DRDO new Anti-drone system spotted in Red Fort


DRDO  anti-drone system can detect & jam micro drones up to 3 Kms and use the laser to bring down a target up to 1- 2.5 Kms depending on the wattage of laser weapon.
As Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed the nation on 74th Independence Day, he was surrounded by a posse of security and state-of-the-art security apparatus.

DRDO anti-drone system deployed near Red Fort today on Independence Day.
Among them was an anti-drone system developed by the Defence Research and Development Organisation or DRDO which was stationed near the Red Fort.
As per the DRDO, this anti-drone system is capable of neutralising micro-drones through either jamming of command and control links or by damaging electronics of drones through laser-based directed energy weapons
An anti-drone system developed by the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) will be deployed in Delhi for Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s safety this year. The system is equipped to instantaneously detect and identify drone threats and terminate them.
As per the DRDO, this anti-drone system is capable of neutralising micro-drones through either jamming of command and control links or by damaging electronics of drones through laser-based directed energy weapons. A drone or an unmanned aerial vehicle refers to an unpiloted aircraft or spacecraft.
“The comprehensive solution is to tackle the problem that drones may pose to national security agencies,” DRDO said in a statement.
Besides, this indigenously developed system can detect and jam micro-drones at a distance of up to 3 km and lase a target 1-1.25 km far depending on the wattage of the laser weapon. According to DRDO, this solution can be an effective counter to increased drone-based activity in India’s western and northern sectors.
Recently, the Armed Forces proposed arming its 100 Heron drones with missiles to carry out offence. The Indian Navy has also received a nod to upgrade its existing Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) and buy 10 new surveillance drones to closely monitor Indian waters.
