As future combats are predicted to be 'non contact wars', India was focusing on developing robotics, underwater vehicles and unmanned systems, a top Defence official said here today.

"Tomorrow's wars are going to be non contact wars.. we are focussing on unmanned systems and robotics. autonomy levels have to change. After having achieved some skills in Earth's surface, we are focussing on underwater vehicles," DRDO Director General Avinash Chander said.

DRDO had done sufficiently in radars segment that 80 per cent of radar equipment required for the armed forces was provided by the organisation, he said in a speech at the 55th Institute Day of IIT Madras here.

Scientific and academic institutions must focus on innovation and not on repeating experiments and reproduce products, said Chander, who is also the Scientific Advisor to the Defence Minister and Defence Secretary (R&D).

"We have been excellent survivors. India has been surviving in technology. From catching up with technology, India should be a leader in technology," he said.
