Army gets 140 AI-based surveillance systems at borders to keep watch on China, Pak

749-km-long LoC with Pakistan and 3,448-km-long LAC with China to receive world-class surveillance systems.

The Indian Army is enhancing the utilization of surveillance technology to keep watch on China and Pakistan by deploying 140 AI-based surveillance systems along the Line of Control (LOC). These systems will give a live feed of the ground station via high-resolution cameras, UAVs, sensors, and radars. 

Artificial Intelligence (AI) will aid the technologies to arrive in the required positions. It will then enable remote target detection and classification, whether a person or a machine. These technologies will be trained to interpret, alter, and detect anomalies and intrusions at the borders. The Army also upgraded its arsenal with other AI-based products for human behavioral analysis, robotic products, etc. 

The surveillance units can also monitor social media posts and predict adversary actions in real-time. Additionally, suspicious vehicle recognition systems are deployed in eight locations in Southern and Northern commands to generate counter-terrorism operations intelligence.

The Army has set up the AI Center at the Military College of Telecommunication Engineering, Mhow, Madhya Pradesh, to oversee the surveillance systems. A source at the defense establishment said, “AI is capable of providing considerable asymmetry during military operations and is one of the transformative changes in fighting wars,”

The Army is also seeking 5G technology to aid battlefield operations. The high-bandwidth connectivity will give an upper hand to frontline troop communication. The Army is conducting joint studies with the Corps of Signals to implement 5G appropriately. It has also signed an MoU with IIT-Madras to expand the investigation.

Incorporating AI into national security surveillance will also considerably reduce the requirement for manual monitoring.
