IAF Upgrading Radar Coverage Along China Border

According to sources, the radar coverage on the western front is relatively simple in the Rajasthan, Punjab, and Gujarat sectors, but from Jammu and Kashmir on the western front up to Arunachal Pradesh in the northeast is very difficult due to the mountainous region.

According to defence sources quoted by ANI, the military is now constructing additional radars to monitor Chinese Air Force operations in the Ladakh sector.

According to the sources, the Defence Ministry has advanced proposals for the purchase of over 20 low-level transportable Ashwini radars and high-powered radars worth over Rs 10,000 crore.
