    Buoyed by the success of its remotely operated vehicle (ROV) Daksh, city-based defence research laboratory Research and Development Establishment – Engineers ((R&DE) (E)) is now developing ROVs like Daksh, which would have combat ability in insurgency-hit areas.

    “Daksh is suited for low intensity conflict areas. It is currently equipped with necessary surveillance and detection capabilities and can defuse Improvised Explosives Devices (IEDs). We are working on having a facility, which will enable it to fight in remote locations, without endangering the lives of our soldiers,” Director R&DE (E), Dr S Guruprasad said.

    The modified ROV will have a gun mounted on it and the option of attaching a grenade launcher. According to Guruprasad, development of unmanned remotely operated battlefield systems like the ROVs, demining vehicles are some of the technologies R&DE (E) is focusing on.

    The DRDO laboratory, which has recently won the Silicon trophy for 2012 for outstanding contributions towards defence research will also be focusing on composite material technology.

    “We will be focusing on composite material technology that will enable us to develop high strength light weight military bridges and other structures. R&DE (E) has successfully developed and introduced military bridging systems, mine-warfare equipment and mobile launchers for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles and the Autonomous Underwater Vehicle,” he said.

    The R&DE (E) director said that the Silicon Award is in recognition of their contribution towards delivering state-of-the-art systems in the areas of combat-engineering, field-defence and Nuclear-Biological-Chemical protection, weapon-support systems, composites and robotics.

    well personally i would like it to be small enough to be carried on one or two soldiers back, preferably on one soldier back, but at the same time big version has its own advantages as it deter terrorists that something big is against them.

    There are different size, the size DRDO guys have are better when providing suppressive fire from streets, perfect in CT areas..

    Due to height it have better visual and bigger size gives bigger engine and batt hence longer range and endurance compare to small ones..

    ==============

    What you are comparing is with something underpowered and undergun, They are degraded compare to DRDO one..

    have to paid attention to the fact that this robo is bottom heavy and center of gravity is at the bottom side not in the middle,

    [​IMG]

    please also understand that robo is tested in field with all the things. Plus 6 wheels provide stability of the platform, as it require only 4 wheels for stability still two extra wheels to provide extra stability to platform so that it wont flip.

    I don`t believe that would be the case otherwise they would not feature them so, for example the US made once you posted feature 50cal AMR, I can say the same about it..

    I would rather be happy if they put a little bigger platform with twin AGL and a 7.62/5.56mm Mini Gun :D

    Faster, lighter, DRDO’s Daksh now has CBRN detection mechanism
    Daksh is primarily designed to detect and recover Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs). It was inducted in the Indian Army around 2011.
