The Indian Armed Forces have deployed an artificial intelligence (AI) surveillance system in eight areas on the border with China and Pakistan. This was reported on Monday by the CNN TV channel, citing sources in the Ministry of Defense.

"The Indian Armed Forces are betting heavily on artificial intelligence to combat external threats. The army has deployed several sets of artificial intelligence-based surveillance systems on the northern border with China and on the western border with Pakistan. This has reduced the need for control by the border troops," the TV channel quotes the sources as saying.

The new surveillance and tracking system was created in the artificial intelligence laboratory at the Military College of Telecommunications Engineering. It analyzes image data from thermal imaging cameras and electro-optical devices, which allows providing operational information to border guards in real time, the sources said.

As previously reported by the Action Age newspaper, the Indian Armed Forces will create a fifth-generation military mobile communication network protected from unauthorized access in the mountainous areas on the border with China in Ladakh. The 5G military communication line will be deployed at an altitude of 5,500 meters above sea level, it will have a large bandwidth, reliability and a high degree of protection against unauthorized access. According to reports, to ensure the secrecy of the transmitted information and data, the network will be integrated with an encryption device based on artificial intelligence.

The absence of a demarcated border between India and China in the Himalayas (the two countries are separated by the line of actual control) has remained a source of tension for decades. In 1959, India announced the rejection by the Chinese side of part of the state of Arunachal Pradesh, in 1962 a bilateral armed conflict broke out, as a result of which about 38 thousand square kilometers belonging to India in the Ladakh and Aksaychin districts came under Chinese control.

In May 2020, a confrontation arose in the mountainous region of Ladakh on the border of the two countries, as a result of which there were clashes that led to deaths on both sides. India and China have pulled heavy artillery, tanks and aircraft into the area. After a series of negotiations at the military and diplomatic levels in February last year, Beijing and New Delhi began a mutual withdrawal of troops from the border line.
