Role of engineers in army

  1. 1. Role of Engineers in Army By,Paranthaman.G Manivannan
  2. 2. INDIAN ARMY• With about 1,414,000 soldiers in active service and about 1,800,000 reserve troops, the Indian Army is the worlds second largest active standing army and the largest in terms of army populace.
  3. 3. DEVELOPMENT OF INDIAN FORCES• The Indian Armed Forces is the overall unified military of the Republic of India encompassing the Indian Army, the Indian Navy, the Indian Air Force and various other inter-service institutions.• With an estimated total active force of 1,325,000 personnel,India maintains the worlds second largest armed forces.Auxiliary services include the Indian Coast Guard, the Central Paramilitary Forces (CPF) and the Strategic Forces Command. Indias official defense budget stands at $32.35 billion but the actual spending on the armed forces is estimated to be much higher than that• the Indian Armed Forces plans to have an active military space program and is currently developing a potent missile defense shield and nuclear triad capabilityIndia is moving to build a $2 billion or Rs 9,970.16 crore dedicated, highly secure and state-of-the-art optical fiber cable (OFC) network for the Army, Navy and Air Force. This will be one of the world’s largest, closed user group (CUG) networks for exclusive use by the million-plus personnel of the Indian armed forces
  4. 4. NEED FOR MODERN ENGINEERING IN COUNTER TERRORISM
  5. 5. PAKISTAN• Mother of global terrorism.• Military-ISI need continued hostility .• Sponsor terrorism / asymmetric war – LeT covert wing of ISI.• Terror infrastructure in POK intact.• Million neo-drones annually.• ISI/Let/Taliban links to Al Qaeda, insurgents in our North East incl Maoists.
  6. 6. Better weapons win• When military technology is advancing rapidly (as in 1850+), there are often significant differences between the weaponry deployed by opposing forces and the outclassed army can suffer much higher losses; it is futile and highly-dangerous to fight with obsolete weapons.• Victory depends on marginal differences in the performance of weapons deployed by the opposing forces.• The force with better weapons usually wins, and the loser suffers high losses.
  7. 7. Replacement of weapon systems• To avoid dangerous inferiority, obsolete weapons must be replaced by new designs with higher performance, to maintain adequate effectiveness against hostile nations concurrently deploying new equipment.• Replacement rates vary with - – Performance improvements provided by technology – Extra military effectiveness conferred by such improvements – Level of threat (wartime>peacetime) – National financial resources• Successive generations of weapons in a particular class achieve higher performance and have higher unit costs.
  8. 8. Military Engineering service•Design, construction and maintenance of allworks, buildings, airfields, dock installations, etc,•It was founded in 1851 to provide rear-line-engineering support to the erstwhile British IndianArmy•Motto “SARVATRA”•Those who see god in everything
  9. 9. Careers for EngineerEngineering is the backbone of the Army.It provides the practical framework andlays the logistical foundations that keepthis large organisation functioning as ahigh-performance unit. Whether you’reproviding theoretical expertise or activelyinvolved in building and maintaining keyinfrastructures, your role as an Engineerinvolves working with cutting edgetechnology and hardware to improve livesin some of the world’s hardest hit regions.As challenges go, they don’t come muchbigger.
  10. 10. Construction DivisionIn war, Combat Engineersprovide mobility to ownforces by constructingbridges, tracks andhelipads; on the otherhand the Corps denies thesame to the enemy bycreating obstacles such aslaying mine-fields anddemolition of bridges.
