UAV built by IITB grads
to provide security at Rath Yatra

When the 136th edition of the Jagannath Rath Yatra starts next week in Ahmadabad, the police of Gujarat will have the comfort of an extra pair of eyes manning the security of pilgrims from the skies.

The police will for the first time deploy two unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), which they bought in May, for the yatra. The ‘eye in the sky’ project will give the state police a bird’s eye view in terms of surveillance, according to DIG (modernization) Rajiv Ranjan Bhagat.

The UAVs, termed Netra, were developed by IIT Bombay graduates and have attracted the attention of many security organizations, including the CRPF.
