Army to Buy Six Border Surveillance Systems

After having fenced 550 km of the 778-km Line of Control (LoC) with Pakistan,  India will soon buy six all-weather border surveillance management systems to keep a tight vigil against terrorists’ infiltration into Jammu and Kashmir.

The Army’s Uddhampur-based Northern Command -  which defends the state against foreign aggression and responsible for internal security in the state - has issued a tender recently for the purchase of these systems that would help it to keep a tab on the LoC that is still porous despite the fencing.

“The surveillance system is required to cater the Indian Army’s requirement for keeping a day-and-night vigil in high-altitude area,” a senior Army officer said here on Thursday. The system, he said, should be “simple, yet provide observation” at any time at a surveillance centre or observation post set up well within the Indian side of the LoC behind the sensor, under extreme cold climate conditions.

The surveillance system would be networked so that a single centre is able to observe the feed of multiple sensors and the all-weather, day-and-night camera would be able to record images.
