AHMEDABAD, Jan 13: A 14 years old boy created a buzz at the Vibrant Gujarat Global Summit on Thursday after he signed a Rs 5 crore-worth memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the state government, on deal for production of a drone designed by him.
Harshwardhan Zala, 14, signed a deal with the Department of Science and Technology, Government of Gujarat, to facilitate production of the drones that help detect and defuse land mines on war fields.
The class 10 student had been working on his business plan and made three prototypes of the drone, reports said.
“The inspiration struck when I was watching television and learned that a large number of soldiers succumb to injuries sustained due to landmine blasts while defusing them manually. The drone has been equipped with infrared, RGB sensor and thermal meter along with a 21-megapixel camera with a mechanical shutter that can take high resolution pictures as well. The drone also carries a bomb weighing 50 gram that can be used to destroy the landmine.", Zala said.
