TOP 7 Improvisations in new model of DRDO’s Daksh

Defence Research and Development Organisation’s (DRDO’s) indigenous robot Daksh has not just become lighter, faster and rugged, but has also been equipped with Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear (CBRN) hazard detection mechanisms. Daksh, which has been developed by DRDO’s Pune-based lab Research and Development Establishment, Engineers (R&DE) located in Vishrantwadi, is primarily designed to detect and recover Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs). It was inducted in the Indian Army around 2011.

  1. The newer version of Daksh is made of aluminium alloy as against the older version.
  2. The use of new material has not just reduced the weight but has also made it more rugged.
  3. To improve speed the new Daksh has used custom-made motors that can increased the speed by three times.
  4. The new Daksh has been integrated with DRDO’s Unmanned Areal Vehicle (UAV) Netra, and the integrated system is being called CBRN Remotely Operated Platform (ROP).
  5. In case of a radiation hazard, the radiation detection unit fitted on Netra can be flown to the affected area. Netra model being used for this platform has an increased range of four kilometres and double the flying time.
  6. This system will not just be useful for the armed forces, but also the paramilitary forces operating in areas where the nature of conflict is different. There will be demand for this version of Daksh from the different security agencies.
  7. The Faster,lighter version of the ROV along with added advantage also has enhanced capabilities that will be certainly useful in the backdrop of changing nature of warfare in insurgency affected areas,especially with increased threat of dirty bombs,which use radioactive material.
