That is why the Indian Army has increased the frequency of surveillance in the border area to monitor its activities.
Army officials say surveillance capacity has increased since the establishment of the aviation wing. Now, commanders can be fed on the ground by going up to a height of 30,000 feet to facilitate the army to carry out operations on the ground.Meanwhile, the Indian Army is monitoring the LAC near the China border with a Heron Mark-1 drone at Misamari Army Aviation Base in Assam. The drones have been deployed close to the border to monitor China’s actions. India has taken the drone from Israel. These drones can fly up to a height of about 30,000 feet and are very helpful in monitoring the steps of the People’s Liberation Army of China along the border. With the help of this drone, the army can monitor the preparedness of the enemy army from hundreds of kilometres away, the construction work being carried out by them, etc., it acts like an army eye in difficult areas. Army officials say the Chinese army is carrying out large scale construction work along the border with India.
