To enhance the security of the coastline by monitoring intruders and terrorists, the India’s special police force to secure coastal borders, Tamil Nadu Coastal Security Group (CSG) CID, has decided to get unmanned robotic boats in a recently concluded two-day seminar. India has a 7.516 km long coastline and security is a big concern of the agencies in India.
CSG is planning to send a representation to the centre via state government to get the robotic boats, the Times of India quoted the additional director-general of police, CSG-CID, C Sylendra Babu, as saying. This new age unmanned boats are used by many countries to secure their coastline.
These boats are equipped with HD rotating cameras that can take pictures as well as send them immediately to control room. The unmanned boats can be remotely controlled through satellites. Using these boats, any suspicious activity on the coastline can instantly detect by the coast guard, Navy, and CSG CID officials.
Besides the robotic boats, the officials also agreed on sending a proposal for recruiting and training special security personnel to handle terror attack and other sea attacks specifically. Also, ex-Navy and coast guard officials assigned to ride the boats that CSG CID uses will get inducted in the state police departments of the respective states.
