India’s 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. With focus of military operations in urban areas the demand for unmanned systems is high,” S. Christopher, DRDO Director said during Aero India 2017 air show Wednesday.
The DRDO will have a contest in May this year to encourage School and College kids to come up with ideas for Unmanned systems, Chirstopher added.
Unmanned systems by DRDO include Daksh, Gun Mounted Remotely Operated Vehicle (GMROV), Chemical, Biological, Nuclear and Explosive ROV (CBRNE ROV), Confined Space ROV (CSROV), Mobile Autonomous Robotic System (MARS) and Mobile Autonomous Stabilization and Slewing (MASS).
