Navy creates new post for network-centric operatio
New Delhi: Against the backdrop of increasing role of satellites in modern warfare, the Navy has created a new post of Assistant Chief of Naval Staff (Communications, Space and Network Centric Operations) at its headquarters here.
"On June 1, Rear Admiral Kishan K Pandey took over as the first incumbent of the newly created post of ACNS (CSNCO) at the Integrated Headquarters of Ministry of Defence (Navy)," it said in a release.
The creation of the new post is a step in the process to migrate from a "platform-centric Navy" to a "network-enabled Navy", the release said.
It said the step is in tandem with the Navy`s plans to seamlessly integrate all combat platforms and terrestrial nodes through state-of-the art communications and space systems towards network-centric operations.
In addition to making platforms and infrastructure for network centricity, the Navy has also made organisational changes to create and efficiently manage the transition to seamless network-centric capabilities.
For nearly five years, Rear Admiral Pandey has been spearheading various prestigious projects at the Directorate of Naval Signals related to building the critical network- centric capabilities such as communications including space-based communications, networks and electronic warfare.
