This video shows you that Indian Navy Wants The Latest Technologies For Its Future Aircraft Carriers.
The Indian Navy is considering the latest technologies for its future aircraft carriers, and has sought “a go-ahead” from the Ministry of Defence (MoD) for a design feasibility study to look at “the latest advances in this field.”
Chief of Naval Staff Admiral Sunil Lanba told India Strategic in an interview and media interaction that over the last few years, new technologies have emerged relating to “propulsion, launch and recovery systems for aircraft as also other ship-borne systems of aircraft carriers” and that the Navy is looking at all the options considering “our operational necessities and financial outlay.”

Very significantly, he mentioned, the idea is “to move forward from the configuration of INS Vikramaditya and the Indigenous Aircraft Carrier IAC-1 that is under construction.
Notably, both these carriers have ski jumps and arrestor wires to launch and recover aircraft, and the Navy is known to be studying the latest Electromagnetic Aircraft Launch System (EMALS) and Advanced Arrestor Gear (AAG) that the US Navy has adopted beginning with its newest aircraft carrier USS Gerald Ford.
So far, all aircraft carriers have used turbines or nuclear power to generate steam to propel the ships and onboard aircraft.
A ski jump of around 14 degrees is built to give a boost to launch the aircraft on full power.
EMALS and AAG use high bursts of electric energy to propel and stop the aircraft.
General Atomics (GA), which owns the patent for these two systems, has already offered them to the Indian navy subject to clearance by the US Government.
So far, the Indian Navy was also considering nuclear power for its future aircraft carriers but Admiral Lanba disclosed that the second Indigenous Aircraft Carrier or IAC-2 will be non-nuclear.
He did not elaborate but MoD sources indicated that electric propulsion, as for instance used by the latest British Royal Navy’s HMS Queen Elizabeth and US Navy’s Zumwalt class destroyers, was an option.
