HYDERABAD (PTI): Futuristic Information Communication Technology (ICT) will be the backbone for Network Centric Warfare, according to Research Centre Imarat (RCI) Director BHVS Narayana Murthy.

"The state-of-the-art unified command, control, sensors and systems are the backbone of network centric warfare and these systems played a vital role in the latest successful flights of interceptor missiles," he said.

"DRDO has developed many high speed communication networks and devices for its missile applications. ICT will be a game changer in the future by integrated network across services," Murthy said.

He was speaking at an International Summit on 'Trends and Innovations for Next Gen ICT (TINICT-2017)' organised by Computer Society of India (CSI) in association with Research Centre Imarat (RCI), DRDO, Hyderabad on Sunday, an official statement said.

"Digital India initiatives will have a major impact on the common man and will strengthen the delivery of services and resources. It is essential for the country to establish institutes at rural areas for promoting digital literacy among masses," Murthy said.

Director General (Micro Electronic Devices & Computational Systems), DRDO G Athithan said, "With the advancements in ICT, there is a paradigm shift towards Internet of Things (IoT) which can be both useful and also with potential pitfalls if not handled properly. The need of the hour is robust cyber security measures and building trustworthy IT devices."

Telangana s IT secretary Jayesh Ranjan said, "CSI has to proactively bridge the urban and rural digital divide. We need generic apps which can impact and assist common people in their daily life. Broadband facilities have to reach every nook and corner of the country."

He further said the IT Ministry of Telangana government has taken initiatives for the benefit of farmers and will assist them with modern IT tools for better cultivation of crops and soil growth.
