Maiden innovation display by NCC cadets at the 12th DefExpo in Gandhinagar

The National Cadet Corps (NCC) cadets of Bihar & Jharkhand Directorate displayed three advanced technology prototypes including Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) and Hand gesture sensing BOT during the 12th DefExpo in Gandhinagar, Gujarat.

UAV: Designed and developed by the cadets, it is a versatile platform which can be used for tactical missions ranging from counter insurgency/counter terrorist operations for reconnaissance using remotely controlled cameras. It can also be used as a destroyer using GPS. The UAV is a highly economical version and can be easily made for training purposes as well for defence. Currently, the overall weight of the UAV is 1kg and it can carry a payload of around 0.7 Kgs.

“The current version of the UAV can be well utilised for training army and air force personnel. We will be shortly coming up with an upgraded version,”, said UO Somya Garg, NCC, BIT Mesra and a 4th Year Mechanical Engg. Student.

All-Terrain Vehicle: Developed and designed for all terrain mobility, it is most suitable for last mile connectivity in extreme rugged terrain to deliver ammunition and supplies and can also be used for patrolling and search and destroy operations. It has features like all wheel independent suspension and can withstand a free fall of six feet. The ATV is capable of towing vehicles upto 1500 kg.

Hand gesture sensing BOT: Remotely controlled robot which can find multifarious military uses without exposure of soldiers to enemy.

All these prototypes were displayed to senior dignitaries from Armed Forces and MoD. They showed keen interest about the displayed prototypes and lauded the efforts of Bihar and Jharkhand Directorate NCC for showcasing the talent of cadets at such an event.

“The maiden innovation display by NCC cadets at the prestigious DefExpo 2022 establishes their tech potential to support the vision of ‘Aatmanirbhar Bharat’ through indigenous R&D. NCC is uniquely positioned to become the interface between military, academia students, and research institutes,”, said Maj Gen Indrabalan, ADG NCC B&J.
