The government will procure high-tech security equipment to arm the Jammu and Kashmir police with state-of-the-art means to combat terrorism.

The J&K police headquarters has floated e-tenders for supply and procurement of such items from original manufacturers, assistant inspector general, (provision-transport) PHQ Sheikh Junaid Mehmood said.

The police will be procuring liquid explosive detectors (LEDs), intrusion detection systems (IDS), ground penetrating radars (GPRs), bomb inhibitors (BIs), boom barriers, foldable multi-zone DFMD fitted with cameras, RFID-based vehicle access control systems and flood lights.

According to Mehmood , the LEDs should detect the presence of 15 types of hazardous liquids or gel and distinguish from benign liquids.

“It should detect the presence of hazardous liquids or gels regardless of container shape and size. It should also detect the need to open the bottle or liquid container,” he added.

The LEDs should operate in extreme weather conditions such as -20 degrees to 50 degrees Celsius. Quick scan-detection should also be done in less than 10 seconds and depth can-detection in less than 2 minutes, he said.
