Hyderabad based company Grene Robotics has claimed that it has designed and developed a 100 percent indigenous unified, distributed and wide-area autonomous drone defence dome. The system is called Indrajaal.

According to a press release the dome will protect a large area of 1,000-2,000 square km per system against threats such as Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) incoming weapons, loitering munitions, low-radar cross section (RCS) targets autonomously.

Grene Robotics’s claim comes at a time when the Jammu Air Force Station is attacked by a cutting-edge technology like drone to drop explosives at sensitive place. The Indrajaal defence sector can embark on responsive and autonomous systems to be prepared for modern warfare.

” About six to seven sectorally deployed Indrajaal systems with their seamless connectivity can protect the Indian western border,” said the press release.

Grene Robotics is a company being runned by defence experts.Wing Commander (retired) MVN Sai is the CEO of the company. He , “I urge the defence leadership to take an integrated and comprehensive approach against all the UAVs, loiter ammunition swarm drones and low RCS threats with indigenously developed Autonomous Defence Systems. Conventional defences will be overwhelmed in a swarm attack scenario and an AI-Enabled Autonomous Dome with its own ecosystem of sensors and processing is the way forward.”

According to the press release, Indrajaal system uses a combination of nine to ten modern technologies powered by AI, Cyber Security, and Robotics to identify, assess, decide, act and evolve autonomously in real-time. Whether the threat is single or multiple or a combination of UAVs, low-RCS, loitering munitions and such, Indrajaal is capable of countering all such threats.
