    Military organisations worldwide have steadily increased reliance on space assets for communications, surveillance, and navigation. The military use of space includes communication, imagery, navigation, signal/electronic intelligence, early warning, and meteorology. Of all these, communication followed by imagery and navigations are the most important, widely and extensively used applications, both by civil and military organisations. India has sufficient space capability as compared to China, to support its defence forces especially in the field of communication and sufficient capability for surveillance, the two major and most important applications of space systems.
