Alliance Mantra






With the Prime Minister's clarion call for Atmanirbhar Bharat, there has been a renewed emphasis on building indigenous capabilities and modernising the infrastructure of defence technology. Consistent efforts are being made to implement reforms in the defence sector, increase defence production, develop new technology, and give technology upgrades and modernization significant roles.

This is considered vital because the Armed Forces and defence capabilities of nations around the world face significant challenges in an increasingly threatening environment. To stay ahead, they must harness the power of technology and innovation to secure the future military edge and meet the challenges of today and tomorrow.

Today's defence strategies rely on the ability of decision-makers to collect, compile, sort, analyse, and share vast amounts of information. This is due to the fact that the ability to comprehend, adapt, and respond to threats at tactical speeds can determine success or failure, from the boardroom to the battlefield. Defence organisations across the world are benefiting from the productivity, connectivity, security, agility and cost-cutting benefits that a software-defined digital foundation delivers.

Join us at National DefTech Summit 2022 to learn about building a digital foundation to create, run, manage, connect, and intrinsically secure and protect any application on any device. Also find out how next generation technologies such as artificial intelligence and machine learning, are modernising and innovating various aspects of India's defence strategy.
