General Anil Chauhan, the Chief of Defence Staff (CDS), stated on Friday in NEW DELHI that the development of a National Security Strategy (NSS) should take into account shifting global geopolitics.

“International geopolitics is in flux,” General Anil Chauhan stated, “and the national security strategy should aim to absorb the changes in such a way that it meets the challenges and exploits the opportunities.”

The CDS also mentioned that the Armed Forces are spending money on technology, which is important as India continues to restructure its warfighting structure into theatres.

At the DRDO Directors’ Conclave, an annual gathering of DRDO, on Friday in New Delhi, the CDS gave the opening address. In order to tackle the new difficulties, General Chauhan emphasised the necessity to perform, reform, transform, educate, and conform.

In order to advance and defend its national interests from external and internal threats, India does not have a national security strategy, which is a comprehensive and overarching document for a country. It gives guidance on how to use different national power instruments, including diplomatic, informational, military, and economic ones.

He said dominance in technology and tactics is now required, and the Indian Armed Forces are investing in new technologies to win engagements. He was referring to the technological requirements arising from theaterisation.

General Anil Chauhan emphasised the values of jointness, integration, and theaterisation, stating that the idea of theaterisation is a fundamental change that is on the horizon in terms of national security.

“It is one of the most extensive modifications that have been undertaken since independence. This journey can only begin if the proper steps are first taken in the direction of jointness and integration. According to General Anil Chauhan, theaterization entails developing tri service theater-specific institutions for efficient reaction across the entire spectrum of warfare.

As it combines the distinct capabilities of the services through integrated processes and structures, integration in the physical domain seeks to provide a multiplier effect, according to the CDS, in order to improve the capacity for waging wars.

In his inauguration presentation, Dr. Samir V. Kamat, Secretary, Department of Defence R&D, and Chairman of DRDO, emphasised the evolving nature of warfare and the criticality inherent in it. In line with Atmanirbharta and Make in India, the goals of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, he emphasised the need for reform and perspective transformation.

Six technical sessions, each followed by a panel discussion, will be held as part of the conclave to explore various topics related to the theme “Redefining Role of DRDO in the Wake of New Government Policies and Emerging Scenarios”.

The two-day colloquium was convened in response to Rajnath Singh, the defence minister, reviewing the outputs of numerous Chintan Shivir (brainstorming session) meetings. Top DRDO representatives, such as Directors General of several corporate and technological clusters, Directors of DRDO Laboratories, Directors of DRDO Headquarters, and Integrated Financial Advisors (IFAs), are present.

Rajnath Singh, the defence minister, oversaw a day-long meeting of the Ministry of Defence (MoD) at the beginning of this month. It had come after separate brainstorming sessions held by each Department of the MoD last month. In separate brainstorming sessions, the Department of Defence (DoD), Department of Defence Production (DDP), Department of Military Affairs (DMA), Department of Ex-Servicemen Welfare (DESW), and Defence Research & Development Organisation (DRDO) discussed important issues and ways to increase productivity.
