NEED FOR NETWORK OF DEFENCE ACQUISITIONS, TECHOLOGY CUM R&D UNIVERSITIES IN INDIA

The Hindu article “Research in frontier areas of science and technologyon IITM’s achievements is great, we do need to celebrate what we have. But there is so much scope for more.  China has whole Universities dedicated to many of these specializations, and the US has a Defence Acquisitions University which teaches you the ropes for defence acquisitions.

And just look at the courses on offer!!! I am salivating!  Mind boggling!  This is the kind of expertise that leads to well founded decisions in defence acquisitions. Of course, the US has a different approach to acquisitions, it starts with R & D, and then development and then acquisitions. We OTOH start with acquisitions, we don’t start with indigenous production processes at all!
