Indian Navy to Train Vietnamese Naval Personnel

The cooperation between Vietnam and India is expanding steadily as the two countries broaden their defense ties.

Namely, the Vietnamese Navy asked its Indian counterpart to train its naval personnel on Russian-built kilo-class submarines, as reported by The Asian Age.

Russia handed over the first of six Russian-built Kilo class submarines, named Ha Noi, to Vietnam on November 7.  The sub was ordered under a project signed in 2009 in Saint Petersburg.

The Indian Navy also wants to sell the BrahMos supersonic missile to Vietnam.

The missile can be launched from submarines, ships, aircraft or land. It is a joint venture between the Republic of India’s Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO) and Russian Federation’s NPO Mashinostroeyenia that have together formed BrahMos Aerospace Private Limited.

What is more, the Indian Navy had earlier been given the privilege to drop anchor at the Vietnamese Nha Trang port during a goodwill visit, becoming one of the few to be able to do that.

The cooperation could also be extended to shipbuilding industry, claim the local media.

Naval Mission Systems Technology

Integrating Naval Assets to Ensure Enhanced Maritime Operations and Support.

Navies are constantly looking at how the collection and dissemination of data from marine helicopters, UAVs, radars and shore based sensors through C2 systems can be improved to produce an accurate, clear, and all-encompassing picture of the maritime theatre for allied forces.

The complexity associated with effectively coordinating the variety of operations of these systems means that interoperability between all systems, divisions, and nations is of paramount importance. Therefore, SMi’s Naval Mission Systems Technology Conference will explore the strategies and technologies required to develop next generation capability in this vital area of national defence.

The expert speaker panel includes: Italian Navy, U.S. Navy, NATO Modelling and Simulation Center of Excellence (M & S COE), BAAINBw, The Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl), University College London and many more.
