Internet service started on Siachen Glacier: Satellite Internet service activated at an altitude of 19061 feet, Indian Army will get help
Internet facility has also started on the world's highest battlefield i.e. Siachen Glacier. The Indian Army's Fire and Fury Corps has taken this important step in this direction. The Fire and Fury Corps has activated satellite-based Internet service at an altitude of 19061 feet in Siachen. Internet service has been started in this area only on Sunday (September 18).
Earlier, due to the lack of internet in this area, it was very difficult for the Indian Army to send messages, but now the forces will have more ease in sharing intelligence. Apart from this, they will be able to talk to their family members and relatives. However, for what purposes this service will be used, has not been disclosed.
Siachen Glacier is spread over about 78KM near the Indo-Pak border. On one side is Pakistan, and on the other side is Aksai Chin. In the Shimla Agreement of 1972, Siachen was described as lifeless and barren. However, the boundary between India and China was not determined.
In 1984, the Indian Army got information that the Pakistani army was trying to take over the area, after which on 13 April 1984, the Indian Army deployed its special detachment of Fire and Fury Corps in this area.
The Indian Army is engaged in continuously advancing itself. She is constantly upgrading herself and continuously strengthening her preparedness at the border. It is also continuously developing infrastructure in the areas adjacent to the border. Along with this, the army's focus is also on operational and strategic preparedness. This move of the army is very important in view of the aggression of the Chinese army.
On September 5, Fire and Fury Corps Commander Lt Gen Anindya Sengupta inaugurated the community radio station RGAZOM 90.8 MHz in Kargil on Monday. RGAZOM 90.8 MHz is the first Community Radio Station (CRS) in the Union Territory of Ladakh and will fulfill the long-awaited aspirations of the local population, an Army statement said.
The radio station will cover Kargil and its surrounding villages, the second largest city of Ladakh and will reach out to around 40,000 citizens. The Community Radio Station (CRS) is operated by local staff.
