NEW DELHI: Armed with the capability of providing real time data from multiple sites, the dedicated communication satellites for Indian Navy and Air Force will be launched in the next two years, government told the Lok Sabha today.

In a written reply to a question in the House, defence minister A K Antony said, "The Naval Satellite is planned to be launched in 2012-13... A dedicated communication satellite for Air Force is planned to be launched in 2013-2014."

The Tri-services Defence Communication Network (DCN) is being progressed as per the Defence Procurement Procedure (DPP). DCN envisages a network of optical fibre cables, satellite earth stations and transportable and portable satellite terminals with high security features, he told the House.

"The design of these systems have features that enable conduct of simultaneous real time networked operations from multiple sites to cater for contingencies and failures, as well as hardware redundancies for fail-safe operations," Antony said.

Replying to a question on testing of Pinaka Multi Barrel Rocket Launcher (MBRL) he said, "Pinaka was test fired on 28-29 March. Ten Rockets were fired. Objective of the trial was testing of fuse system."

Developed by DRDO, Pinaka weapon system has already been inducted into Service with the Indian Army raising its two regiments.

we also need dedicated parities, all the political parties are garbage and their leaders are bloody hell. no quality just barking all time. I hardly heard they say INDIA or INDIAN. see the Barak Obama always say US, People of US. and our parties congress say bhajap is this, and Rss is that and hinduism is so and so and vhp etc are dash dash dash. and bhajap will say sonia is so ni a and congress is so and so.

Bull **** yaar. Now up your level tell what India is or Indian words. we also need some mature coments like this. not always garbage dialoging showing their poor and cheap mentality.

all leaders(so called) are nothing but a cheap bloody blood drinker. value less mosquitoes.

In jungle, like do hunting and eat, then remaining are eat by fox, then parts are eat by the vultures and skelton by ZARAKH. but political leaders are such who eat these all and even not do dakar..............god save India and Indians.
