Defunct Nasa satellite may crash over Indian Ocean

, by indianmilitaryveterans

Press Trust Of India
Washington, September 23, 2011

Russian space experts have forecast that the defunct six-tonne Nasa satellite, that is set to crash on the Earth soon, is likely to fall in the Indian Ocean.
According to data obtained by the Russian experts, the satellite may fall in the Indian Ocean, north of the Crozet Islands,
Russian news agency Itar-Tass quoted Space Forces spokesperson Alexei Zolotukhin as saying.
However, Nasa said it is too early to predict the exact crash site of the twenty-year-old Upper Atmosphere Research Satellite (UARS) and six years after the end of its productive scientific life.

"It is too early to say exactly when UARS will re-enter and what geographic area may be affected, but Nasa is watching the satellite closely and will keep you informed," Nasa said on its website.

According to media reports, the $750-million satellite is expected to break into 26 large pieces before reaching the ground. The debris are likely to be scattered over around 800-kilometre area.

Ex-armyman held for robbery links

, by indianmilitaryveterans


District police in Kolkata have picked up former armyman Uttam Mahato and taken him on seven-day remand to get a breakthrough in recent crimes like bank robberies in the town. Mahato, who hails from Baliapur in Jharkhand, lost his job in Bihar Regiment after he was found guilty in several criminal cases, including murder of an MLA.
Asansol-Durgapur police commissioner Ajay Kumar Nand said Mahato’s name has surfaced in bank dacoity cases. “We have picked up him for further interrogation that could give us some vital clues about the recent crimes in Asansol,” Nand said.
A brilliant student, Uttam studied at Sindhri College in Jharkhand and joined army in 1996. His mother-in-law is posted in the excise department. Uttam was posted at Bikaner in Rajasthan where he started to commit petty crimes. He and his colleague Jaswant Singh was found guilty in murder of local MLA Subodh Singh and was court-martialled in 1999. While in jail, he got associated with various criminals in the next five years and formed a gang thereafter. Few days back, Rs 15 lakh had been looted from an SBI ATM counter and Rs 14.70 lakh from United Bank of India’s Apcargarden branch in Asansol.
State CID is investigating both these cases and they suspect Mahato has link with both the crimes.

India to deploy BrahMos missile to counter China’s threat

, by indianmilitaryveterans

New Delhi, Sept 23 : India would soon upgrade its military capabilities in its northeastern border with the induction of an advanced variant of the 290-km range supersonic cruise missile for mountain warfare to act a deterrent to China’s military ambitions.
The sanction for inducting a regiment of the Block III steep-dive variant of the BrahMos, has been recently approved by the Defence Acquisition Council  (DAC) meeting chaired by the Defence Minister, AK Antony. DAC is the apex decision making body of the Ministry. This move is slated to pave the way for induction of the fourth missile regiment in the army and is expected to enhance the lethality of army's firepower in the northeastern region.
BrahMos is a stealth supersonic cruise missile that can be launched from submarines, ships, aircraft or land and has been inducted in all the three services. This steep-dive attack cruise missile can hit enemy targets hidden in the shadows of mountains.
This preparedness comes at a time just before the two-day 1st India-China Strategic Economic Dialogue is scheduled to take place in Beijing from September 26. The Indian side will be led by the Deputy Chairman of the Planning Commission, MS Ahluwalia. The Chinese side will be led by the Chairman, National Development and Reform Commission, Zhang Ping.
The strategic economic dialogue between the two countries was conceived during Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao’s visit to India in December 2010.
So far the Indian Army has inducted a total of three regiments already including two of the Block II variant, which can precisely hit the intended enemy building or assets even in a cluster of buildings.
With a view to counter China’s aggressive tendencies India has already deployed two squadrons of the Su-30 MKI fighter jet aircraft in Tezpur and Chhabua in Assam and raised two mountain divisions for deployment in Arunachal Pradesh and adjoining areas.
India is also developing over 70 strategic roads on the India-China border.
