Top commanders of Indian Air Force and Indian Navy will review the security situation within the country and in the maritime domain and will take stock of the operational preparedness of the two Forces during their three-day meet beginning here on Wednesday.

The three-day Commanders conference of IAF and Navy would be chaired by their chiefs Air Chief Marshal N A K Browne and Admiral Nirmal Verma respectively.

"Air Force will take stock of its operational preparedness and will review the data base concerning maintenance, administration and other aspects of the force," IAF officials said here today.

The Naval Commanders will be addressed by defence minister A K Antony in New Delhi, following which all the top commanders will have a brainstorming session over issues involving maritime and coastal security of the country.

"Several issues concerning preparedness of force in the maritime and coastal domain, implementation of the ongoing projects and future development would be discussed over a period of three days," Navy officials said here.

On Tuesday, commanders of the three services were addressed by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh during the Combined Commanders Conference.

Observing that the international strategic and political environment has deteriorated, Singh cautioned the Services that terrorist groups targeting India were now highly networked, nimble-footed, more lethal.

The three services hold their Commanders Conference twice every year to review their operational readiness and take stock of the security situation in and around the country.
