“Now, OL could be used in each other`s businesses to improve our information exchange architecture. In short, our military cooperation is progressing well. The agreement comes just days before the U.S. presidential election scheduled for November 3. Topics covered: bilateral, regional and global groupings and agreements in which India participates and/or harm India`s interests. This agreement would facilitate the exchange of geographic data between India and the United States for both military and civilian purposes. Since 2016, India has signed three fundamental agreements: the agreement was signed at the U.S.-India Ministerial Dialogue in New Delhi, India, to discuss bilateral defence issues. Ministers also discussed proposals such as capacity building and joint cooperation actions in third countries. They expect the proposals to move forward. Beca is the latest of four basic defence agreements between the two countries, which allow for a much higher level of military cooperation in the areas of technology, interoperability and armament manufacturing.
New Delhi: India and the United States intend to sign an important pact, the Basic Exchange and Cooperation Agreement (BECA), for geographic cooperation before the NOVEMBER 3 presidential elections. Under BECA, the United States exchanges technical and procedural information on standardizing methods, specifications and formats for collecting, processing and producing GEOINT information with India. These include tools and models for processing GPS data and transforming width, length and altitude coordinates across different frames of reference. With GPS-derived heights, an accurate geoid model will help determine the direction of water flows. The GNSS antenna calibration for the antenna reference point (ARP) and the northern reference point (PNR) must be part of the GEOINT to improve the baseline data. In the face of rising tensions between India and China following the deaths of 20 soldiers in Ladakh four months ago, the pact is expected to help India narrow the military divide with Beijing. News of the agreement was strongly criticized by the Chinese government Global Times, which noted earlier this month that “New Delhi… “hopes to show China its military strength and the importance of U.S. connections to the largest size.” This article is based on “The Delhi-DC strategic dance” published in the Hindustan Times on 27.10.2020.
It discusses the impact of the signing of the basic agreement on trade and cooperation between India and the United States on the signing of the Exchange and Cooperation Agreement in the context of geographic data research (BASIC). India and the United States have already signed three important basic agreements: the General Security of Military Information Agreement (GSOMIA) in 2002, the Logistics Exchange Agreement (LEMOA) in 2016 and the Communications Compatibility and Security Agreement (COMCASA) in 2018. These included areas of security and military information, compatibility, security and logistics exchanges, and communications. The signing of a number of defence agreements will enable India and the United States to act together and position themselves in a better position to shape the regional and global environment. Critical analysis. The defence ministers of India and the United States have signed a Fund Exchange Agreement (BECA) for geographic cooperation. The United States is very interested in the fact that India has signed the last basic agreement, the Basic Exchange and Cooperation Agreement for Geo-Spatial Cooperation (BECA), to the next Indian side and other party. 2/2 Ministerial Dialogue. Details: The signing of the BECA marks the end of the long period of mutual trust and provides the conditions for broader security cooperation.
In this Indo-American agreement, the geographical area of GEOINT information and data is initially limited to the Indian subcontinent and neighbouring regions. However, there is a probability of a clause in which this term can be changed (as agreed by mutual agreement) when India asks for defence, humanitarian aid
