Army improves surveillance along LAC in Arunachal Pradesh

India’s efforts along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in the western part of Arunachal Pradesh have been consolidated to ensure rapid entry of fully armed forces, round-the-clock surveillance and evacuation of casualties in case of emergency.

A remote pilot aircraft, known as a UAV, regularly flies from Misamari in northern Assam and hovers over the Himalayas in Arunachal Pradesh with an eye on LAC Bam La and Tawang. The UAV with 24×7 surveillance capability is one of the assets of the Independent Army Aviation Brigade stationed here. The brigade was formed in March this year. The UAV maintains surveillance and provides real-time images of commanders in the front area.

“The image of the UAV is good and it works even at night,” a senior official told a group of media in Delhi. The officer hid the UAV’s number information, saying there were enough numbers.

The brigade has been tasked with responding along the Tezpur-Bomdila-Tawang-Bam La axis, which saw the 1962 war with China.

The brigade is equipped with advanced light helicopter WSI (Weapon System Integrated) which is equipped with Mistral Air-to-Air Missile. The helicopter can handle reconnaissance, military transport, anti-tank combat and close air support. A unit of ALH copters is also part of the brigade.

Army Aviation and Indian Air Force have joined hands to manage the future. The IAF’s US-made Chinook and Russian-made Mi-17 helicopters are co-located with Army Aviation as part of an air effort to quickly deploy troops in the Arunachal Pradesh valley. The rapid entry of troops into the Arunachal Valley was calibrated in 2018 during a Gagan Shakti exercise.

“Some serious flights are underway in the front area,” said a senior official at Misamari, the army’s 71st Division headquarters.

Misamari is located in the foothills of the Himalayas and historically was a base by Allied forces that was used during World War II as a supply route between India and Kunming, China.
