Underwater Sensors to be Installed for Providing Sea Border Security

Underwater sensing devices will be installed by the military forces of South Korea near the North Korean sea border for providing security against the submarines from the North.

According to a report by the Maeil business newspaper, the military will be installing sensing devices adjoining the Yellow Sea frontier islands, where the disastrous naval battles occurred in 1999, 2002 and in November 2009.

A senior military officer commented that, they have decided to place numerous underwater sensing units in order to enhance the defense potentiality in crucial northwestern islands including Baengnyeong and Yeonpyeong islands succeeding the disastrous sinking of the Cheonan warship taking many lives. The regulatory centre for evaluating the functioning of the sensors will be situated at Baengnyeong island, nearby the North border, according to the reports.

Cross-border tensions have been acute since the North's shelling.
