BEL Wins Indian Navy Contract to Indigenously Develop Laser Dazzlers
A few days ago, DRDO had achieved a major milestone through the maiden launch of Medium Range Surface to Air Missile (MRSAM), Army Version
The Laser Dazzler is used as a non-lethal method for warning and stopping suspicious vehicles/boats/aircrafts/UAVs/pirates etc. from approaching secured areas during both day and night. It is capable of dazzle and thereby suppress the person’s/optical sensor’s action with disability glare in case of non-compliance to orders. It disorient/ confuse/blind a person temporarily. It also dazzles and distract aircraft/UAVs. It is a portable, shoulder operated and ruggedized for military use in adverse environmental conditions. Laser dazzler technology was developed by Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO).
Government perceives that the product, which is indigenously designed and developed for the first time for the Armed Forces, will support the ‘Atmanirbhar Bharat’ initiative of Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi.
DRDO is also fueling its efforts towards self-reliance of the country in the defense segment. A few days ago, DRDO had achieved a major milestone through the maiden launch of Medium Range Surface to Air Missile (MRSAM), Army Version. The launch was successfully done from Integrated Test Range, Chandipur, off the Coast of Odisha around 1600 hrs. The program became a huge success as the missile completely destroyed a high speed unmanned aerial target which was mimicking an aircraft with a direct hit.
