Last Sunday's drone attack on Jammu air base by the Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) terror organization has highlighted the necessity for India to obtain the newest anti-drone technologies, as terrorists and Maoists have begun employing stand-off weaponry at the request of their handlers across borders.
The strike has also shown the harsh reality to national security strategists and air combatants who believed that armed drones would not be able to withstand the tough situation of the Line of Control (LoC) between India and Pakistan, where both nations have deployed air defence radars.The attack on Sunday demonstrated how often a simple system spending about six lakh rupees may do significant damage to (IAF) vital infrastructure.
For the past few years, the national security council secretariat has been aware of the threat presented by terror drones to Indian security, but Indian procurement processes are so cumbersome that just freedom of information request (RFI) for anti-drone equipment has been launched. A prototype anti-drone system has also been created by the Defense Research and Development Organization, although it has yet to be evaluated on the LoC or the Line of Actual Control (LAC).
At January 2021, the DRDO system was tested at the NSG site in Manesar, although the users must yet take a final decision.Though the two drones had been discovered and assassinated by the BSF, are Indian security forces equipped for swarm drone strikes on Indian key infrastructure along the border? Because the controller sits from across the border and accomplishes the goal without violating the LoC by burrowing under the border barrier, an armed drone is an inexpensive choice for anti-India terror organisations to target. India has almost no choice but to quickly buy anti-drone technology from the private sector, while the government continues to build its own. Terrorists' flawless drone strike would not only derail the hard-won LoC truce, but will also pit the two bitter enemies against one other.
