    NEW DELHI: Laser walls may soon be used to stop infiltration from Pakistan. This is one solution BSF is exploring to implement more effective border checks.

    The laser wall will ensure that anyone approaching the border or breaking the beam in an unfenced zone sets off an alarm.

    Other than laser walls in unfenced areas, the force is considering anti-tunnel ground sensors and thermal sensors in the fenced stretches. Such technologies, sources said, are already in use in countries such as Israel.

    "We're constantly modernizing our weaponry and upgrading defences according to the new challenges facing us. We have looked at some of these technologies and have found them suitable," BSF director general DK Pathak said.

    Sources in the force said laser beams would form a wall in places such as the riverine parts of Jammu where fencing isn't possible. The system will be connected to an alarm which would go off at any breach. At present about 15% of the Indo-Pak border and about 35% of the Indo-Bangla frontier is unfenced.

    Given that terrorists often use tunnels to sneak in, BSF is acquiring seismic sensors which would be planted underground along the border.

    These would record vibrations resulting from tunnelling and alert the control room. This is largely being installed on the Indo-Pak border in Jammu and Punjab, which see maximum tunnelling attempts by infiltrators.


    BSF is also setting up a "smart fencing system" where thermal sensors would be installed on fences which would alert control rooms of any living being approaching the fence. "This would work as an advance alert system where one would have time to reach the area where infiltrators might be attempting cut a fence and enter. Or a smuggler may be trying to pass on a contraband packet," said a BSF officer.

    The force is acquiring unmanned aerial vehicles and other surveillance equipment to bolster its border defence. The move comes even though BSF maintains that there is no infiltration from Pakistan on the borders it guards. "In the past three years we have found no evidence of infiltration on international border with Pakistan," Pathak said.

    However, there have been several terror attacks in border areas of Jammu, such as Hiranagar in Kathua, where militants have been suspected to have entered crossing the international border guarded by BSF. However, no agency has as yet found any evidence.

    What about the existing tunnels? They won't emit vibrations anymore. How would we detect and destroy them?

    If these laser beams are kept forward, it will give the location of the 'break' of the beam and act as a alert for the SF personnel to be ready to 'receive' the intruder.

    While it is indeed a good thing, but then the beam can be 'broken' by animals, birds and anything that moves and need not be a human being.

    I am sure the BSF will also have equipment that will 'see' into the area where the beam has being interrupted so that they can make out if it is a human being or animals etc.

    Underground activities provide a much more pronounced seismic signature than surface movements.

    These lasers will be in the inner area of the fence. i.e. as per current fence which exists, there is a gap of about 2 metres between 2 fences which is covered with barb wire. The lasers will be installed there. So no animals can get in.

    Also, thermal sensors can detect how big is the thermal signature. Big enough for a man or small like a rat or billi.

    Sir, as I said in my reply above, if the lasers are installed in the gap of 2 metres (approx.) between 2 fences, there will be no animal incursion there. Animals can't cut barb wire, only humans can.

    what about use of CCTV and Video analysis in conjunction with Lasers.

    it would be also good if we have afghans cross over their border for some picnic and biscuits and chai. the great sunni nuke nation of pakistan has a lot of people that want to stay there and not leave.

    Please see the videos I posted of available solutions.

    I saw them.

    They are find in civil areas but not in military situation.

    I dismantled my security system at home since it put on the lights (good that I did not have an alarm or else I would have been thrashed by the neighbours) because they got activated by cats and even mongooses since I have a garden where they run a riot at night.

    If it saves even One Human life it will be well worth it.

    economically Indians should become specialists in things like this that affect them and create an export industry around it similar to israel

    Indians are already specialists in getting decent systems working for a better price. imagine how many lives would be saved from preventive measures like this instead of land mines?

    Our defensive mindset knows no bounds.

    Expect terrorism to increase as Pakistan diplomatic failures continue.

    Yes i agree with you, my analogy was different because of pakistan, India has to waste so much money on its defense. The same money would have been used for other purposes.

    so much money & manpower is being used because of this fickle minded pakistanis.
