Excerpts from Captain’s Log

The submarine world is now undergoing some of the fundamental changes it has witnessed in the last 40 years and there are signs that those changes may be the biggest, since the order was first given to "take her down". New technologies are producing capabilities long known to be possible, but not practical.

With the introduction of superior weapons & sensors, powerful combat suites, capability to launch ballistic missiles, enhanced submerged autonomy delivered by AIP system & lithium-ion-battery; a conventional submarine has entered the performance domain of a nuclear platform. This hybrid breed is equally stealthier and potent like its atomic cousin.

Likewise, shallow water attack submarines have also gained prominence in the littoral warfare. In term of operational deployment, these boats can undertake full spectrum of typical submarine missions. Owing to less tonnage, their acoustic, thermal and magnetic signatures are also hard to detect by anti-submarine forces.

History has, nevertheless, shown that submarine warfare is something that hinges on the spirit of crews sealed for months in an atmosphere of easy informality, close camaraderie, and iron self-discipline. It comes from intense, highly technical training and experience at sea. It demands consistent efforts in analyzing threats and adaptation to the evolving technologies.

Already, the strategic alliance amongst India, France and United States (INFRUS) is resonating serious implications with long-term effects on the maritime security of regional navies. Remaining oblivious to future threats & challenges is likely to raise perils. Hence, an effective response to counter this phenomenal shift is to be realized. Lest we forget; “Time, Tide & Technology wait for none”.
