Amidst missile testing carried out by Pakistan, India is feeling the pressure mounting up and has revealed details about its new smart laser fence.
India is setting up a smart fence alongside the India-Pakistan border. Initially only the border in Jammu and Kashmir will have the new smart fence installed. The total part of the border to be covered will be 198-kilometers, covering districts like Kathua and Samba.
The Indian government is going to invest Rs. 8 Billion (Around 12.5 Billion Pakistani Rupees) on this fence which they’re claiming to be the world’s best laser-based anti-infiltration technology. The total cost for the system will be covered by the Indian government.
For this venture, Indian Institute of Management and the Israel government are teaming up to install the new anti-infiltration system.
Official sources as, quoted by Indian media said,
It is for the first time that the government of India is officially taking the assistance of Israel in installation of world’s latest technology equipment on the International Border to trap the militants during their infiltration attempts.
The focus is on to trap the militants even if they managed to breach border fencing or infiltrate through tunnels, as has been witnessed on some occasions in the past. The technology would ensure that the militants are trapped on the border at any cost
The initial testing for this new anti-infiltration system has turned out to be successful.
