, adding to navy’s underwater combat potential in the years to come.

    On the safety of the nuclear submarine, the navy chief said there was a requirement of a regulatory authority and Baba Atomic Research Centre will play a major role in this.

    He said the issue was not about nuclear safety while the vessel is at port but while it is at sea and hence the modalities for that and basing of specialist on board the vessel are under consideration.
