According to a Hindustan Times report, the robots are under the 'Make' category of acquisition in the Defence Procurement Procedure 2016 that stipulates that only Indian vendors can participate in these endeavours.

The robots are designed to deliver ammunition at targeted locations. 

"The way the situation is evolving (in J&K), it may just be a matter of time when security forces as a whole, and Rashtriya Rifles (RR) in particular, will be facing the threat in built-up and super built-up areas," the army told HT.


According to the report "a second unit which can be operated alongside the first unit by a single operator with the same remote (having at least dual display screen) should also form part of the system."

The “lightweight and rugged” robots will comprise many surveillance cameras and transmission systems with a 200 metre-range.

More recently, an indigenous remotely operated vehicle called ‘Daksh’ has been used for handling improvised explosive devices.
