Editorial Calendar

FORCE Editorial Calendar 2019

As always, FORCE editorial will continue to build a bridge between the user and the provider through specialist articles on existing and emerging technologies as well as concepts. This would be woven in with the government of India’s ‘Make in India’ policy which would now be the most desirous form of procurements. Hence, FORCE will frequently do assessment articles on domestic manufacturing capabilities, both in the public and the private sector.

Each issue of FORCE will address modernisation pertaining to defence, security and civil aviation, through the prism of ‘Make in India’; the challenges it faces and the limitations it has. FORCE will be the ‘one-stop-shop’ for all issues pertaining to procurements, both under DPP and through government to government agreements.

FORCE will also be participating in a number of international defence and aviation shows in 2019. While FORCE will be available for distribution at all these shows, in some of these events, FORCE will bring out Special Issues and Show Dailies. After all these events, FORCE will do a post-Show Report in the following issue.
