‘IndSpaceEx’: India to hold first simulated Space Warfare Exercise in July

After successfully testing an anti-satellite (A-Sat) missile in March and initiating the raising of a new tri-service Defence Space Agency soon after, India is now planning to conduct its first-ever simulated space warfare exercise next month in July.

Named ‘IndSpaceEx’, the exercise will basically be a ‘table-top war-game’, with all stakeholders from the military and scientific community taking part in it.

It is to be held in the last week of July under the aegis of the Integrated Defence Staff of the defence ministry.

The main aim of the exercise is to assess the requisite space and counter-space capabilities that are needed by India to ensure national security interests in this final frontier of warfare.
