Entire LOC stretch now under vigilant watch of anti-drone systems

Srinagar: The Indian Army and Border Security Force (BSF) have deployed state-of-the-art anti-drone systems along the Line of Control (LoC) in the Rajouri-Poonch region of Jammu and Kashmir.

The installation of advanced anti-drone systems has proven to be highly effective in detecting and countering cross-border drone activities, as reported by Kashmir News Observer.

Particularly in the Rajori-Poonch sector, the army has reported success in thwarting two major infiltration attempts by Pakistan this year alone. Additionally, successful operations have been conducted along the border to neutralize drone threats.

Sources reveal that the anti-drone systems deployed by the Army cover extensive areas along the LoC in Rajori-Poonch districts, enabling real-time monitoring of suspicious activities.

A senior officer said that nearly the entire stretch of the LoC is now under the vigilant watch of anti-drone systems. “This proactive approach has significantly enhanced the security posture along the LoC, minimising the risk of unauthorised aerial intrusions,” said the Officer.

In addition to the efforts by the Indian Army, the BSF has also installed anti-drone systems along the International Border (IB) to fortify defenses against potential threats. These systems, developed in collaboration with various technical companies, provide coverage of 2 to 3 kilometers around the border area, ensuring a robust defense mechanism.
