The key features of the weapon system include a secure communication link, effective recoil management system, high firing angular resolution and vision-based target detection and tracking.In January this year, the National Security Guards had awarded a Rs 1,49,86,000 worth contract to Bengaluru-based Accord Software & System for the procurement of indigenous Counter Drone Technology/System – Indigenous Low Power GNSS Jammer(OMNI).As per the National Counter Rogue Drone Guidelines, 2019, the counter-drone infrastructure needs to adopt diversified defensive strategies in the five concentric circles of prevention, deterrence, denial, detection, interruption and destruction. Early detection and identification are key to effectively neutralise the UAV threat.Jammu drone attack Why India needs Israels technology as reality of UAV strikes sets inTwo consecutive blasts were heard at the IAF-controlled area of Jammu airport. News18Why Sparrowhawk may be helpful for India to deal with micro-drone threatAs part of an operational pilot programme to employ C-UAV for the US Special Forces, Israel’s Ministry of Defense and the US Department of Defense have collaborated on developing a system that would neutralise threats from not so high above the sky.The result of such a joint effort was the “Skylord system, also known as Sparrowhawk, that has been developed by the Directorate of Defense Research and Development (DDR&D) of Israel’s Ministry of Defense, drone developer XTEND, and the Combating Terrorism Technical Support Office of the US Department of Defense”.According to The Defense Post, Sparrowhawk’s augmented reality interface allows the operator to perform complex tasks by remotely watching the area of the drone’s operation “through the glider’s eyes” and to intercept various aerial threats from a safe distance through the deployment of payloads.The Skylord system mobile C-UAS inspection and interception system allows close examination of aerial threats ranging from terrorist drones (munition equipped and surveillance-based) to incendiary fixed-wing models airplanes and other malicious aerial threats and deal with the situation accordingly. It can carry up to 1 kg of variable payloads and allows the operator to feel the area “through the skimmer’s eyes”.What is SMASH 2000 PLUS anti-drone system for the Indian Navy?In December 2020, the Indian Navy decided to procure SMASH 2000 rifle sights, manufactured by Israeli company Smart Shooter, as protection against drone attacks. The SMASH 2000 PLUS, which the Indian Navy will have, is based on the SMASH 2000 system but includes a Counter UAS Mode that provides for the kinetic elimination of small, low-flying drones.As per open-source data available from Sharp Shooter, the SMASH 2000 PLUS is equipped with:• multiple operational modes like see-through reflex sight (red-dot) for rapid-fire• day mode re-control assisted shots using see-through projected markers• night mode re-control assisted shots using low light video display• drone kill mode where drones can be locked, tracked and eliminated.There is also an integrated re-control computer, user selection of ballistics data for different rifles and/or ammunition types, upgradable ballistics formats and external add-on to in-service weapons. Among the currently supported weapons and ammunitions include M4 weapon (5.56mm) – M193 / M855 and rechargeable battery – 72 hours or up to 3,600 SMASH assisted shots and NIR flashlight (optional activation).What lies ahead• There is no dearth of incidents where drones were used to target vital assets and personnel worldwide and it poses a serious challenge for India’s national security.• With the advancement of technology, these threats will only amplify. Whether it is the military or the civil society, no one is safe from this new trend of security threat.• Drones are no longer mere nuisance, they can be a catalyst of destruction when they fall into wrong hands.
