    Pentagon has submitted a list of 10 sensitive technologies for transfer from US to India.
    WASHINGTON: The US has submitted a list of 10 defence technologies for transfer to India, bringing it into a small group of closest allies with which America shares such sensitive details without export control.

    Informed Indian sources confirmed that the Pentagon has submitted a list of 10 sensitive technologies for transfer from US to India.

    New Delhi is "reviewing" these offers and would get back to the United States soon, with its response, they said.

    Meanwhile, the US has sought opinion from its strong defence industry to identify next set of technologies which could be shared and transferred to India.

    According to US sources, the number of such defence technology transfers could cross 90.

    Deputy secretary of defence, Ashton Carter, who is leading unleashing of the defence ties between India and the US through the defence trade and technology initiative, said the US has submitted a white paper explaining where India falls within US export control system.

    "The paper we sent them covered several key areas from export controls rules themselves to end use monitoring and the need to identify proposals for co-production and co-development," he said at the Center for American Progress.

    "We have demonstrated repeatedly that we can release sensitive technology to India. We've adapted our system in ways that will speed our release process for India, especially in the department of defence, recognizing that for, of course, all partners, this process is subject to case-by-case review and there will always be some technologies that we will keep to ourselves," Carter said.

    "We changed our mindset around technology transfer to India in the department of defence from a culture of presumptive no to one of presumptive yes," he said.

    Asserting that India has been brought at part with closet of its allies, Carter said the Obama Administration has now included India in the list of "so called Group of Eight" that receives the best of the technologies without export control.

    Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, who recently met US President Barack Obama, has said steps have been taken to expand the India-US ties and move away from a buyer-seller cooperation to joint development and production in the field of defence.

    Let us have a wish list from the members.

    I am interested to see if the infantry soldier does get some equipment or not in the list.

    It is a great beginning for two great nations... outside NATO India will be the only country to get key USA defense technology be it through joint development or TOT. India needs to upgrade its defense equipment and capability in the context of the current security situation in its neighbor.

    It would be really good if India can learn technologies relating to soldiers battle field protections and network centric communication equipment. Also throw in some night vision technologies which include IR sensing capabilities. Also US marines have unique underwater equipment which enable to launch missions from subs without surfacing. That would also be good.

    lot of tech which we are interested in, the very fact that CBU-105 was given to us, against Chini armor, shows that some back room dealing has taken place.

    Tech which can be given to us:-
    1. CBU-105
    2. Artillery guns.
    3. Transport helicopters.
    4. attack helicopters.
    5-6. Transport aircrafts (both types).
    7. F35 fighter aircraft (may be for navy version)
    8. Javelin missile.
    9. Missile defence system.
    10. Engine for LCA.

    We can get few predators and few hundred Hellfire missiles to use against the Paki Intruders until 2017.. The recent case when the Pakis took over our posts and Our Heli-Gun ships were not being able to engage the enemy will be enough to justify..

    we can just bomb them... Even the -----is will not try to intrude!!
