Case for a Joint Communication Command for the Indian Armed Forces

• Modern warfare which is essentially net centric will arguably turn completely net dependant in the near future. • Recently a tri service network overlay (Defence Communication Network – [DCN]) has been created at the apex level as a step towards integration.

• However, existing organizations, processes and networks do not lend to tri-service communication integration and status quo may result in further silo based development in future.

• Incompatible communication is arguably the first and primary barrier to integration, especially at the operational and tactical levels. • Is there a case to suggest that the first aspect to be given a thrust towards jointness should be communications?

• A new Defence Cyber Agency under the HQ IDS and headed by a Major General or equivalent rank officer is in the process of being established.

• Positive developments are also expected in the creation of the Chief of Defence Staff/Permanent Chairman Chiefs of Staff Committee, Joint Operational Commands, Special Forces Command and Aerospace Command.

• It is in this context that the creation of a Joint Communication Command (JCC) is being proposed as a part of the formalization of structures desired for joint war fighting.
