The future threat will be not fought with traditional arms and ammunition. The future warfare may not destroy the infrastructure but will destroy the economy, create internal unrest, mass destruction of the citizens, etc.
We are witnessing the emerging of such ware fare in the past few decades. The major unconventional and emerging ware fare are.
1. Cyber warfare: Cyber warfare is usually defined as a Cyber-attack or series of attacks that target a country. It has the potential to wreak havoc on government and civilian infrastructure and disrupt critical systems like financial systems, governance systems, defence data , resulting in damage to the state and even loss of life.
2. Chemical Warfare:
· Toxic chemicals and their precursors, except where intended for purposes not prohibited under this Convention, as long as the types and quantities are consistent with such purposes;
· Munitions and devices, specifically designed to cause death or other harm through the toxic properties of those toxic chemicals specified in the above subparagraph, which would be released as a result of the employment of such munitions and devices.
· Any equipment specifically designed for use directly in connection with the employment of munitions and devices specified in above subparagraph.
3. Biological Warfare: Biological warfare, also known as germ warfare, is the use of biological toxins or infectious agents such as bacteria, viruses, insects, and fungi with the intent to kill, harm or incapacitate humans, animals or plants as an act of war.
4. Radiological Warfare:
Radiological warfare is any form of warfare involving deliberate radiation poisoning or contamination of an area with radiological sources.
Radiological weapons are normally classified as weapons of mass destruction (WMDs), although radiological weapons can also be specific in whom they target, such as the radiation poisoning of an individual or group of people.
We must protect our Country and the Armed Forces against the modern/emerging warfare. The solution could be on
. Detection: Early warning of the threat
Neutralization: Eliminate the threat
Protection: Protection of our Army, State and Citizens from such threat.

1. Robotics and Autonomous System ( RAS) Militaries all over the world have already developed robotics to be deployed on land, sea, and air. Just like autonomous technology in the civilian world, its benefits include reduced labor costs, reduced fuel costs, and reduced size for everything from automatic taxis to delivery drones; autonomous military vehicles provide all of these same advantages but with the additional benefit unique to militaries.
One analysis of the pro and cons of military robots highlighted, “First, autonomous weapons systems act as a force multiplier. That is, fewer warfighters are needed for a given mission, and the efficacy of each warfighter is greater. Next, advocates credit autonomous weapons systems with expanding the battlefield, allowing combat to reach into areas that were previously inaccessible. Finally, autonomous weapons systems can reduce casualties by removing human warfighters from dangerous mission.”
Robots can replace human in positions that are too dangerous or too dull. The military isn’t nearly as worried about robot being destroyed by enemy fire as they are about solider getting killed. Robots can also be sent into toxic environments.
2. AI (Artificial Intelligence)
Although no official definition of artificial intelligence, policymakers generally use the term Al to refer to a computer system capable of human-level cognition. Al is further divided into three categories narrow Al, general Al, and artificial superintelligence. Narrow Al systems can perform only the specific task that they were trained to perform, while general Al systems would be capable of performing a broad range of tasks, including those for which they were not specifically trained. Artificial superintelligence refers to a system “that greatly exceeds the cognitive performance of humans in virtually all domains of interest. General Al systems and artificial superintelligence do not yet and may never exist.
3. Lethal Autonomous Weapon Systems (LAWS)
LAWS as a class of weapon capable of both independently identifying a target and employing an onboard weapon to engage and destroy the target without manual human control. This concept of autonomy is also known as “human out of the loop” or “full autonomy.” The directive contrasts LAWS with human- supervised, or “human on the loop,” autonomous weapon systems, in which operators have the ability to monitor and halt a weapon’s target engagement. Another category is semi-autonomous, or “human in the loop,” weapon systems that “only engage individual targets or specific target groups that have been selected by a human operator.
4. Direct Energy (DE) Weapons
DOD defines directed energy (DE) weapons as those using concentrated electromagnetic energy. rather than kinetic energy, to “incapacitate, damage, disable, or destroy enemy equipment, facilities, and/or personnel. DE weapons could be used by ground forces in short-range air defense (SHORAD), counter-unmanned aircraft systems (C-UAS), or counter-rocket, artillery. and mortar (C-RAM) missions.” DE weapons could offer low costs per shot and-assuming access to a sufficient power supply nearly limitless magazines that, in contrast to existing conventional systems, could enable an efficient and effective means of defending against missile salvos or swarms of unmanned systems. Theoretically, DE, weapons could also provide options for boost-phase missile intercept, given their speed-of-light travel time; however, as in the case of hypersonic missile defense, experts disagree on the affordability, technological feasibility, and utility of this application.
High-powered microwave weapons, a subset of DE weapons, could be used as a non kinetic means of disabling electronics, communications systems, and improvised explosive devices, or as a nonlethal “heat ray” system for crowd control.
Biotechnology leverages life sciences for technological applications. A number of developments in biotechnology hold potential implications for international security writ biotechnologies, such as the low-cost gene-editing tool CRISPR have the potential to
alter genes or create DNA to modify plants, animals, and humans. Such biotechnologies could be used to enhance for degrade) the performance of military personnel. The proliferation of synthetic biology-used to create genetic code that does not exist in nature may increase the number of actors that can create chemical and biological weapons
Similarly, the US intelligence community’s 2016 Worldwide Threat Assessment cited genome editing as a potential weapon of mass destruction,
In addition, biotechnology could be used to create adaptive camouflage, cloaking devices, or lighter, stronger, and potentially self-healing body and vehicle armor. Concerns have been raised that the same ethical standards in the research and application of biotechnologies, particularly regarding biological weapons, genome editing, or more invasive forms of human performance modification.”
6. Quantum Technologies
Quantum technology translates the principles of quantum physics into technological applications. In general, quantum technology has not yet reached maturity, however, it could hold significant implications for the future of military sensing, encryption, and communications. quantum communications could enable adversaries to develop secure communications that military personnel would not be able to intercept or decrypt. Quantum computing may allow adversaries to decrypt (unclassified, classified, or sensitive] information, which could enable them to target the country personnel and military operations
Quantum technology could have other military applications, such as quantum sensing, which could theoretically enable significant improvements in submarine detection, rendering the oceans “transparent.,. Quantum sensing could also provide alternative positioning, navigation, and timing options that could in theory allow militaries to continue to operate at full performance in GPS. degraded or GPS-denied environments.
7. Image Processing
Application of Image Processing in Military digital image processing has been widely deployed for defense and security applications such as small target detection and tracking, missile guidance, vehicle navigation, wide area surveillance, and automatic/aided target recognition.
8. Sensor Technologies
Modern military and defence environments require proven, reliable and scalable technologies. Sensors are a critical part of the technologies as these provide solutions to the whole defence ecosystem, including complex controls, measurements, monitoring and execution. Military and defence systems include drones, spacecrafts, missiles, military vehicles, ships, marine systems, satellites and rockets. These systems work in the harshest of environments during normal as well as combat operations. Internal and external security systems rely on smart and intelligent sensor technology for surveillance, intelligence and combat operations. Thus, sensors have become an integral part of military systems and the performance needs of all military vehicles, equipment and related systems.
Sensors are used in flight controls, propulsion, environmental monitoring, weaponry controls, indicators, communications and so on. You can find sensors in various security systems, explosives detection systems, chemical warfare, crime detection systems, intrusion detection systems and civil establishments, among others. Sensors are also used in battlefield surveillance systems for the conduct of modern warfare. These are deployed on land, aerial platforms, in space and underwater, to keep a 24×7 watch over a particular targeted zone
9. VR & AR
AR and VR-backed tactical military training will revolutionize how soldiers process data and instructions to execute operations in combat missions. The military also benefits from reduced training spending and lower soldier mortality rates.
AR and VR deployment in military boot camp training showcases operations in hostile areas like jungle interiors, snow-covered mountains, rivers, oceans, deserts, and even the skies. It teaches soldiers critical skills like teamwork, survival, adaptability.
10. Textile Technology
Severe climatic situations, abrupt body movements, and deadly atomic or chemical reactions are all protected by the fabrics, which are specifically tailored for the soldiers. Furthermore, the utility of technical textiles doesn’t really end there. The usefulness of such fabrics has long been acknowledged for improving fighter efficiency and saving people’s lives in battle.
Military officials all throughout the world make considerable use of technical textiles. Textile-based materials combining nanotechnology and electronics are essential in the creation of high-tech military clothing and supplies. Active and intelligent textiles, when combined with technology, have the potential to increase a soldier’s efficiency by detecting and adjusting to the pre-set condition, as well as reacting to situational needs.
