Indo-Tibetan Border Police Force vehicles to be tracked via satellite

Tasked with operating in remote mountainous areas amid inclement weather conditions, the Indo-Tibetan Border Police Force (ITBP) is turning towards satellite-based systems to track and control the movement of its vehicles. ITBP officers said plans had been drawn up to install GPS tracking and navigation systems in vehicles that would provide real-time information on their location besides other relevant data. “We have just finished trial runs of the pilot project to validate the concept,” an ITBP officer said. The pilot project involved installing such systems on 10 vehicles in specified battalions. An ITBP battalion is authorised 60 vehicles of different categories.
