BACKGROUND

The changing global security scenario and rapid technological developments in the past two decades have altered the nature of conflict. Conventional wars between the standing armed forces of nations are unlikely in the future. Hybrid warfare, characterized by low intensity conflicts, insurgencies and terrorism will be more prevalent. Use of all-weather, day and night surveillance devices has resulted in a high degree of battlefield transparency. Armed forces that possess superior intelligence gathering and analyzing capabilities will have a marked advantage over their adversaries.
