BHUBANESWAR: Odisha Police plan to bring in anti-drone (UAV) device to mount surveillance on drones in the State. For the purpose, experts of a Germany-based company delivered a presentation on anti-drone devices at the DGP’s camp office here on Wednesday in the presence of DGP Dr RP Sharma and other senior police officers. The presentation was planned after the Civil Aviation Ministry announced country’s first National Drone Usage Policy in August.
The new policy is expected to open opportunities for several commercial sectors and trigger a commercial production of different sizes of drones like large, small, medium and micro drones. The Twin City police are bracing up for implementing the policy which will come into force from December this year. However, one major restriction will be drones cannot fly around and over the sensitive areas.
As per the National Drone Usage Policy, except nano drones and those owned by National Technical Research
