Drone companies showcase 'smart guard' solutions for Indian borders

China, India, Israel, US compete on remote security systems for vulnerable areas

NEW DELHI -- India is a potentially huge customer for drones to monitor vital installations, a coastline of more than 7,500km, and over 15,100km of borders with seven countries -- including old foes China and Pakistan.

The country's land borders have mostly been drawn by hand, but run through immensely varied terrain and climatic conditions. The frontier areas have been witness to wars and numerous more minor disturbances over the years. The most recent dispute occurred on the Doklam plateau close to the borders of China, India, and their tiny neighbor Bhutan.
