The memorandum of understanding (MoU) provides for the setting up of a technology incubation forum to jointly work on developing new technologies.

“The Technology Incubation Forum (ITF) reflects the joint vision of the Indian Navy and Bharat Electronics Limited towards innovative and creative thinking and fostering the development of emerging technologies,” the defence ministry said.

“The broad charter of the TIF includes technology development in the domain of weapons and sensors, information technology and emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence and machine learning, quantum computing, autonomous platforms/robotics, image processing and cognitive radio,” it added.

The ministry said the TIF will spearhead the mission-mode development of deployable products under the government’s “Aatmanirbhar Bharat” (self-reliant India) initiative with the involvement of industry, academia and start-ups.

In Chandimandir, Gen Rawat commended the formation for their efforts to ensure force preservation and at the same time stepping forward to provide support in terms of establishing COVID hospitals at Chandigarh, Patiala and Faridabad, the Army said in a statement.

He also complimented the force for providing paramedical staff in aid of civil hospitals and extending assistance in vaccination of common citizens.

“He stressed upon the need to focus on training hard and remain vigilant to thwart the nefarious designs of our adversaries. He emphasied that all ranks must keep themselves abreast with the latest trends in information technology, emerging cyber threats and countermeasures,” the Army said.
