IIT-B students to arm fight against terrorism with technology

The wireless communication device technology that the American forces used in their mission to find the most wanted terrorist, Al Qaeda leader, Osama bin Laden, may well be on its way to India. Over the years, terrorist attacks, naxal attacks and cybercrime, among others have been on the rise. With technology almost missing from the whole chain of security, tackling terrorism seemed to have become a tricky task.

Now, according to a Times of India report, students from the prestigious Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay (IIT-B) are on their way to setting up a research facility in the country, which would aid the police and the paramilitary security forces with state-of-art-technology, which would enable them to view live images at their command station. The electrical engineering department of IIT-B have been credited to be the brainchild behind the concept. The report further quoted a student, who's a part of the project saying that ultra-broadband services will power this technology set-up.


Interestingly, to further the project, IIT-B has collaborated with the newly setup anti-terror force in the country. Although the entire project is still in its developmental stages, it has certainly made the masses hopeful. After all, technology, which has helped the masses ease their life will now help in the fight against terrorism, too.
