Indian Govt Outs Sky Marshal Gear

Most Indian airline passengers know they are there on planes. But who they are — and what they are carrying — has remained, because of obvious security reasons, a closely-guarded secret.In coming out with draft Qualitative Requirements (QRs) for the sky marshal kit, the government has now virtually made public details of much of the equipment carried by the men tasked with thwarting hijacks and other security threats on board Indian carriers on domestic and some international routes.Commandos of the National Security Guard (NSG) fly like ordinary passengers on commercial airliners on certain “vulnerable” sectors. QRs are generally put out before the actual tendering for a product. They are intended to inform vendors the exact requirements from the product.
