The Indian Air Force has received the first set of the ‘Dronaam’ counter-unmanned aircraft systems (C-UASs) built by Indian firm Gurutvaa Systems (IAF). According to Harshad Dave, director of Gurutvaa Systems, the IAF received an undetermined number of Dronaam C-UAS System in May under a contract signed in August 2021.
Within nine months, the system was delivered. In October 2021, the system received design review, and the first prototype trials were held in December 2021, according to Dave. IAF launched a second experiment of a manufacturing standard system in February 2022, which included suggestions from the first trial.
Dave went on to say that the Dronaam system was created entirely in-house and has shown to be effective in disrupting GNSS (global navigation satellite system) navigation and jamming radio frequencies used by unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).
