These underwater jammers cut off a drone’s connection to its operator over the border before freezing it. Multi-shot guns installed on multi-weapon platforms then take additional action to knock it down. The two machines are operated by as many soldiers as possible, “said defence sources. ”

The aqua jammer can detect drone signals up to a range of 5km.

As per sources, the multi-weapon platform has three weapons installed on it and each can fire nine bullets at a time, leaving no scope for the enemy drone to escape fire.

About 400 metres behind the LoC, the two systems have been placed.
