Anti Drone system developed by India

Anti Drone system developed by India

  • DRDO has developed an anti-drone system to neutralize enemy drone attacks.
  • The Indigenous Drone Technology is capable of counter-attacks including detection, Soft Kill (for jamming the communication links of Drone) and Hard Kill (Laser based on hard kill to destroy the Drone) of enemy Drones.

The Anti-Drone System Technology and how it works

  • Anti-drone systems are used to detect and/or intercept unwanted drones and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).
  • Hostile drones may be used to deploy explosives, smuggle contraband or gather intelligence on sensitive assets, and the proliferation of low-cost UAVs has led to an increase in incidents.
  • Anti-drone technology is deployed to protect areas such as airports, critical infrastructure, large public spaces such as stadiums, military installations and battlefield sites.
  • Electro-optical (EO) and infrared (IR) sensors can be used to detect drones based on their visual and heat signatures, respectively.
  • These sensors may need to be paired with machine vision and artificial intelligence algorithms that can reduce the risk of false positives and false negatives.
  • EO/IR gimbals for anti-drone systems are available that combine multiple cameras into one payload and can be mounted on a fixed site or moving vehicle.
  • Acoustic CUAS detection systems compare the noise made by drone propulsion systems to a database of sounds. Their accuracy can be affected by other noise in the vicinity.
  • The System is already demonstrated to Armed Services and other internal security agencies.
  • The indigenous DRDO Counter-Drone Technology is transferred to M/s BEL. Simultaneously Transfer of Technology (ToT) of the Counter-Drone System is offered to other companies.

Cosmic Distances

No human probe has travelled much beyond the Solar System, yet we are able to measure distances across billions of light-years. The space beyond Earth is so incredibly vast that units of measure, which are convenient in everyday lives, can become gigantic. Distances between the planets, and especially between the stars, become so big when e

Devil Comet

Mount Everest-sized Devil comet hurtling in Earth’s direction could explode today. Pons-Brooks Comet - Comet 13P/Pons-Brooks, also called the Devil Comet, is about the size of Mount Everest and it is hurtling towards Earth. After an outburst in July, scientists believe that the comet could explode once again today. Ice volcanoe

Kakad Bhairav or Bhilat Baba BHILS

A stone deity worshipped by the Bhils in Madhya Pradesh’s Bagh was recently proved to be a fossilized dinosaur egg. Just like their ancestors worshipped ancient stones as deities, generations of Bhils had worshipped this sunbaked, reddish-brown Kakad Bhairav or Bhilat Baba. Sacrifices of chickens and sheep marked their whispered pleas
