Indian Air Force took another significant step in its quest for acquiring Network Centric Capabilities when Chief of the Air Staff Air Chief Marshal PV Naik inaugurated the ‘Tele-Presence System’ under the Air Force Network (AFNET) project on Wednesday.
This system facilitates lifelike experience between two distant sites for holding operational discussions that results in saving crucial time, fatigue and cost.
During the Tele-Presence session, Air Chief Marshal PV Naik advocated the use of the system extensively for operational and other procurement and training activities in order to cut down costs in economically tough times.
The Air Chief congratulated the AF Net team for achieving yet another milestone.
From the Bangalore site, this conference was attended by Air Officer Commanding-in-Chief, Training Command.
The system uses high definition cameras, spatial audio and calibrated acoustic systems for providing real-life experience which cannot be achieved by other video conferencing systems.
Tele-Presence system rides over IAF’s state-of-the-art IP/MPLS network providing adequate reliability and security.
