    The Army is looking for startups to create satellite-based systems to track and monitor troop movements.

    In December 2022, the Defence India Start-up Challenge (DISC) invited Indian startups to develop satellite-based systems to track and monitor troop movements and facilities in remote areas.

    Indian Army troops who move around the country on a daily basis are sometimes not communicable due to poor network and inhospitable terrain, making the troops vulnerable because command does not know their exact location.

    The army is considering developing an IoT-based sensor-control loop that operates via satellite link and can provide machine-to-machine (M2M) communication to relay sensor data to a central location for archiving and analytics.

    The system should be capable of performing automatic control actions without human intervention in near real-time.

    The other system under consideration is a secure geo-satellite supported IoT platform for real-time monitoring of remote facilities and assets from dedicated control centres operated by the Army.
