World’s first remote bomb defusal drone debuts in Dubai

by

Dubai Police’s explosives security department has unveiled a new addition to their squad, an innovative drone that can disable explosives remotely without endangering lives.

The drone is designed to be able to carry gallons of water and is equipped with a water cannon that safely defuses bombs without needing of human intervention.

According to its creators, First Corporal Hamad Rashid Al Falasi and First Sergeant Mohammed Sulaiman Al Balushi, the development of the drones underwent many procedures, sleepless nights and various experimentations.

“It is the first-of-its-kind in the world, with an airtime of 10 minutes and is sufficient to carry a water cannon to disable bombs and can be operated remotely,” First Corporal Al Falasi said.

“During the first experiment, the drone fell and later we realized it was due to its heavy weight of 6kg. We imbibed scientific weight reduction methods used in aviation and tried six launches. This drone will now be the first responder in dealing with time bombs that require fast handling. It can also be used to break glass and windows to inspect and detect explosives. The inbuilt camera can be used to detonate explosives remotely,” First Sergeant Al Balushi elaborated.
