Godrej is known to produce high-quality lockers and keys to protect valuable items from the clutches of thieves and robbers. Now the company has entered the weapon manufacturing sector through Atma Nirbhar Bharat with its latest anti-drone system called CHIMERA.
Godrej’s latest CHIMERA, which the company developed in cooperation with a French company called CERBAIR, is now the talk among defense experts.
CHIMERA was designed to protect the country against the rising threat of drones from enemy countries. The anti-drone system is important to thwart Pakistan’s attempts to smuggle drugs and weapons across the border, using drones. Moreover, enemy drones are a high risk to the security of our country’s VVIPs.
One of the best features of CHIMERA is that it is portable and handy. It looks like a gun and can be carried on the shoulders of a soldier. The CHIMERA can destroy an enemy drone within a range of 1 km.
A soldier will also carry an antenna in his bag to track enemy drones and block its radio frequency. Once this is blocked, the enemy drone either falls to the ground or will retreat to the point from where it took off.
Godrej’s senior manager, Suman Mohapatra, said that the CHIMERA is capable to bring down any unmanned aerial vehicle.
The company is also manufacturing an anti-drone system that can be erected at one spot. This is used for protecting VVIPs. Currently, some of the security agencies in the country have begun to use this for the security of VVIPs. However, the company declined to reveal the names of those agencies for security reasons.
