    "We have more than 20 terabytes of data on border movement which earlier used to be recorded in physical logbooks of soldiers. These include thermal images, instances of people going near the fence from across the border, activity at late night, etc,” says Tushar Chhabra, co-founder of Gurgaon-based driverless truck company CRON systems, which helps the army in predicting border-infiltration patterns.

    For instance, terrorists on the other side of the border usually send a herd of cattle to check for mines that the armed forces have placed on the border. Analysis of past data has shown that typically an incursion follows 12 days later.

    Nyokas, a Kochi-based startup, has developed a smart jacket for armed forces. When a solider gets injured during an operation, the smart jacket sends signals to other soldiers.

    Delhi-based Innefu Labs provides analytics services to BSF, CRPF and police departments across the country. The firm’s data analytics predicted that incidents of cross-border infiltration and narcotic smuggling increase on cloudy and foggy days.
