  • Originally, the Indian army was formed under the British rule on April 1, 1895 and was called as British Indian Army.

Indian Army’s Training To Now Include ‘Mixed Martial Arts’        

  • Along with fundamental skills like firing, physical endurance and battlecraft, Army soldiers will now also learn a form of `mixed martial arts’ as well. The 12-lakh force has launched a ‘unique and standardized’ unarmed combat drill called the Army Martial Arts Routine (AMAR).
  • The first batch of 99 instructors for AMAR has successfully undergone five weeks of training at the Army Institute of Physical Training at Pune. “There will be an initial pool of 700 such instructors, who in turn will teach at the officers’ training academies and different regimental centres for jawans’.
  • The AMAR programme was announced by General Manoj Pande in the run-up to the Army Day on January 15, who said it will help soldiers not just physically, but also mentally.
  • But such a programme in the era of long standoff weapons, smart bombs, drones, electronic warfare and hypersonic missiles? While the Army did not link AMAR to heightened tensions along the 3,488-km Line of Actual Control, it comes in the backdrop of frequent violent physical clashes between Indian and Chinese troops, with the latter often armed with nail-studded rods, spiked clubs and batons in what resembles medieval combat.
  • “Soldiers need to be prepared across all basic skills of war-fighting, which can often throw up surprises and challenges. These include non-kinetic means like hand-to-hand combat situations in conventional, non-conventional and military operations other than war,” another officer said.
  • Boxing and wrestling are prominent sports in the Army, while some regiments also have their own version of martial arts. “Some Madras Regiment soldiers, for instance, are adept in the ancient martial art of Kerala called Kalaripayattu. Similarly, Sikh troops have Gatka and Gorkha regiments have their Khukri drills. But there is no fixed training programme as such,” he said.

Startup firm IG Drones Develops India’s First 5G-enabled Drone, Skyhawk 

  • Startup firm IG Drones, which was born out of the Veer Surendra Sai University of Technology campus in Odisha’s Sambalpur has developed a 5G-enabled drone that is capable of vertical take-off and landing. As it’s a VTOL (Vertical Take-off and Landing), it can be operated from any terrain without the need for a conventional runway.
  • The drone named Skyhawk can be used in defence and medical applications, among other sectors. The drone can carry a 10 kg payload and has an endurance of around five hours.
  • With Telecom Service Providers (TSPs) providing 5G services in the country, these drones can be controlled with much more precision and can be controlled from the command centre directly rather than being on the field.
  • With the addition of Artificial intelligence and thermal imaging capabilities, the drones can be used in monitoring border intrusion and also during regular patrolling by the defence forces.
  • It is IP67 rated and can be controlled via a combination of NavIC + GPS navigational satellites which remain connected in the upper range of 50 to 60 in case of failsafe activation.
  • The drone is also capable of operating through satellites in case an internet link is not available.

DRDO Tests HSTDV from Kalam Island off Odisha Coast                        

  • India has successfully flight tests Hypersonic Technology Demonstrator Vehicle from Kalam Island off Odisha coast. Developed by DRDO , the technology will help produce long-range cruise missiles upon which DRDO plans to develop weaponized version of Hypersonic weapons.
  • HSTDV is an unmanned scramjet demonstration aircraft that can achieve a velocity greater than five times the speed of sound or Mach-5 or 6115 KM per hour. In the successful mission on Monday, the test flight achieved a speed 6-times greater than the speed of sound or Mach-6.
  • Hypersonic weapons are basically of two types. One, hypersonic cruise missiles that are powered by high-speed, air-breathing engines or “scramjets” during their entire flight. And two, hypersonic glide vehicles that are launched atop ballistic missiles before gliding to their targets at speeds over Mach 5.
  • Hypersonic weapons pose a challenge to the current missile and air defence systems due to their enormous speed and manoeuvrability, both vertically and horizontally, as well as low altitudes of flight.
  • The Indian armed forces already have the conventional ramjet-powered BrahMos supersonic cruise missiles, which fly at Mach 2.8 speed, developed jointly with Russia. Their strike range has been enhanced from the original 290-km to 450-km now. But while ramjet engines operate well at supersonic speeds around Mach 3, their efficiency drops at hypersonic speeds.
