It is learned from the informationization construction meeting of the Beijing Military Area Command (MAC) that in recent years, the Inner Mongolia Military Command (MC) has made great efforts to enhance its comprehensive frontier defense and control capacity which is based on information system and steadily promoted the interconnection of information networks, the installation of monitoring systems, the construction of self-defense works, the completion of training facilities and the run-through of frontier defense and patrol road. The comprehensive frontier defense and control capacity was greatly boosted.

So far, along the borderline of Inner Mongolia, the Inner Mongolia MC established a 3,200-kilometer-long patrol road for driving, a 4,000-kilometer-long wire fence, and a 3,500-kilometer-long frontier defense highway with numerous duty performance supportive facilities. Apart from very few complicated sections, the whole frontier defense patrol road for driving was put into operation. The conditions for performing duties and controlling border were greatly improved.

The frontline frontier defense companies now have basic access to “purified drinking water”, “warm-keeping house” and “in-season vegetables”. The working and living conditions for frontier defense officers and men have undergone tremendous changes.

In recent years, the Inner Mongolia MC and Inner Mongolia governments at all levels increased financial input year by year to complete the construction of 8,000-odd-kilometer-long optical communication cable, 50 monitoring centers/posts and the “Grassland 110” communication network. Currently, the information network has covered the total length of the Inner Mongolia borderline. Real-time monitoring of major sections such as ports has been realized through systems of command and control, border monitoring and information transmission. The capacity of emergency handling has been enhanced.
