The Federal , Oct 22, 2019
The Bureau of Civil Aviation Security (BCAS), which is the aviation security regulator, will issue anti-drone regulations within a week to counter any rogue drones in the country, a senior official said on Tuesday (October 22).
Maheshwar Dayal, Deputy Director-General of the BCAS said, “For anti-drone, we are about to release the specifications in less than a week’s time. It is in the final stages. I think it will be a quantum leap toward the secure skies in a very literal sense.”
He was addressing an event called ‘Smart, Safe, Secure Skies’, which was organised by the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI) and global technology company Thales.
Director-General of the BCAS Rakesh Asthana said that the Ministry of Civil Aviation had constituted a committee to find out the best available counter-drone solutions to safeguard civil aviation against possible drone attacks in India.
