FORCE Editorial Calendar 2022

FORCE 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 ‘Atma Nirbhar’ policy which is now the most desirous form of procurements. Hence, FORCE will frequently review and analyse government policies and domestic manufacturing capabilities, both in the public and the private sector.

Each issue of FORCE will address modernisation of the Indian military and paramilitary forces; the challenges it faces and the limitations it has. FORCE will be the ‘one-stop-shop’ for all issues pertaining to procurements, both under DAP and through government-to-government agreements.

FORCE will also be participating in a number of international defence and aviation shows in 2022. 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.
