    Just over a fortnight ahead of Defence Minister A. K. Antony’s maiden visit on July 4 to Beijing, a small flap took place near the Line of Actual Control (LAC), but both sides utilised the existing mechanisms to defuse the situation.

    A People’s Liberation Army (PLA) patrol in Chumar sector in Southern Ladakh took away a camera placed on the ground, about six km ahead of an Indian Army post.

    India raised the issue of missing camera at a meeting of border personnel two days later on June 19 and China returned the non-functional camera earlier this month, government sources here said on Tuesday.

    Seeking to play down the incident, the sources were not inclined to describe it as an “incursion’’ in the disputed territory where perceptions about the LAC differ.

    The sources said the camera was placed ahead of the Indian post to monitor the movement of Chinese troops along the LAC, which was probably not to the liking of the PLA. The Indian side is in an advantageous position in Chumar as there is a road right up to the Army post whereas the area is not easily accessible from the Chinese side. In fact, the situation here is reverse. Instead of smooth roads for the Chinese, it is the Indians who have a motorable track to their forward locations while PLA troops have to travel by mules.

    The camera would alert India about the movement of Chinese patrol and because of the relatively better infrastructure, Indian security forces beat their Chinese counterparts on occupying a hillock that gives a clear line of sight for several km. In fact, it was here the Indians had built a temporary tin shed after the Chinese set up camps in Depsang. The shed was dismantled in return for the Chinese restoring the status quo by removing the tents.

    Both the Indian Army and the PLA patrol the desolate region, about 200 km from the Depsang plains where a Chinese platoon entered in April and set up camp about 19 km inside Indian territory.

    Diplomatic channels on both sides worked overtime to defuse the tension and face-off in that region in eastern Ladakh that lingered on for nearly three weeks. At that time India agreed to dismantle some bunkers in the area.

    Pointing to the joint statement issued at the end of Mr. Antony’s visit on July 6, the sources said the two sides noted that peace and tranquillity on the border was an important guarantor for the growth of bilateral cooperation. The two Defence Ministers also emphasised the importance of enhancing mutual trust and understanding between the two militaries.

    It was also agreed to enhance visits of border troop delegations to promote dialogue and strengthen trust and cooperation. Similarly, it was also agreed to have Border Personnel Meetings with greater frequency.

    Chinese do not make even a descent Camera, so it is quite understandable that China wanted to steal Camera, very usual to its nature...

    They took the cameras to check what all photos we have taken.

    It would give them a perspective as to what all areas of the Chinese can be surveilled from that position held by India. This will help them to devise ways and means to mask such areas from Indian observation and surveillance.

    Having done that, with much fanfare of 'sheer humility' and 'desire for peace and tranquillity' have returned the cameras, their task having been done!

    Chinese troops “take away” camera; not incursion, says Govt

    Chinese institute develops 100-megapixel camera

    BEIJING: A Chinese institute claimed to have successfully developed a 100-megapixel camera which could produce high-resolution imaging in the fields of aerial mapping, disaster monitoring and intelligent transportation systems.


    The IOE3-Kanban camera was developed by the Institute of Optics and Electronics under the Chinese Academy of Sciences making it China's highest pixel camera, CAS said in a statement.

    The camera is capable of producing images with 10,240 x 10,240 pixels, the statement said.

    Moreover, it is small and light, with its widest part measuring only 19.3 cm, state-run Xinhua quoted the statement as saying, adding that it can be used at temperatures ranging from minus 20 degrees centigrade to 55 degrees centigrade.

    Its high sensitivity and high dynamic range (HDR) features mean it will be useful in high-resolution imaging in the fields of aerial mapping, city planning, disaster monitoring and intelligent transportation systems, the statement said.

    Intelligent transportation system is aimed to provide innovative services relating to different modes of transport and traffic management, enabling various users to be better informed and make safer, more coordinated, and 'smarter' use of transport networks.

    The camera is equipped with advanced optical systems, camera control systems and high-capacity data recording systems, and it has proven successful in a recent trial use as a part of a national aerial remote-sensing system, it said.

    The institute also developed an 81-megapixel camera during the 10th Five Year Plan period (2001-2005), and the latest achievement took the researchers two years to develop.

    A megapixel is one million pixels, and is a term used not only for the number of pixels in an image, but also to express the number of image sensor elements of digital cameras or the number of display elements of digital displays.

    And they returned it because they found the camera had stopped working five minutes after it was installed.

    Completely agree. This was a straight up intelligence gathering operation and a very simple one at that.
