Maritime surveillance goes hi-tech

Indian Navy has set up a next-gen intelligence system to beef up its surveillance and patrolling duties

It has set up a Command Centre in Gurgaon which will receive real-time radar feed and pictures taken by high-definition cameras, satellites and maritime surveillance aircraft.
