Harshwardhansinh Zala, a 16-year-old boy from Ahmedabad has designed a drone named ‘EAGLE A7’ which he claims can help detect and destroy landmines without any risk to human lives.

Harshwardhansinh, founder and CEO of Aerobotics 7 said that his company’s main focus is EAGLE A7 which is the landmine-detection-and-destruction drone.

This drone, from the Indian army base station, can go to the path where it has to go and detect the landmines. After detecting the landmines, the drone will send the information back to the army base station. The landmines can be viewed real-time and destroyed real-time without human risk.

‘This Technology Is Not Available Anywhere Else’

Harshwardhansinh, the designer of the drone, said that he has invented this technology and it is not available anywhere else.

We have developed the entire technology using raw materials and multi-spectral landmine detection technology. This is under the process of international patent registration. We can detect landmines through different wavelengths.

‘Wish to Help the Armed Forces’

Harshwardhansinh has also received many offers from abroad. However, he wishes to help the armed forces through his technology.

I have got partnership offers from South Korea, US, France, Dubai and Thailand. We have got offers to establish our company there. We have been ensured funding as well. But, given the number of jawans who are martyred (due to landmines), in our motherland, if I can develop this technology to serve the Indian Army and the CRPF, I will be glad.
