Indrajaal's design leverages 9-10 modern technologies powered by AI, Cyber security and robotics, capable of identifying, assessing, deciding, acting and evolving autonomously in real-time
India could soon have its own indigenous, unified, autonomous drone defence dome in place to throttle incidents such as the June 27 attack on the Jammu Air Force base using drones.
Developed by Hyderabad-based Grene Robotics and called Indrajaal, it can protect an area of 1,000-2,000 sq km per system against threats such as UAVs, incoming weapons, loitering munitions, low RCS targets autonomously. The company early this year signed a memorandum of understanding with navratan defence PSU Bharat Electronics Ltd (BEL) to develop jointly an air defence system that brings isolated Man-portable-air-defence (MANPAD) operators into networked environment.
