CDS says Indian private firms must step in to provide cutting-edge space tech to armed forces

The Indian private industry must step in to provide highly advanced space technologies and to boost operational capabilities of the Indian armed forces, Chief of Defence Staff General Bipin Rawat said on Monday. 

CDS General Rawat was speaking at the launch ceremony of the Indian Space Association, which is a space sector industry body consisting of companies such as Bharti Airtel, Larsen and Tourbo, Agnikul, Dhruva Space, and Kawa Space. 

“Space and cyber domains have become critical to our ability to undertake operations across the spectrum, both in peace and conflict. The armed forces look forward to the Indian industry to provide products and innovations and cutting-edge technologies towards war winning capabilities,” he said. 

The privatisation of the space industry will propel the space industry into the future as the central driver of nation building, he added. 

“And apart from this, space situational awareness, and protection of our space-based assets have become important domains,” General Rawat said.
