NEW DELHI (PTI): Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) would be testing some of the new military platforms during the Indian Army's six day-long ongoing exercise 'Vijayee Bhava' in northern Rajasthan.

The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) would also be testing its satellite capabilities to connect to a real-time war-like situation.

"ISRO is keenly watching the efficacy and robustness of its satellite down-links for the field forces," an army spokesperson said here Tuesday.

Western Army Commander, Lieutenant General S R Ghosh Tuesday reviewed the six day-long exercise and briefed the operational commander.

Over 50,000 troops are taking part in the exercise, which is being conducted by Chandigarh-based Western Army Command.

Army is putting into test some of the new concepts derived from its transformational studies carried by it in the last few years.

The purpose of the exercise is to transform Army into a lean, agile and enabled force ready to tackle the developing security situation in today's scenario.

The concept of dedicated Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) units would also be validated during the exercise to enhance operational situational awareness.
