New Delhi: In order to combat China’s growing military power on the India-China border, the Indian Army has pepped up its efforts to modify its surveillance equipments deployed on the border . As a timely initiative, the Army has asked the Bharat Electronics Limited to increase the night-time and long distance visibility of the Long Range Reconnaissance and Observatory System (LORROS).

According to the government sources, the Army is required to modify its vigilance system to give a stiff competition to the Chinese vigilance technologies. Sources from the Army headquarters revealed top Army officials had presented a proposal in this regard to BEL in a meeting held recently. Notably, the Army is involved in ‘comparative power compilation’ policy regarding China.

It is to be noted, India had deployed Israel made LORROS on the eastern Ladakh border following China’s deployment. The system is equipped with several hi-tech cameras with night-time range of 13 kilometres and images captured in frontal zones can be seen in the army headquarters in just a few seconds.

The Jawans deployed at the post have also been provided Hand-Held Thermal Imaging Sensor to identify human activities even in dark. A special radar network is also functioning in the area to keep a check on any activity carried out by the patrolling Chinese aircrafts.
