Pan Indian Army Satellite Communication Exercise exskylight Was Recently Conducted – Exskylight: Army Tests Space Based Assets, Focuses on Military Communications and Electronic Warfare

hear the news

The Indian Army has tested all its space-based assets to ensure operational readiness in a five-day satellite communication exercise. Defense sources said on Friday that the army has also completed a study on communications, cyber and electromagnetic effects reported during the Russo-Ukraine war. The exercise, named ‘Skylight’, lasted from July 25 to 29. Army is using services of several satellites belonging to ISRO
According to sources, the army is using the services of several satellites belonging to the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO). Stationary terminals, transportable vehicular terminals, man-portable and small form factor man-pack terminals were tested during the exercise. According to sources, the Indian Army is closely studying the ongoing war in Ukraine so that lessons related to communication technology can be drawn from it. In this, the entire focus of the army is on military communication and electronic warfare. The Indian Army has learned from this war that it is extremely important to have a tactical communication system operating in enemy territory with a suitable backhaul.

According to sources, the study also revealed the effectiveness of reliable satellite communication. As afforded by ‘Starlink’. On this basis, the army is engaged in developing ‘small sized hand-held secure satellite phones’ along with industry and academia. 100 per cent satellite communication system was activated to ensure faster operation of hi-tech satellite systems and to practice many sudden incidents.

Focus on developing encryption resistant methods against quantum computer attacks
Defense establishment sources said on Friday that the Indian Army is focusing on developing encryption-resistant methods against quantum computer attacks to ensure the confidentiality and security of its information. He said that traditional cryptographic systems can be completely or partially cracked in minutes with the help of quantum computers. He said that such military capability can be a major weapon to threaten the sensitive systems of any country, thereby threatening national sovereignty in many ways.

Therefore, there is an urgent need to replace traditional cryptography with quantum resistant cryptographic methods. He said the Indian Army is focusing on leveraging quantum computing to improve information privacy. It is actively collaborating with industry and academia to develop quantum computing applications for communications and cryptography.
