Counter-Terrorism: India, Israel and Border Security India has long been using Israeli security technology and border security advice along its more dangerous borders, like those in Kashmir. The Israeli equipment and experience helped stop illegal border crossings of armed Islamic terrorists from Pakistan through the use of ground radar, thermal imaging and other electronic gear. The key to these systems was new video and sensor analysis software, which the Israelis have pioneered. For a long time, it was conventional wisdom that you could not prevent irregulars (terrorists, guerillas, bandits, smugglers) from getting across a long frontier. But both Israel and India have been able to build security fences that have succeeded in keeping terrorists out. India has borders more than ten times longer than Israel and cannot afford to intensively use troop patrols to cover it all. The Israelis have proposed a security fence that comes in many different levels of complexity (and cost) and advised India to buy as much as they need for every part of the border.
