On 14 September, Saudi Arabia launched the deadliest attack on its oil facilities. The shocking attack, which saw a small army of drones attacking two major oil plants, destroyed about 50 percent of the country’s global supply. Questions arose with many experts whether India would be able to prevent or pre-empt such an attack?
India Today TV has learned that the roadmap to secure India’s civil airports and prevent such drone attacks is in advanced stages. Sources said that IdeaForg, an alumni company of IIT Bombay, has been tasked by the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) to come up with a solution by the end of the year.
Sources said that IdeaForge, which designed the Netra drone with DRDO, was authorized by the CISF after being dissatisfied with the results of the field made by anti-Western and domestic drone manufacturers. Top sources told India Today that “many companies came in for field trials, including Israeli, German and Indian companies, each with state-of-the-art technology.”
So CISF raced the makers of the indigenous drone Netra – IdeaForge. Talking on the phone from Singapore, IdeaForge CEO Ankit Mehta agreed that “there are currently no anti-drone solutions. Anti-drone [technology] is mostly indiscriminate jamming technology for GPS and communications. So We are optimizing the work to be deeply integrated. ” And reduce the system.
