In what can prove to be a great aid for the Indian forces in dealing with hostage situations, India’s premier government R&D body DRDO has developed a radar that can look through a wall.
The Through Barrier Imaging Radar, named ‘Divyachakshu’ (divine eye), has been developed by Defence Research and Development Organisation’s (DRDO) Electronics & Radar Development Establishment (LRDE) based in Bangalore and is going through development trials now.
It can look though walls of 20-30 cm thickness made of any material, by using thermal imaging.”The radar can produce images from the other side of the barrier up to a distance of 20 metres. It catches the thermal signatures and movements in a room can be clearly seen,” a scientist working on the project told IANS on condition of anonymity.
- The radar tracks heat on the other side of the wall and gives real time thermal image, which can disclose the movement, number of people and other important information about the situation on the other side of the barrier.
- The Defence Research and Development Organisation is an agency of the Republic of India, charged with the military’s research and development, headquartered in New Delhi, India.
So lets do:
- Who is the Chairman of DRDO?
- Which country developed thermal imaging radar to look through walls?
