To Help The Soldiers Posted At The Himalayan Borders, India Is Installing A Web Of Doppler Radars

Updated on 26 December, 2016 at 4:30 pm By

According to Sputnik India will soon install a web of Doppler radars across India, so as to help the soldiers that are posted on borders, especially the Himalayan Ranges.

The biggest reason for doing so is the unpredictable weather on the Himalayan Ranges, which is our soldiers biggest enemy.

With these, the Government plans to provide an accurate weather update to the troops and that too in real time, which in turn would be a huge help to the troops that are posted on the borders with China and Pakistan.

These would be a network of Doppler radars, which would be installed by the Indian Air Force and the Ministry of Earth Sciences.

According to Sputnik, there would be a total of 22 Doppler radars, and they would be installed at strategically important locations in the Himalayas.

Further, the ministry aims to replace all the weather forecasting systems with Dopplers by 2019 and has chalked out an expenditure of  $ 45 million.

Unfortunately, the project already is far behind schedule as the Air Force is facing severe problems on the treacherous terrain, ironically due to unavailability of proper weather forecasts to them.

 

Currently, there are 145 locations where the Doppler Weather Radar network operates including few in the Himalayan states.

But the majority of these radars are non-functional due to the failure of maintenance and lack of support systems as its hard to find critical spares parts for them.
