Energy effectivity of defence programs and discipline formations can assist scale back the variety of troops which are required to help the troopers serving on the frontline, mentioned Vice Army Chief Lt Gen CP Mohanty on Friday.
“It is imperative that all future force requirements and new systems being inducted in the Indian Army are evaluated for their energy efficiency,” he mentioned at a webinar organised by suppose tank CENJOWS.
The Army must purpose for power effectivity by way of renewable sources, changing its legacy transport fleet, advance its thermal and energy navy applied sciences, and discover wi-fi transmission of power at ahead areas, Mohanty famous.
He mentioned power effectivity can act as a pressure multiplier.
“This (energy efficiency) will also have a critical impact on making us resource surplus by reducing our long-term energy costs and thus enhancing our fiscal envelope for modernisations and capability enhancement,” he famous.
The Army should additionally have a look at creating and diffusion of modelling, simulation and different analytical wargaming instruments, he mentioned.
This ought to be completed to scale back dependence on power heavy firing practices, mass motion, struggle manoeuvre and joint workout routines with troops, he added.
