Indian Navy top brass reviews operational, administrative issues

NEW DELHI (PTI): The top brass of Indian Navy on Monday met here to review critical operational and administrative issues of the force and released the infrastructure development plan for the next decade.

Navy Chief Admiral R K Dhowan took stock of the operational activities of the force during the first edition of the biannual Naval Commanders' Conference, Navy sources said.

He also released the infrastructure development plan for the next decade for the Navy which details setting up of new maritime infrastructure including classified projects.

It comes in the wake of a high tempo campaign season for Navy starting with the Theatre Readiness Operational Level Exercise in January-February, 'Op Rahat' in Yemen during March-April and the joint operation with Coast Guard to nab drug-runners off the Indian coast last month.

The two-day conference will also cover a wide spectrum of issues relating to operations, infrastructure and manpower, including operational readiness of the Commands and issues relating to coastal security.

Strengthening cyber security in the Indian Navy would be another key area of discussion.

Another aspect to come up is the consolidation and strengthening of the rapidly expanding aviation arm of the Navy.

Deliberations would be held on infrastructure and manning requirements for new induction aircraft, including Unmanned Aerial Vehicles and enhancement of surveillance.

Another critical area would be the strengthening of maritime operations centres for collation and analysis of vast swathes of information from a multitude of sources to enable alacrity and effectiveness of operations in all four dimensions.
