IIT-Madras researchers have developed an electronic warfare model that could help the Armed Forces track down unregulated drones and secure air space. There has been a detection of unauthorised UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicle) hovering around the Indian airspace. Upon closer examination, it has been confirmed that these are rogue drones that have the capacity to set off a lethal airstrike. The drone model weighs about 4 kg and can carry a fully-loaded rifle.
