Indian DRDO’s Research and Innovation Centre has developed micro-devices and micro unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) using high-end Micro Electro Mechanical Systems (MEMS) for eavesdropping and surveillance along border areas and internal security.
“The devices in turn depends on Integrated Circuit Fabrication (ICF) technology. The devices have applications for the defence and paramilitary force for border surveillance and internal security purposes. It will be very helpful for the defence forces as it will consume less power and also handy in remote and inaccessible areas," director of Research and Innovation Centre V Natarajan was quoted as saying by Times of India Thursday.
Natarajan was speaking on the sidelines of a three-day international conference on Materials Processing and Applications organised by VIT University.
The device has been put in a field trial. "The device developed for eavesdropping will pick sounds by different means. It can detect very low frequency and vibration by MEMS sensor. Even a vehicle moving at a long distance will be detected by the ground vibration. It can also be used in submarines to pick communications through SONAR (sound, navigation and ranging)," he said.
The micro UAVs are also being developed by the centre, he said, adding, "It will be equipped with advanced surveillance cameras and an eavesdropping device."
The communications picked through the devices transferred to the centre, where it will be decoded to help the defence and paramilitary forces.
He, however, said that they had been facing challenges as there were several languages spoken by anti-social elements and terrorists. "We are in the process of developing technology to decode data (communications in different language and dialects)," he further said.
India's Defence Research and Development Organization (DRDO) has considered to produce 10 unmanned aircraft similar to long-endurance combat drone Rustom-II for induction into the Indian armed forces in the future. “We have decided to produce 10 pilot less or unmanned aircraft like Rustom-II, aimed at giving a boost to Indias development programme for UAV,” DRDO Director S Christopher was quoted as saying by
India's Defence Research and Development Organization (DRDO) has fitted its own airborne early warning and control system (AEW & CS) on a modified Embraer ERJ 145 aircraft slated to be inducted into the Indian Air Force in two months. The AEW & CS is basically‘sharp-seeing and listening radar that can look out deep across enemy territory for any incoming threat without itself crossing over
Indias Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO) have conducted the proof firing of Armament system for 155 mm x 52 calibre Advanced Towed Artillery Gun System (ATAGS) during the technical trials conducted recently at Proof & Experimental Establishment (PXE), Balasore. ATAGS is fully indigenous towed artillery gun system project undertaken in mission mode by DRDO as a part of artillery modernisation programme of Indian Army
Indias Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) has signed an agreement with IIT (Indian Institute of Technology)-Bombay and Madras to establish a bi-nodal Centre of Propulsion Technology (CoPT) at the two institutions. The initiative is aimed at achieving synergy between DRDO and Indian Institutes of Technology for channelizing the research efforts towards developing products and related critical aerospace technologies, a Defence release said
A technical snag with the battery of Indias indigenous nuclear-capable intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) Agni-V has caused the delay in its fourth test. “It has been delayed because of a technical snag,” Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) chief S Christopher was quoted as saying by IANS
India's Defense Research Development Organization will hand over Sonar Dome to the defense ministry Tuesday. The sonar dome will be delivered to Mazagaon docks
Indias Defense Research Development Organization (DRDO) will increase its focus on developing unmanned platforms for land, sea and air operations in keeping with global trends. “DRDO has developed two robots “Daksh Mini” and “Daksh Scout” that are capable of detecting and defusing improvised explosive devices (IED) on aircraft and trains
Indias Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) has developed two robots “Daksh Mini” and “Daksh Scout” that are capable of detecting and defusing improvised explosive devices (IED) on aircraft and trains. The two robots, which are easy to carry and use in any situation, are result of two years extensive research,
Indias Defense Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) will test launch its long range nuke-capable submarine-launched ballistic missile (SLBM) K-4 from an underwater platform at the end of this month. The indigenously built underwater missile, having a strike range of around 3,500 km, will be test fired from a submerged pontoon, which is almost identical to a submarine on January 31,
The Indian Army has given a go-ahead for the development of Advanced Towed Artillery Gun System (ATAGS) by Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO) in collaboration with private firms. The 155mm ATAGS (Advanced Towed Artillery Gun System) is designed by the DRDOs Armament Research and Development Establishment (ARDE) in Pune
Defence Research and Development Organization (DRDO) has developed Door Breaching Device that can be used from a distance of 100 metres for rapid entry. Developed by DRDOs Terminal Ballistic Research Laboratory (TBRL), the device is capable of breaching various kinds of doors like thick metal door and thick wooden doors by remote action, TBRLs Chandigarh-based scientist Yogeshwar Nath, who was also part of the developers team was quoted as saying by
Indian PES University students have won a Rs 2.2 crore project (US $324,000) that will assist in identifying suspicious ships through satellite imaging, from Defence Research and Development Organization (DRDO)
