The MoU signing ceremony is taking place in the presence of CAS Air Chief Marshal V.R. Chaudhari and Prof. (Dr.) Bimal N. Patel, VC,

The MoU will also support R&D in the area of internal and national security. Additionally, the University will accredit IAF training facilities.

Speaking on the occasion, the Chief of the Air Staff said, “While new non-kinetic and non-lethal means of warfare are also being deployed, conventional realms of battle have been expanding steadily. In the digital era, knowledge is becoming a key resource, and information is having a bigger impact on geopolitics and strategy.

“The nature of security threats has changed, and newer approaches to achieving strategic goals are taking shape. Additionally, they are producing fresher, undiscovered vulnerabilities.
