Daksh is an electrically powered and remotely controlled robot used for locating, handling and destroying hazardous objects safely. Daksh speaks for the ingenuity of the R&DE(E). It is a battery-operated robot on wheels and its primary role is to recover improvised explosive devices (IEDs). It locates IEDs with an X-ray machine, picks them up with a gripper-arm and defuses them with a jet of water. It has a shotgun, which can break open locked doors, and it can scan cars for explosives. Daksh can also climb staircases, negotiate steep slopes, navigate narrow corridors and tow vehicles. Alok Mukherjee, a scientist, said: With a master control station (MCS), it can be remotely controlled over a range of 500 m in line of sight or within buildings. Ninety per cent of the robots components are indigenous. The Army has placed orders for 20 Dakshs
Daksh is a remotely operated vehicle for defusing bombs, is currently under going trials. Developed by Defence Research and Development Organisation it is fully automated. It climbs stairs to reach hazardous materials. Using its robotized arm, it can lift a suspect object and scan it using its portable X-Ray device. If the object is bomb, Daksh can defuse it with its water jet disrupter. Daksh can be armed with a shotgun, if necessary
Can neutralise NBC weapons
Has Radio frequency shield to jam remote signals for triggering a blast
