CRPF, BSF and State Police forces for Internal Security Application

8. CRPF, BSF and State Police forces for Internal Security Applications

Geospatial Applications: NECTAR (erstwhile Mission for Geospatial Applications) has developed state of the art technology by generating 3D Digital Terrain Models for use in both Ops room & field for planning counter insurgence operations and launching field operations by the state police and paramilitary forces of our country. About 70 Terabytes of Digital data in the form of raster maps, High Resolution Imagery & Digital elevation data has been successfully processed within the stipulated time frame and generated 3D Terrain Digital Models of the following geographical extents-

  • All the districts of Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand, Odisha, Assam, Meghalaya, Nagaland, Tripura, Manipur,
  • 16 districts of West Bengal,
  • 14 districts of Bihar,
  • 14 districts of Arunachal Pradesh,
  • 9 districts of Jammu & Kashmir,
  • 7 districts of Madhya Pradesh,
  • 3 districts of Maharashtra.

Highly skilled technical staffs of the Centre imparted training to various paramilitary and state police forces at different locations/stations in India for their successful use of the Model in planning & operation. Officials have taken participation in many such operations with state police officials of Assam and Meghalaya to assist them in using the Terrain models in real time counter insurgency operations.

Communication Technology: NECTAR has indigenously pioneered and established the Software Defined Radio(SDR) project as a reliable, cost effective and robust communication technology for use by government and security agencies to transfer maps, photographs and other data files with zero error over long distances on HF. This has been serving as a fail-safe network for the voice and data communication needs of the police forces and it can be used as a last resort for communication in the wake of natural disasters. The prototype model was developed and tested by paramilitary forces and it has been developed into professional model in PPP mode which were delivered to CRPF and BSF including NDRF to establish voice data communication between Delhi and Srinagar during floods.
