Magazine Description

In this issue

Geopolitics' April 2018 issue focuses on DefExpo. In his interview DRDO Chairman, Dr S Christopher, highlights the importance of quality scientific and technological manpower for making the "Make in India" theme a success story. Does India have enough quality scientific/technological manpower to develop its industrial base? The fact is that we do not spend enough on R&D to retain or attract the best talent. The issue also looks at how countries either collaborate to build systems or include a range of components from other nations to produce weapons and how after after decades of importing the majority of its primary weapons - from jet fighters and tanks to rifles and warships - India is finally on the cusp of becoming a producer of big-ticket weapon systems. The issue also has an insight into the defence acquisition process pointing out that while there are structural and procedural inadequacies in the acquisition process of defence items, it will be unrealistic to expect any structural improvements in the near future, especially if the ministry continues to follow the past practice of merely tinkering with the existing disjointed system built around the capital acquisition wing. Plus: All our regular features.
