Army eyes advanced systems for LoC surveillance in J&K
Jammu: Army`s Northern Command Headquarters has floated tenders for the purchase of six Border Surveillance Management Systems (BSMS) for deployment in Jammu and Kashmir.
"A surveillance system is required which can cater to Indian Army`s peacetime requirements, both during day and night," said the Request for Proposal (RFP) document released recently by Northern Command`s First Field Ordnance Depot.
The move comes in the light of increased attempts at infiltration across the Line of Control (LoC) in J&K in recent months.
The border area already has in place a strong surveillance mechanism, including three-tier fencing, flood-lighting, sensors, thermal imagers and manual patrolling, and the BSMS is only expected to enhance the Army`s anti-infiltration capabilities.
As per specifications, the BSMS set-up must be simple, yet able to provide inputs any time to a surveillance centre situated well behind the sensor (observation post).
"It should be networked so that a single surveillance centre is able to observe the feed of multiple sensors," the RFP says.
The system should contain observation devices and come with a thermal imager camera which can observe and record images both in daylight and during darkness.
The system should also be able to function in both wireless and wired mode, the RFP stated.
