DRDO Looks To Engage Firms For Border Surveillance System


The Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) is looking towards the industry for the commercial production and marketing of a border surveillance system (BOSS) developed by it.

Two prototypes of the system, developed by DRDO’s Dehradun-based Instruments Research and Development Establishment, were deployed in Ladakh for trials for over a year, sources said. Following requisite modifications and upgrading, the DRDO now wants it operationalised.

“Since DRDO is not a production agency, we are looking at transferring the technology to interested parties, both in private and public sector that can manufacture the system,” a senior DRDO scientist said. “We are willing to engage up to three firms for the project,” he added.

BOSS can be deployed at unmanned observation posts for remote controlled all-weather day-and-night monitoring of designated areas.  Read More
