Indian army to deploy robots in Occupied Kashmir to fight violence

J&K Terrorists attack Army camp in Kupwara jawan injured

In what is being touted as a boost to the anti-terror fight in Jammu & Kashmir, the Indian Army has proposed to build indigenous robots that are created to deliver ammunition at targeted locations, according to a report.

They said that robotic weapons could be introduced by the Defence Ministry which will help forces in counter-insurgency as well as counter-militant operations.

According to online portal, the defence ministry has already approved an army proposal to induct 544 robots for the objective. This move might be taken in order to reduce the number of injuries to the soldiers when faced with armed militants or even stone-pelting protesters.

Paul Merson berates Antonio Conte for shocking Alvaro Morata/Michy Batshuayi substitution
Antonio Conte gave Alvaro Morata 31 minutes from the substitutes' bench on his Premier League debut and he scored with a header. In-form Vokes now has seven goals in his last six Premier League appearances after netting only five in the previous 58.

For the past eight months, CAIR, a laboratory of the Defence Research & Development Organisation leading India's research in defence-related artificial intelligence, has been working on this project. Besides, the robots will also be able to work in indoor conditions at various key establishments. "The way the situation is evolving (in J&K), it may just be a matter of time when security forces as a whole, and Rashtriya Rifles (RR) in particular, will be facing the threat in built-up and super built-up areas", an army sopkeserson said.

According to the report, these "lightweight and rugged" robots will comprise many surveillance cameras and transmission systems with a 200 metre-range.
