The Indian Army has established a unique unit known as the Signals Technology Evaluation and Adaptation Group (STEAG) to spearhead advancements in military communication technologies. This team will focus on studying and adapting advanced communication technologies like 6G, AI, machine learning, and quantum computing for military purposes. The goal of STEAG is to bring together the Army, Industry, And Academic Experts to develop our high-tech communication systems. This move is in line with the Army’s aim to get new technologies to improve how we fight wars nowadays.

Why STEAG ?

STEAG will be like a top-notch organization, the first of its kind, capable of using the latest technology and finding ways to use it for Defence purposes by working closely with universities and companies, said one official.

STEAG’s main job is to look into wired and wireless communication systems, including things like mobile phones, software-defined radios, and electronic warfare equipment. Indian Army officials stress how important STEAG is for finding cutting-edge solutions and teaming up with others to figure out how to use them for Defence.

The special unit will focus on upcoming technologies like electronic exchanges, mobile communications, software-defined radios, electronic warfare systems, 5G and 6G networks, quantum tech, AI, and machine learning, said the official.

STEAG will do things like checking out new technology, testing it, developing it further, and managing the important information and communication technology (ICT) solutions. They’ll also help soldiers use these technologies effectively by maintaining and upgrading what we have now, the official added.

STEAG will concentrate on key areas like 5G and 6G networks, quantum tech, AI, and machine learning. It will check out new technology, test it, develop it further, and manage the important information and communication technology (ICT) solutions. They’ll also help soldiers use these technologies effectively by maintaining and upgrading what we have now, the official added.

The official also mentioned how Signals Technology Evaluation and Adaptation Group STEAG will support India’s goals of self-reliance (Atmanirbhar Bharat) and encouraging startups (Start-Up India). By bringing the army, industry, and academia together, STEAG aims to make India less dependent on other countries for high-tech communication systems.

The creation of STEAG shows the Army’s commitment to keeping up with new technologies as warfare changes. General Manoj Pande, the Army Chief, has stressed how important it is to stay ahead in technology to be better prepared for battle. In line with the principles of Self-Reliant India and Start-Up India, STEAG is dedicated to connecting the military, businesses, and educational institutions to foster collaboration and innovation.

Officials believe that Signals Technology Evaluation and Adaptation Group will help India become more self-sufficient in high-tech communication systems, which have mostly been controlled by countries with more advanced economies and research systems. This Center of Excellence is expected to make a big difference in India’s journey towards being more self-reliant in technology.

In modern warfare, good communication is crucial for success. Officials say that having better communication technology and the ability to share information easily will give one side a big advantage over the other. STEAG’s formation shows how serious the Army is about adopting new technology to improve its digital capabilities and provide seamless communication during operations.

An official mentioned that it’s really important for the army to have the newest ways to talk and share messages to stay ahead in battles. Also, today’s fights need better gear to keep the communication going without any breaks. That’s why the Indian Army has made a new team called STEAG, which will help make the army’s digital skills even stronger.
