    41 Porous Points on Punjab Border to Get Laser Wall to Stop Terrorists

    The suspected infiltration point of Ujj River in Bamiyal used by terrorists in the case of the Pathankot attack was not covered by a laser wall

    NEW DELHI: 41 points identified on the International Border (IB) of Punjab which have riverine unfenced stretches will all be covered by a laser wall on priority to eliminate chances of human error in allowing terrorists to infiltrate from Pakistan. This follows directions after PM Narendra Modi's aerial survey of the border last week and concern over repeated intrusions.

    The suspected infiltration point of Ujj River in Bamiyal used by terrorists in the case of the Pathankot attack was not covered by a laser wall. A camera to keep watch here over the 130-meter wide river bed was found to be not recording the footage. ET has learnt that BSF has now covered this stretch with a laser wall last week, just before the PM's trip. The equipment, which is fabricated in-house by BSF, for another stretch was diverted to cover this point. Only 5-6 out of the 41 vulnerable Punjab points are covered by laser walls - this beam over the river sets off a loud siren in the case of a breach.

    BSF had started putting laser walls on unfenced riverine stretches of IB last year, starting off in the Jammu sector which was more prone to terrorist intrusions till the Gurdaspur strike last July exposed the Punjab route. The infiltration for Gurdaspur attack was suspected 5 kilometers downstream of Bamiyal near the Tash border out post - a riverine point not covered by a laser wall as well. A senior government official said that the BSF conceded before the PM that "it could be possible" that terrorists in case of Pathankot infiltrated from Bamiyal due to a "human lapse". BSF has found no tunnels.

    "The said point at Bamiyal has BSF posts on either side of the bank with a personnel on each post keeping a watch on the river at all times - the area is lit up with high mast lights, the official told ET. "The river is just a stream at this time...the terrorists may have possibly walked through the dry river bed at night and BSF personnel may have missed them," an official said. BSF has foiled 69 infiltration attempts in the Jammu sector of the IB last year - it has been pressing for more manpower in the Punjab sector since October since deployment in Jammu vis-a-vis Punjab is in the ratio of 2.5:1.

    BSF has pointed out that Bamiyal is not a known drug trafficking route with no drugs being seized here over the past 3-4 years. It has also made a case that unfenced riverine stretches on Punjab border were being guarded with additional measures like boat patrolling. Further, neither has an additional camera at Bamiyal covering a wide area including the approach to the river has captured any intrusion nor any footmarks have been found near the river bed here. "BSF however is not in denial mode anymore and admits that intrusion possibly happened from Punjab border," a top official said.

    Looks a good awake after Pathankot incident.
    I know such wall was also being built on international border at Kashmir. Will such tech be used on that? o_O

    Well, I've no political views about Punjab but I'm a supporter of BJP. I've visited Punjab very few times and found it a rich and awesome state.

    Ah! So they just woke up? :shock: WTF were they doing all this time when they knew that the Punjab border is as leaky as a sieve?

    We always seem to react, not act in a proactive manner.

    okey. but who will take measures to stop the corrupt BSF from allowing cross boder illegal infiltration to smuggling? This govt sure is not doing anything if WB border can be taken for example.

    "Smart Fence" technologies were presented, including underground protection solutions which use seismic and electronic sensor systems to provide answers to intrusion scenarios such as walking, crawling, digging, drilling, tunneling etc.
    As the requirements and needs for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) continue to grow in the homeland security (HLS) arena, companies displayed solutions especially designed for that market. These UAVs have the capability to transfer video in real time, day and night, also enabling detection, identification and recognition of a car’s plate from a distance of 200 meters.

    Unmanned ground vehicles (UGV), which can replace soldiers and save lives, were presented as well. These are semi-autonomous vehicles, offering enhanced weapons capabilities including a command and control system, a variety of payloads and modular weapon stations, and a tailored communication suite. They are designed for border patrol, force protection, combat support and more.

    Electronic warfare solutions were offered, including communications jamming and detection systems, cellular jamming devices, automatic intruder detection systems, stereoscopic systems that are capable of analyzing suspicious movements in 3D, passive vibration sensor cables designed for outdoor installation on various types of perimeter barriers such as chain link or welded mesh fences, cyber security systems which intercepts and alerts for attacks, worms and other threats, and video capturing and recording solutions which can be transmitted and displayed whenever and wherever necessary.

    Many of these technologies have been implemented on Israel's borders, providing top-notch security to Israel's citizens. A high ranking army office told I-HLS that the complexity of border fences requires a special force to maintain it: "We have in the unit a number of specialists that are capable of doing the job."

    I think automatic infrared warning system and remote control guns are also finalized.

    There is no way to seal a border completely. There measures that can increase control to some degree, but the only ultimate way to check this threat is effective retaliation. They won't cross the border when they start not wanting to cross the border.

    If small countries like Hungary can completely seal their border from Syrian refugees it is possible. Technology ,money effort and commitment needed.

    I think the sheer amount would be counter productive in case of India with long borders and coastline. It would be quite easy to repeat an attack like 26-11 even now. Also it puts India on defensive and gives offensive advantage to attackers.

    It would be the same problem. Indian border guards would have to see and identify them first to shoot them. Anyway it would keep entire border force in wartime alert and would take nervous toll on men. That's why effective retribution is the best course, it strangles the root cause. When Pakis know that they would have to pay the price with young middle/upper class Punjabi male dead bodies, they would think 100 times before planning an attack.

    Army to Deploy Remote-Controlled Guns at LoC to take on Infiltrators

    [​IMG]

    The first prototype sub-machine guns operated by remote control are being tested in the Akhnoor sector and results show the deployment of these weapons will shield and assist soldiers as they go about their daily task of perimeter protection and intrusion detection, said Lieutenant General RR Nimbhorkar, commander of the Nagrota-based 16 Corps.

    The locally-developed integrated contraption uses a mix of infrared sensors radiating a grid of beams to detect any movement up to a distance of 80 metres ahead of the border fence – the distance between the fence and the LoC can vary from 50 metres to over 2km depending on the terrain.

    [​IMG]

    The sensors are linked to automatic guns mounted on rotors and mated to night-vision cameras providing live images to commanders manning workstations with mapping software in the bunkers.

    A buzzer is sounded if the grid is broken, swivelling the weapon in the direction of the intrusion site. “If the target is visually identified as hostile, the observer simply presses a button to take it out,” said Brigadier PC Vyas who is implementing the remote-controlled weapons project.

    A modification alongside the weapon’s trigger actuates the firing sequence when the remote button is pressed. The guns can be raised, lowered and rotated in a 150-degree arc.
