A three-day event, the North Tech symposium, began on Monday at IIT Jammu. It's about showcasing new defense technology, including Indian-made weapons and equipment. The Indian Army, along with the Society of Indian Defence Manufacturers and IIT Jammu, organized it. They displayed surveillance devices, troop mobility systems, weapons, soldier protection gear, communication tools, and medical facilities for soldiers. The event will end today.
A piece of versatile equipment with legs, known as Multi-utility Legged Equipment (MULE), made for the Indian Army, was displayed at the North Tech Symposium 2023 in Jammu.
The MULE can carry things weighing up to 12 kg. You can attach different tools to it, like thermal cameras and radars. It can even be turned into a firing platform. It uses both Wi-Fi and LTE for communication. Wi-Fi is for short distances, while LTE can work for up to 10 km. This equipment is suitable for use in various types of terrains. Aryan Singh, an R&D Engineer at ARC Ventures, shared this information.
An AI-based system, known as the Autonomous Multi Weapon Engagement System (Anti-Drone System), created for the Indian Army, was also presented at the North Tech Symposium in Jammu.
Lt Colonel Mihir explained that this system has three main parts. The first part is a platform where various weapons like machine guns, rifles, and carbines can be attached. The second part is a smart computer powered by AI, and the third part is a control box. It has two main modes: one where it operates on its own and can detect and track drones, and another where it's controlled manually. This system was developed by MCEME.
