[Network Media Defense Line] Awesome! Exploring the "black technology" on the frontier defense line

Cctv news(Reporter Wang Xiaoying) After soaring to an altitude of 1,000 meters, the Horgos River and Karajok Mountain appeared in sequence, and the snow on the top of the mountain in the distance gradually became clear.

Allard Ritu, a border guard, has looked down at this land from the air many times. This is Alamali Border Company of Yili Military Division of Xinjiang Military Region, guarding the border line of more than 60 kilometers between China and Kazakhstan.

The distance seems not long, but the place where the border line of more than 60 kilometers is located used to be patrolled by border guards on foot and horseback.

The road under your feet may have gone through many times, but from this perspective, it is very rare.

According to Allard Ritu, this UAV is a six-rotor UAV, which uses a high-definition wireless image transmission system to support manual precise control and autonomous flight.

In 2017, the company was equipped with this drone, and the technology that Allard Ritu trained and learned three years ago came in handy and became the pilot.

However, the climatic conditions in Alamali are quite different, with mountains and strong winds. Can this drone adapt? "Its flying height can reach 1,000 meters, it can work below 5,000 meters above sea level, it can resist the seven-level wind and has a long battery life, and it can work in the environment of-30℃ ~ 40℃," said Allard Ritu. Because of this, it can work in other environments except fog, heavy rain, heavy snow and lightning.

For this reason, this "black technology" is quite popular with border guards and soldiers because it saves time and effort! In the past, border patrols were all on foot or on horseback, which took three or four hours, and it took half an hour to patrol with drones. For areas near the camp, you can even patrol remotely in the company.

In addition to drones, there are many "black technologies" used in border patrol, such as digital monitoring system, border anti-crossing alarm system and low-light-level night vision device.

It is understood that Xinjiang’s border defense line is more than 6,800 kilometers long, and many pastures are close to the border. In the past, because border control mainly depended on regular patrols by people, it was difficult to avoid herds crossing the border and easily caused foreign-related disputes on the border.

In the peak season of herd activities every year, officers and men have to send more special services and set up temporary stations, which is very stressful.

In recent years, many frontier troops have stepped up the construction of scientific and technological border control. In many places, digital monitoring systems and border anti-crossing alarm systems, low-light night vision devices, mobile searchlights, audio-visual detectors, thermal imagers, sensors and other equipment, as well as multifunctional duty systems have been installed. In some key areas, helicopter patrols have been gradually strengthened, which has greatly improved the border control ability and quality of defense areas. 

It is understood that with the addition of these "black technologies", there have been fewer and fewer incidents of cattle and sheep crossing the border in some places in the past, because when the herds are close to the border, the automatic monitoring equipment can feed back the situation to the nearby border defense companies in time, and the soldiers immediately inform the herdsmen to close the herds to prevent them from crossing the border. 

Today, in the Alamali border defense company, this drone has to "be on duty" two or three times a week, and each patrol range is about 20 kilometers. Allard Ritu said that he can "get it done" by himself, but the time is a little slow. If two people are partners, it is the best.

In fact, "black technology" such as drones is gradually becoming a good partner for border guards and soldiers to patrol.
