In today’s modern battlefield, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) or drones have emerged as a significant threat, capable of performing various tasks such as intelligence gathering, surveillance, and payload delivery to targets. To combat this evolving threat, the Indian Ministry of Defence (MoD) has launched the iDEX challenge aimed at developing an Anti-Drone System specifically designed for integration with armored vehicles like the T-72, T-90, BMP, and Arjun tanks.

Challenges Posed by UAVs

The Anti-Drone System under the iDEX challenge is tasked with detecting, identifying/classifying, tracking, and neutralizing enemy drones’ radio frequency (RF) transmissions without compromising the existing platforms’ integrity.

Detection Capability

The system must have the ability to detect RF transmissions emitted by enemy drones within a minimum range of 5 kilometers. This detection mechanism should be highly sensitive and reliable, ensuring early identification of potential threats.

Identification and Classification

Upon detection, the system should accurately identify and classify the type of drone present in the area. This capability is crucial for distinguishing between friendly and hostile UAVs, thus preventing the accidental engagement of allied assets.

Real-Time Tracking

Real-time tracking of enemy drones is essential for maintaining situational awareness and effectively countering threats. The anti-drone system should utilize advanced tracking algorithms and sensor fusion techniques to precisely monitor the movements of targeted UAVs.

Neutralization Techniques

The primary objective of the system is to neutralize the threat posed by enemy drones through jamming or disrupting their communication links. This requires the integration of sophisticated electronic warfare capabilities capable of disrupting drone control signals without causing collateral damage to friendly forces or civilian infrastructure.

Integration Challenges

One of the primary challenges in developing an anti-drone system for armored vehicles lies in ensuring seamless integration with diverse platforms such as the T-72, T-90, BMP, and Arjun tanks. The system must be designed to operate within the constraints of these platforms while maximizing effectiveness and minimizing interference with other onboard systems.

In conclusion, the iDEX challenge presents a significant opportunity to develop an Anti-Drone System that can effectively counter the growing threat posed by UAVs on the modern battlefield. The successful development and integration of such a system will enhance the defensive capabilities of armored vehicles, ensuring greater safety and security for military personnel and assets.
