After the abolition of article 370 and the raise of curfew on Kashmir valley; the conditions between India and Pakistan has become sensitive. The net condition has resulted so severe that it has raised the issues of safety and security. Thus, in order to be cautious from attacks and simultaneously to respond, Pakistan installs 9 high-tech Radar systems amidst tensions with India.

The current worsening conditions between two neighboring countries over Kashmir issue has evoked the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) to take precautionary measures by installing nine state-of-the-art surveillance radars at various airports to defense the country’s airspace. These high-tech Radars has an ability to locate and identify airspace from far distance. 

The different locations where these radar systems have been established includes Jinnah’s Terminal Karachi, Allama Iqbal International Airport Lahore, and at New Airport Islamabad. Together with this, Radars have also been situated on some critical locations of Pasni, Rojhan and Lakpass area of Balochistan.
Three of the stations are equipped with primary surveillance while six radars have secondary surveillance facility, which were made in the Czech Republic and Spain respectively. 

A CAA official said that integration of technology will improve airspace security. These new radar systems are fully integrated with the Central Air Traffic Management system. 

Moreover, it was also added by the CAA official that putting forward current situation, installing Radar Systems has become dire need of an hour. Prior to this Kashmir conflict, India has attempted to enter in Pakistan’s boundaries through airspace. The recent incident we can recall is of shooting down two Indian jets and the arrest of Indian wing commander Abhinandan Varthaman by Pakistani Military in the attempt of entering Pakistani frontiers
