It is surprising that we are not discussing the so called "farmers" agitations going on in Delhi Borders. It is a major BIF efforts to revive Khalistan terror. The reaction of the GoI is quite strange to say the least.

As part of a high-level defence engagement with Sri Lanka, India earlier this month provided the country with 341 Indra Radar spares worth 200 Sri Lankan million. The spares will be used to provide support to the four Indra MK-11 air surveillance radars gifted to India by Sri Lankan Air Force in 2011.


India has also completed the annual life extension checks of 54 shoulder-launched surface to air IGLA missiles of the Sri Lankan Air force. This coincided with the handing over of the spare parts.

The development comes even as under its SAGAR vision - Security and Growth for All in the Region, India has been reaching out to many Indian ocean countries. November of 2020 saw India-Sri Lanka-Maldives NSA level trilateral with focus on more increased cooperation amid challenges like piracy, maritime security and counter-terror.


Saar, it seems the report has it backwards. India gifted the indra radars to Sri Lanka, i would say.

A link to this site was posted in the Armd Discussion thread because the author did an economic analysis of T-90 vs Arjun order. I found many other highly readable snippets and two podcasts with an individual who served in Indian intelligence agencies. It's worth listening to.

There's also a recap of what happened to Rabinder Singh after he defected to the U.S.

DRDO's 'Sindhu Netra' surveillance satellite deployed in space, will help to monitor Indian Ocean Region.

In a boost for the country's surveillance capabilities to monitor activities of both military warships and merchant shipping in the Indian Ocean Region (IOR), the 'Sindhu Netra' satellite developed by a team of young scientists from Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) was successfully deployed in space on Sunday.

The satellite was launched using the Indian Space Research Organisation's (ISRO) PSLV-C51 which took off from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikota in Andhra Pradesh.

The Sindhu Netra satellite has been developed by the young scientists of the DRDO and is capable of automatically identifying the warships and merchant ships operating in the IOR. The satellite has also started communicating with the ground systems, government sources told ANI.

The satellite, if required, can also help in carrying out surveillance in specific areas such as the South China Sea or the pirate-infested areas near the Gulf of Aden and the African coast, the sources said.

They added that the Sindhu Netra is one of the first in the series of satellites that would help the nation in enhancing its surveillance capabilities on land in areas such as the Ladakh region with China and the border areas with Pakistan.

Seeking to keep a closer eye on the activities of the Chinese military both near the Indian territory as well as in its depth areas all along the 4,000 kilometre Line of Actual Control (LAC), the Indian security agencies feel there is a requirement of four to six dedicated satellites which can help them keep a check on the adversary's moves.

Along with the setting up of the Defence Space Agency, the government also created a defence space research organisation to look after the ability to protect space assets from being attacked by adversaries there. The space arm of the defence forces would also be bolstered significantly in near future.

India launches real-time vessel tracking and seafarers’ help system.

India launched a real-time vessel tracking system that can help seafarers and fishermen in the times of need. Apart from tracking Indian vessels globally, it can also track foreign vessels within 1,000-km of India’s coastline.
