Bengaluru: Indian defence forces are all set to get a boost as India will install 5G technology, artificial technology and unmanned vehicles across the three wings of the Indian armed forces.   

What this means is that India will match US and China in this regard. 

This will also help India in anticipating the moves by its opponents. 

“Armed forces also will need to migrate to 5G network considering the use of unmanned vehicles and AI in future. The ministry will take necessary steps to take forward 5G connectivity with relevant use cases,” Ministry of Defence secretary Ajay Kumar was quoted by the Economic Times.

The website added that the US Department of Defence had revealed in October last year that it would spend $600 million for experiments on 5G and for testing purposes at certain military sites.

This followed China’s heavy investment in AI, under-sea cables along with quantum computing to instill 5G in numerous defence applications, Swarajya notes.
