Pakistan a country that is at the forefront of combating terrorism have lost more than 50,000 people since the events of 9/11, this war which is against an ideology can only be won through patience and state of the art technology, Pakistan is a country lacking proper infrastructure that is essential to limit and eventually eradicate these terrorist activities, It is, therefore, essential to nip this plague of terrorism in the bud before it spreads to all corners of the world. The aim of our work is to propose a infrastructure that can prevent and reduce the impact of terrorist attacks by providing prompt medical services to the society, prison security , a Network of UWB based detectors to detect explosives through image processing, Integration of institutions with Exit Control to prevent culprits from escaping the country, and a anti-terrorism wing under one umbrella, a nerve center that will control the flow of information and will make sure that in case of disaster those behind the activities not only be apprehended but also their terrorist network be identified so no such attacks can happen again, since biometrics of every citizen is registered in NADRA it would be easy to track and nab the criminals. Besides reducing the effects of such activities other responsibility of this infrastructure would be to catch the culprits without any cultural implications before they could carry out attacks against the state and its people. Through such an infrastructure we will see a substantial drop in terrorist activities and it would also be useful in identifying terrorist cells. Once successful it can be implemented in all those areas of the world that are affected by the same problem. Keywords: Terrorism, Ultra-wideband (UWB) Image processing, Preventive Infrastructure, Communications Networks to identify Terrorism, Tackling Terrorism, Communications Infrastructure.
