Jammu attack: Why stealth drones pose lethal threat to key installations in India. In about this first attack across the border, suspected terrorists based in Pakistan on Sunday dropped bombs at the IAF station at Jammu airport using drones.
Two Air Force personnel received injuries from drone strikes, which took place within six minutes.
Two consecutive blasts took place at Jammu Air Force’s top security station on Sunday morning. Drones crashed at IAF station at Jammu airport in the early hours of Sunday morning, probably the first time suspected terrorists from Pakistan used unmanned aerial vehicles
Jammu and Kashmir DGP Dilbag Singh later confirmed that this was an attack, and Intel sources say it is possible that the drones were removed from a few miles off the airbase.
The use of drones to attack key military installations has led to some concern within security facilities.
Homeland Security and Security have been talking about threats from small and controlled vehicles for two to three years.
There have been some incidents where Pakistani armed drones have been dropped off by the Border Security Force (BSF), Punjab police and other agencies on the India-Pakistan border.
JAMMU: While security forces in the area are on their toes following a small explosion at the Indian Air Force Station, Jammu Police have reduced a major terrorist attack by arresting a 5-pound terrorist ‘The Resistance Front (TRF) terrorist at Improvised Explosive Device (IED) in Narwal
Drones are not available with radars sent to border areas to monitor enemy operations, officials said, suggesting that a separate radar system be installed that could detect small drones like a bird.
Meanwhile, security agencies involved in the investigation into the Jammu drone attack are also examining the possibility of terrorists launching quadcopter bombers from within a few miles of the airbase.
Given the number of explosives carried by basic quadcopters, it is possible that the drone may have been launched by terrorists in the vicinity of a few kilometers or below the airbase, sources told ANI.
The distance from Jammu airport to the international border is 14 kilometers.
‘No proper technology yet to thwart drones’
A clutch of departments and departments such as domestic, aviation, Bureau of Civil Aviation Security (BCAS), Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) and the IAF have been working on programs and technologies to monitor and combat these attacks on airports and other facilities. .
The Bureau of Police Research and Development (BPRD) team has also held a number of multi-stakeholder conferences to find the most effective, both technological and economic, to reduce and eliminate these threats.
The BSF chief said that they will still have the most appropriate technology to thwart armed drones along the border. The interventions made so far are due to the vigilance of the soldiers who were on duty.
He said many incidents of weapons and drug paraphernalia carrying drones and quadcopters from Pakistan into the Indian side of Jammu and Punjab have been noticed over the past few years and all have been disrupted.
However, a senior official of the Ministry of Home Affairs has said that there have been instances where drones are used to monitor the assets and positions of the Indian border. But as soon as they appeared and a response arose, the flyers went back to where the terrorist organizations or the Pakistani army were to carry the remote control, a police officer said.
