The first edition of this year’s Naval Commanders’ Conference is taking place in New Delhi, India, from 25 to 28 May 15.
During the Conference the Indian Chief of the Naval Staff reviews critical operational and administrative issues in the Indian Navy. The Conference comes in the wake of a high tempo campaign season for the Navy, starting with Op Neer in Maldives during December 2014, the Theatre Readiness Operational Level Exercise (TROPEX) in Jan/ Feb 2015, Op Rahat in Yemen during Mar/ Apr 2015 and the joint operation with the Coast Guard to nab drug runners off the Indian coast in Apr 2015.
Naval Commanders’ Conference is a biannual event and this edition will cover a wide spectrum of issues relating to operations, infrastructure and manpower, including operational readiness of the Commands and issues relating to coastal security. Strengthening cyber security in the Indian Navy would be another key area of discussion.
