A 14-year-old boy has created a media buzz after he bagged the Rs 5 crore deal for production of a drone designed by him during the Vibrant Gujarat Global Summit on Thursday.

According to the media reports, the boy, identified as Harshwardhan Zala, 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.

Zala, a class Xth student, started work on the prototype of the landmine-detecting drone in 2016 and created a business plan too.

“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,” a TOI report quoted Zala as saying.

While explaining the design of his drone, Zala said: “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 added.

Interestingly, Zala has already registered for a patent and has set up his own company ‘Aerobotics’.
