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 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, and 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.
