The new bilateral agreement would have access to better cooperation between India and the United States between India and the United States on the part of the Air Force. The facility will enable combat aircraft to achieve their objectives effectively and efficiently. In short, BECA will provide Indian military systems with a high-quality GPS to navigate with real-time intelligence to precisely attack the enemy. In addition to ship navigation, aircraft flight, war battle and target position, geo-intelligence is also essential to respond to natural disasters.

Given the current geopolitical situation, these data will be relevant to both the northern and western borders of India. As this is a bilateral agreement, India should also share similar data with the United States. “I see that the agreement goes beyond tactical objectives and involves the exchange of geospatial intelligence information on the government`s use for defence and other purposes. The United States will exchange technical and procedural information with India on methods, specifications and formats for the collection, processing and production of geo-intelligence information,” he said. Beca is considered one of the few basic agreements that the United States signs with its close partners.

The agreement concerns the exchange of geo-intelligence information for defence and other purposes by governments. India and the United States have signed a military agreement on the exchange of sensitive satellite data amid Delhi`s tense border dispute with Beijing. Previously, India signed three basic agreements: 2016 the Logistics Exchange Memorandum of Agreement (LEMOA); 2018 the Communications Compatibility and Security Agreement (COMCASA); In 2019, the Industrial Security Annex (ISA) – the extension of the General Security of Military Information Agreement (GSOMIA), signed in 2002, was adopted. LEMOA is very useful for cooperation between the Indian and American navies, as the two countries work closely together in the Indo-Pacific space. To put the usefulness of this agreement in simple terms, it is like being able to stop in a friend`s garage or workshop to refuel your car or have it repaired if you are away from your own home or workshop. In particular, the BECA, which is the last of the four basic agreements to strengthen defence relations, would improve space cooperation between India and the United States and should help improve the accuracy of India`s missile systems.

Jaishankar. The two countries have signed a total of five agreements as part of the 2-2 ministerial dialogue. Bilateral agreements included the Basic Exchange and Cooperation Agreement (BECA). It will allow the United States to “provide advanced navigational aids and avionics on U.S.-delivered aircraft bound for India,” an Indian defense source told Reuters, which also means the United States can install high-quality navigation devices on the plane it delivers to India. But because of China`s obvious and current danger, Washington`s strategic embrace by New Delhi is the obvious result.
