The Defence Research and Development Organization (DRDO) has developed an anti-drone system that has been deployed in Delhi this year for Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s security to protect against any drone attack.
This anti-drone system has been indigenously developed by DRDO. It can detect and jam micro-drones at a distance of up to 3 km and use laser to bring down a target up to 1-2.5 kilometres depending on the wattage of laser weapon.

An anti-drone system developed by the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) was deployed in Delhi for Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s safety this year. The system is equipped to instantaneously detect and identify drone threats and terminate them.
This anti-drone system is capable of neutralising micro-drones through either jamming of command and control links or by damaging electronics of drones through laser-based directed energy weapons. A drone or an unmanned aerial vehicle refer to an unpiloted aircraft or spacecraft.
