AUKUS Alliance And Its Pivot To France

AUKUS Alliance And Its Pivot To France:

The article discusses the AUKUS alliance among the US, UK, and Australia to bolster military capabilities against China, including sharing nuclear submarine technology.

  • AUKUS, a trilateral partnership formed in 2021, aims to bolster security and defence interests, primarily countering China’s influence in the Indo-Pacific region.
  • It entails deeper information and technology sharing, along with the integration of security-related industries.
  • India is not a member but has engaged in informal talks with the AUKUS bloc on emerging technologies, though no formal dialogue has taken place yet.
  • AUKUS shares nuclear submarine propulsion technology with Australia, marking the first time the U.S. has done so outside the UK.
  • Additionally, the partnership spans eight high-tech military domains, including AI, quantum technologies, cyber warfare, undersea warfare, hypersonic technologies, electronic warfare, and innovation/information sharing.
  • For instance, an algorithm enhancing sonobuoy data sharing from P-8 Poseidon aircraft is among the initial technologies utilized.
  • Despite operating similar aircraft to AUKUS nations, India wasn’t offered participation in AUKUS’s nuclear technology sharing.
  • Traditionally, the US reserves such technology for closer allies.
