New Delhi: The Army is working on
innovative methods to better its combat potential and has set
up 15 technology centres to help it in this endeavour, its
chief General V K Singh said here on Tuesday.

"Armed forces have been involved in innovative methods
which assist them in warfare. Fifteen technological centres
have been started which absorb the latest things on technology
and pass it on to others (formations)," he said while
inaugurating a seminar-cum-exposition here.

The seminar `Innovation - Marking a difference to the
combat potential of Indian Army` was organised by the Corps of
Electrical and Mechanical Engineers here.

"These regional centres also become the repository of
innovations that come up in that particular region," Singh
said.

Addressing the gathering, DRDO distinguished scientist
W Selvamurthy said to promote innovation, Army should enhance
the intake of officers from the technical background.

On the important technologies developed by Army`s own
personnel, EME chief Lt Gen A K S Chandele said, "Terrorists
use IEDs against security personnel in Jammu and Kashmir and
this is one area where our innovators have come up with
anti-IED devices, which are better than the imported ones."

He said innovations displayed at the seminar are
developed by Army personnel, who found better ways of using
the equipment in service or modified them.
