Technology Absorption UPSC NOTE


  • The Indian Army is observing the year 2024 as the ‘Year of Technology Absorption’. 

  • This theme underscores the Army’s steadfast focus on embracing technology to transform itself so as to keep ahead of adversaries in the context of the evolving character of warfare. 

  • The absorption will be mainly in terms of disruptive technology (DT) comprising artificial intelligence, autonomous weapon systems such as drones, sensors, robotics, space technology, and hypersonic weapon systems. 

  • Several nations, led by the United States and China, have remarkable accomplishments in the field of DTs. 

  • The strategic competition and engagements in the future are going to be inevitably decided by the edge a nation possesses in absorbing these technologies

  • In military parlance, absorption implies the acquisition, adaptation and integration of technologies into existing structures called legacy systems. 

  • These cover various nuances that are usually not apparent to the uninitiated

  • The strategies that military organisations use to employ technologies will be critical in understanding their effects on the battlefield

  • Technical countermeasures in wars quickly limit the performance of new technology-enabled weapons employed by an adversary. 

  • In present battle conditions, weapon platforms such as tanks must adapt to become more survivable. 

  • This will require a change in tactics and a greater integration of different types of capabilities. 

  • With a plethora of sensors on the battlefield, it has become almost impossible to hide

  • Rather than discarding conventional platforms in favour of purely digital solutions, the technology and its attributes need to be at the centre of planning for future plans

  • An understanding of the latest technologies, their potential, and the context in which they can be utilised are essential. 

  • The absorption will have to visibly manifest itself at the unit levels, as against being controlled only at the higher levels. 

  • This democratisation in employing technology at cutting-edge levels is an imperative to usher in true transformation.
