An Indian startup’s “sharp-eye” technology can prevent Uri-like militant attacks

Tonbo Imaging is a Bengaluru-based startup that designs, builds and deploys advanced imaging and sensor systems to sense, understand, and control complex military environments. At 5.30am on Sept. 18, 2016, four militants from across the border in Pakistan sprang a nasty surprise on Indian soil, staging a pre-dawn ambush on an army base in Uri, 6km from the Line of Control (LoC). Uri also demonstrated emphatically that defending India’s outer military posts, which are increasingly becoming targets for cross-border militants from Pakistan, is a tough job despite its large defense outlays.
