India has developed an indigenous tactical battlefield command, control, communication and surveillance system which is in the process of being validated in army exercises, according to Lt Gen S Pattabhiraman, the new vice chief of the Army staff.

"We have developed a new TAC C3I system, comparable to any western army and this has already been validated during war games conducted by the Western Army Command," Pattabhiraman told reporters soon after assuming charge in New Delhi.

He said with the development of the new generation system, army battlefield command and control as well as communication and surveillance system would now be more secure and less susceptible to outside jamming.

He said the new system would be further tested during the forthcoming series of war games in the Thar desert for its full validation and induction into the armed forces.
