DefOS powered Autonomous AUAV or Anti Drone Weapon protects Red Fort

Def OS platform powers the Anti UAV / Anti Drone system for CHESS / DRDO Lab's laser weapon. The AUAV solution is built on the Grene DefOS platform and integrates Radars, Electro-Optics, ESM systems, third party Weapon systems as well as Jammers. The highly compact interface and coupled display systems enable both local as well as networked command and control operations.


NEW DELHI: An anti-drone system developed by the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) was deployed near the Red Fort on Saturday on the occasion of the 74th Independence Day.

The DRDO-developed system can detect and jam micro drones up to 3 kilometres and use laser to bring down a target up to 1-2.5 kilometres depending on the wattage of laser weapon, officials had earlier said.

It can be an effective counter to increased drone-based activity in the western and northern sectors of the country.

Earlier, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had hoisted the national flag and addressed the nation from the ramparts of the Red Fort. He said that it was an occasion to remember freedom fighters who laid down their lives for the freedom of the country.
