EAGLE-7 is the name given by the 16-year-old boy who created the drone which can detect and destroy landmines. At this age, he is also the founder and the CEO of Aerobatics 7. Wow! This kid sure is a genius. They create smart technologies which will help the world to be a better place. And his name is Harshwardhansinh Zala.
This landmine detector and destroyer are said to be never seen before in the defence market. He clearly stated the facts about EAGLE-7 while having a conversation with The Quint, he said,
“This drone, from the Indian army base station, can go to the path where it has to go and detect the landmines. After detecting the landmines, the drone will send the information back to the army base station. The landmines can be viewed real-time and destroyed real-time without human risk.”
Also, according to a report, many foreign countries already approached him for making a business deal, but he wants to serve his country more than anything else. He said,
“I have got partnership offers from South Korea, the US, France, Dubai and Thailand. We have got offers to establish our company there. We have been ensured funding as well. But, given the number of jawans who are martyred (due to landmines), in our motherland, if I can develop this technology to serve the Indian Army and the CRPF, I will be glad.”
Seeing such talents and love for our country is kind of overwhelming and even feels proud to be a citizen of our country. Hope you reach the top and serve the country and its sure that your story will be an inspiration for the young ones out there.
