Russia expressed confidence that the long delayed concluding agreement with India on the joint production of the fifth generation fighter aircraft can be signed this year.The two countries signed an initial contract in 2010 to build the Fifth Generation Fighter Aircraft (FGFA) programme, however, they have not been able to agree to the final terms of the contract.”We are in the final stage of negotiations for the FGFA contract,” United Aircraft Corporation’s (UAC) Yuri Slyusar told the press at the ongoing Aero India airshow in Bengaluru, according to a Reuters report.The Indian RequirementsThe quibble relates to how the Indian version of the Russian-designed Sukhoi T-50 will differ from the Russian model, and over the amount of technology the Russians are willing to transfer. A Russian T-50 fighter lands at an airfield of the Sukhoi aircraft manufacturing plant in Komsomolsk-on-Amur. A new fighter aircraft seen as Russia’s response to U.S. advances in military aviation made a successful first test flight, plane maker Sukhoi said.ReutersPrime Minister Narendra Modi said on Wednesday that India was no longer satisfied with weapon deliveries or assembling, and added that transfer of technology to local companies and production within India would be a clause attached to the lucrative deals.India is expected to spend as much as $250 billion over the next decade in modernising the defence forces and the equipment.Aero India 2015″We think there is a possibility to sign the agreement within 2015. At least the Russian side think it will be done in 2015,” Slyusar said.Meanwhile, the ageing fleet of Russian-made MiGs and French Mirage fighter jets are now being replaced with India-made Sukhoi Su-30s and its upgradations.The French are eager to see the ink dry up on the contract to supply 126 Dassault Rafale, which has been stuck over Dassault unwilling to offer the necessary guarantees for localised production of the fourth generation fighter jet.Fifth Generation Fighter AircraftThe FGFA aircraft possess more advanced design and build, which equips the aircraft with significant stealth capabilities and would provide operators with deep penetration hits in enemy territory.”FGFA planes are important in terms of future capability,” Air Force Chief Arup Raha said on Thursday, at the Bangalore air show. Russian Sukhoi T-50 PAK-FA jet fighter lands after a demonstration flight at the MAKS International Aviation and Space Salon in Zhukovsky outside Moscow.ReutersRuha noted that a firm timeline for the closing of agreement was difficult to forecast.There are a total of five fifth-generation fighter jets in existence – the US-based Lockheed Martin’s F-22 Raptor and the F-35 Lightning II (the world’s most expensive defence programme ever), both combat-proven, though the F-35 has been plagued with issues.China has developed the J-11 and the J-20 FGFA, which could end up in the Pakistani fleet, who would be unable to persuade the Americans to sell them.The Russian Sukhoi T-50 forms the final name in the short list. The initial design has been agreed between the two nations in 2013, and they continue to work on the detailed design.In December, during his visit to the country, Russian President Vladmir Putin said that Russia would continue to remain India’s top defence partner.
Defence industries in India will likely gain momentum under the rule of Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman, only the second woman to hold the title in the country after Indira Gandhi, and the first to hold it full-time.Indian companies like Larsen and Toubro, Tata Power, Tata Motors, Cochin Shipyard, Bharat Electronics, Reliance Defence, Ashok Leyland and Bharat Forge have been waiting for years for India’s sizeable defence capital expenditure, Economic Times reported.But despite having many home-based defence companies, India is still one of the largest importers of defence products.Global arms sales over the last five years reached their highest level since 1990, with India being the world’s largest defence importer, according to an International Peace Research Institute report. India accounted for 13 percent of global arms imports between 2012 and 2016.India’s defence technological advancement has been clearly very slow, and if there is any war, India may not be prepared for it.However, the government is now pushing for faster and better improvement in the defence sector, propelled by surging geopolitical threats — mainly from China and Pakistan. Commerce and Industry Minister Nirmala Sitharaman returns a microphone after speaking with media at the 3rd Intersessional Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) Ministerial Meeting in Hanoi, Vietnam May 22, 2017.Reuters fileMany significant defence projects, such as making submarines, frigates, battlefield management systems, artillery guns and tactical communication systems, are still on hold and need to be executed sooner than later.Make in India under Nirmala Sitharaman With Nirmala Sitharaman now appointed defence minister, expectations of local defence manufacturing companies are high that activities will likely gather steam in the defence sector and boost the Make in India initiative of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.The Make in India programme was launched in 2015 to encourage national and multinational companies to manufacture their products in India.If the overall activities are fast-tracked, analysts say India’s defence outlay could reach $250 billion over the next 10 years.That means the 30 percent local sources rule that applies on defence orders alone would offer a minimum opportunity of $75 billion for domestic players.However, defence companies in India have not shown any growth and neither received any order so far despite the government’s Make in India initiative. Now, with a full-time minister appointed, the sector is expected to grow.”With the support of the Prime Minister, so many things have happened in the ministry like Start-up India, Make in India, etc. There is some misconception about Make in India, but it will be answered,” said Nirmala Sitharaman after her appointment.

Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global Imagine this fantasy: At your company, sensitive customer data is impenetrable. Hardware is secure. And every single IT specialist in your employ has the resources and funds to make all of this happen.Related: Expert Advice: How to Up Your Cyber SecurityBut, no, it’s time to pinch yourself and wake up. The reality is that no matter how secure the nonhuman end of things is, the mere existence of people using a system will always mean the potential for data breaches.Should we throw in the towel? Of course not. If we did, cyber criminals would practically rule the world.Instead, we should focus on increasing security awareness in the workplace, from the ground up and from the top down: We should teach workers how to handle data to minimize the potential of its falling into the wrong hands. A couple of strategies:Tell employees that a data breach could mean the loss of their job. This will give them incentive to become more security aware.Impress on employees the warning signs of a cyber attack so that they can more easily spot suspicious activities.Every employee, old and new, should be thoroughly instructed on security at the level of the individual computer. And new employees, before they officially begin work, should complete this training before accessing the company’s network.Install technology that will detect when employees are doing something they shouldn’t. The software will alert them in time to take corrective action as well as enhance their learning experience.Set up mock “phishing” emails to see who takes the bait. “Internal phishing” will teach employees how to be smarter and less gullible.So, what are some ways to maximize security awareness? Here are eight.1. Establish a baseline. Before you can get awareness efforts going, you must first collect all the metrics to establish a solid reference point. An example might be the results of the staged phishing. Metrics are important, as they will enable you to gauge the success of effort.2. Be realistic. Don’t think in terms of banning a certain activity, like involvement with social media, but rather of teaching employees to be judicious about it. 3. Use lots of tools. A program for security awareness should involve multiple venues such as video games, newsletters, mock phishing and whatever else comes to mind.Related: What Startups Need to Do to Be Cyber Secure in 20154. Be creative. Even if funds are scarce, you can still make the learning process more fun than drudgery. For example, give boxes of candy canes out for the holidays, but tucked inside each box enclose the company’s security policy. Employees will more likely read the policy if it comes with candy canes than if it’s simply mailed, or handed to them in the office by the boss.5. Seek high-ranking executive support. Once the “bigwigs” get involved, employees lower on the chain will more likely follow suit. How can we get “C-level” decision makers on board in the first place? Tell them that return on investment is contingent upon security. That will get them hopping. Another way to grab their attention is to send out newsletters specifically for them, which will add to their feeling privileged. In the newsletters, include information on security awareness.6. Recruit other departments. No department is too unimportant to be involved in security awareness. Get every department involved, even your housekeeping and cafeteria staffs. But especially go after your marketing, legal and human resources departments, because they’re in a position to make security awareness a requirement.7. Re-evaluate. Re-evaluate your new program every 90 days, without fail. This approach has been shown to be quite effective. To avoid information overload, emphasize maybe three topics at a time over the three-month period. Then, 90 days later, see what needs to be revised, based on those three topics.8. Hit close to home. Get employees to focus on themselves; don’t harp just on security awareness that affects the company. Make workers understand that security is about them, too, not only the elusive bigwigs. Talk to them about the most common scams and tricks cyber criminals use, and how to protect themselves at home, with tools such as firewalls and wireless VPNs.Related: U.S. to Establish New Cybersecurity Agency May 5, 2015 4 min read Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box.

The lines between pay TV and OTT are becoming increasingly blurred. While pay TV operators and OTT content and app providers still in many cases see each other as competitors, cable and IPTV providers are increasingly looking to open up their platforms to OTT providers via partnerships in order to help sell broadband access. Examples include the numerous cable and telecom service providers in Europe that have done deals with Netflix.Others – notably satellite pay TV broadcasters – still see OTT as a threat rather than an opportunity. However, to make the picture more complex, these broadcasters are increasingly branching out by launching their own complementary OTT services, targeting a different audience in order to head off the threat presented by pure OTT players and expand their subscriber bases.Finally, content owners and channel providers are themselves getting involved in the distribution business by launching OTT packages, either as an alternative to pay TV distribution in markets where opportunities for the latter are lacking, or to complement pay TV services.DTVE recently surveyed over 140 senior industry participants from 48 countries, including OTT service providers, triple and quad-play operators, pay TV channel providers, IPTV service providers, free-to-air broadcasters, cable operators and DTH operators, to find out how they viewed emerging models for pay TV, OTT and content providers.The resulting report, which is now available to download free of charge, provides a fascinating insight into how pay TV and OTT providers view the challenge and opportunities of competing or collaborating to attract subscribers.
