Brainchild of noted journalist and visionary Shri S.P. Baranwal, SP Guide Publications was established in 1964. Daring to
tread the path that very few can even dream of venturing on, it was his foresight which a year later fructified into the
Military Yearbook, later renamed SP’s Military Yearbook.

SP Guide Publications now presents SP’s Military Yearbook 2009. In keeping with its commitment to bridge the gap
between the armed forces and the defence industry, the treatise incorporates in-depth analysis of the needs and
aspirations of the armed forces as well as the capabilities and potential of defence manufacturers. Its distinguished
panel of editors comprises current and former elite personnel of the Indian armed forces as well as foreign contributors
from across the globe.

An exhaustive reference manual for the armed forces of all the Asian countries, the SP’s Military Yearbook presents
the most effective platform to reach leaders and decision-makers in the armed forces, defence industry and the
Government. With its rich content and holistic insights garnered from the opinions and perspectives of experts in the
field, it is acknowledged as a veritable treasure-trove of accurate, relevant and indispensable information.

“A weapon that offers not just the penetration but respectability, too, generating a sense of pride within the
manufacturers,” says the Editor-in-Chief, Jayant Baranwal, emphasising on its wide reach that allows defence
manufacturers around the globe to advertise their product and attract potential buyers.

Get Noticed
SP’s Military Yearbook is the perfect carrier for ensuring assertive market penetration that fuels high brand recall
wherein industrial nations can make worthy use of production capacity and their relentless R&D efforts to introduce
new technologies. India is the focal point for global defence business and will attract investments to the tune of
$250 billion (or Rs 10,08,664 crore) in around the next 20 years. As the country’s economy spirals upward, the
necessity to defend its economy and the need to ensure sustainable growth become vital, demanding a much
stronger role for its armed forces that are naturally on a spree of extensive modernisation.
In view of a rich legacy spanning four decades, and the consistent trend of improving on every subsequent edition,
SP’s Military Yearbook has emerged as a Bible for the armed forces. It is the only reference document which is relied
upon heavily and unquestionably by the leaders, key decision makers and the top brass in all concerned sectors.
Consequently, SP’s Military Yearbook offers sharp and repeat market penetration throughout the year, year after year.

Presence Initiatives
SP Guide Publications has been relentlessly working towards enhancing the scope of its reach. In keeping with this approach, SP’s has now
tied up with global show organisers, such as DSEI 2007 in London and the Seoul Air Show 2007. Plans are afoot to work towards such
tie-ups consistently. Back home, SP’s has been very active with Indian Government-sponsored exhibitions and conferences, like Aero India
and Defexpo that are increasingly grabbing the spotlight with their massive scale and scope. Further, nurturing an enduring and enriching
partnership with the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII), the leading umbrella organisation of Indian industries, SP’s has played a very
active role in domestic events that are highly focused, such as Army Industry Partnership, Navy Industry Partnership, NAVARMS 2007, CII’s
Defcom and other events showcasing the various arms of the defence forces. As a result of such initiatives, SP’s Military Yearbook has
garnered further recognition and momentum.
