Abraham, who is the nodal officer of CyberDrome, said this lab-cum-research centre will look into both utility and threat aspects of a drone. Cyberdome is a technological research and development centre of the Kerala Police Department.
He said, “while analysing a drone at the research centre, we'll look into its origin, see its utility value such as using it for policing and devising anti-drone mechanisms to check its misuse as we saw in the case of drone activities at the border”.
"Of late, drone is another emerging threat, which may pose very serious technological threat to the cities as well. We have taken a note of it and we are starting a Drone Research Lab and Drone Forensic Lab," Kerala Police chief Anil Kant had said.His statement had come a day after Army chief General MM Naravane said easy availability of drones has increased the complexity of security challenges in the country.
