The Indian Army will deploy its first network-centric warfare system to automate and integrate its artillery operations and provide better decision support.

With better information exchange, the technology will enable soldiers to focus artillery fire power at operational and tactical levels more efficiently and attack the target at a desired location.

Named Project Sakthi, the artillery combat command and control system (ACCCS) is a major division of the tactical command control communication and intelligence (Tac C3I) system, top military officials said.

ACCS will perform vital functions like technical and tactical fire control, deployment management, operational logistics and fire planning.
