In the context of the Forecast Demonstration Project (FDP) of the India Meteorological Department (IMD), a review is made of the various observational facilities and techniques which can be deployed, for the detection tracking and understanding of tropical cyclones.  The real test of the efforts in terms of technology is the performance of our forecasts in an operational context. The paper discusses the steps needed in this regard.
