India is looking at gearing up its defense technology as the country plans to include IT giants like TCS, HCL, Wipro, Tech Mahindra to develop technologies that could benefit the defense
These companies are not known for their involvement in defense nor have they expressed their desires out in the open but as Rajnath Singh, Defense Minister of India, announced an import ban on defense items, there is a high probability that this can be a good opportunity for IT companies to expand and look for a wider horizon.
To be on par with countries like China, Russia, and the United States, India is planning to catch up to the level and if these companies were to support in this ambition, in no time India will be standing shoulder to shoulder with them, believe experts.
Sameer Patil from Mumbai-based thinktank Gateway House says, “This offers opportunities for Indian IT giants companies such as Tech Mahindra, Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), Wipro, and HCL Technologies, which have so far played a restricted role in the Indian military’s technological modernization.”
Over the years, the role of technology in war or war-like situations has changed. Now it is as much of war behind closed doors as it is on the field. One can ensure the safety of the military by figuring out and mastering Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, swarming drones, blockchain, and quantum computing. Most of all, advanced cyber technology blocks threats against the information and secrets of the country.
We know a lot of it due to virtual experiences that navigation satellites carry most of the work when a war is being fought on the ground. Analyzing the data by digital modules is extremely important for the efficiency of an aircraft. If IoT (Internet of Things) is implemented in the country’s defense technology, it can go a long way for the security of the country.
This is where Indian IT companies come into the picture. They can help build up the defense technology for India of India by helping to identify critical technologies. Here the nation will be benefited as these technologies will include those that have been denied to our country as a part of the International Strategic Export Controls regime: restrictions on electronics, computers, and IT covering information security.
