China Steps Up Surveillance Along India Border With A Patrol Boat, Camera Network
China’s People’s Liberation Army has to develop and deploy a new type of non-metallic patrol boat on the Pangong lake that falls between Ladakh in India and Tibet Autonomous Region to strengthen its border forces.
It has also building a surveillance camera network and is planning to deploy a satellite early-warning monitoring system in some border areas, state media reports say.
It was near the strategic Pangong lake, locating at the height of more than 4,250 meters near the disputing border between the two countries, that Indian and Chinese soldiers clashed last August over the allegation.
The area is a history of confrontation between border troops of the two countries.
Last year’s incident was occurring in the midst of the military standoff in Doklam near the Sikkim border.
Deployment of new patrol boats is the part of PLA’s more extensive plan of strengthening border outposts.
“At Pangong Lake, with at an altitude of 4,250 meters is dividing between Southwest China’s TAR and India, PLA has put a new patrol boat into the use which is making non-metallic materials. A craft has a top speed of 40 kilometers per hour and can resisting ice collisions,” the Beijing Evening News says in a report.
In February, China has announced that it was upgrading the air defense of Western Theatre Command, which is looking after the security along the Line of Actual Control to “confront any threat from India.”
The PLA has then released photographs of a J-10 fighter jet a lightweight which is a multi-role fighter aircraft—along with the J-11—a single-seat, twin-engine fighter jet—flying over the high-altitude plateau in western China.
The new report says the PLA was plugging gaps in its management and monitoring of border areas, especially areas with the extreme climate and hostile terrain. The report, quoting by the nationalistic tabloid, Global Times, did not specify that is other than a mention of Pangong lake but implied that deployment of at least some of the “new types of the equipment” could be along the disputing border with India.
“A satellite early-warning monitoring system is planning in some border areas that are difficult to enter and to patrol,” the Beijing Evening News reporting.
“A surveillance camera network has also built in the border zones, and the density of coverage is set to increase to cover the blind spots, although the report did not mention which, or if all, of China’s border regions, are covered,” the report is adding.
“The informatization and mechanization of equipment, vehicles and monitoring methods of the PLA border defense give early warning to any risks security as well as overcoming of previous blind spots,” Song Zhongping, a military expert, tells.
The report implies that in the jungles of a southwest China’s Yunnan, the sparsely populated deserts of Xinjiang in the northwest and the high plateaus in Tibet, PLA troops begin using drones to patrol more areas than ten years ago, which has resulted in a 25-fold increase in the efficiency”.
The report is adding that border troops in Koktokay in Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region recently testing more than 20 types of the new equipment. “Koktokay, in northern Xinjiang and bordering Mongolia, has an average temperature of -20 degree Celsius in the winter. A new type of a hot water bottle that can keep the water hot for 24 hours has issued to the soldiers in Koktokay.”
So, these are the points to describing on China steps up surveillance along India border with a patrol boat, camera network.
