De-escalation between the Indian Army and Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA) in eastern Ladakh is far from complete. Both forces have been engaged in an intense military standoff along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) since May of last year.
The Indian Army has now deployed motion-sensitive cameras and sensors to monitor Chinese activity in forward areas along the LAC. The equipment includes PTZ (pan tilt zoom) cameras and sensors, sources told India Today.
Such state-of-the-art equipment will not only enable the Indian Army to keep track of the adversary but also send out a timely warning in case of any escalations.
The plan to set up a surveillance net along the LAC had been in play for some time but the military standoff in eastern Ladakh has prompted the top brass to fast-track the process, added sources.
A proposal to use motion-sensitive cameras and sensors along the LAC in eastern Ladakh was even made to the Parliamentary standing committee on Defence a few years ago.
