Artificial Intelligence and Air-based sensors to help Indian Army scan LAC

From new Artificial Intelligence-enabled software to track movements of Chinese patrols to integrating a range of ground and air-based sensors that look deep across the Line of Actual Control, the Army is stepping up surveillance capabilities in the Eastern Sector in the face of an increasingly aggressive PLA.

As part of a multi-pronged plan, road infrastructure, specially at the sensitive Tawang sector, is also being enhanced significantly with a network of bridges and tunnels that will take away dependence on air assets to support troops in all weather conditions.

Giving an inside view on new capabilities, senior Army officers said that not only are all available surveillance assets being used but younger officers have been tasked to create bespoke systems uniquely suited to the requirements for the Tibet border.

Last year, Tawang sector saw increase in area dominance patrols and visits by senior PLA officers across the border, a trend observed in Uttarakhand and Sikkim too. As reported, this has resulted in alarm on some occasions, like the Barahoti incident in Uttarakhand in late August when transgressing PLA troops damaged infrastructure.
