BANGALORE: Owing to the rising incidents of violence within the country, the Defence Research and Development Organization (DRDO) introduced a department for Low Intensity Conflict (LIC) for internal security.

Speaking to media persons after the second International Conference on Electronic Warfare held on Wednesday, Chief Controller Research and Development (R&D) Avionics G Elangovan said that LIC was created to identify electronic warfare technologies and to customise the same to help the paramilitary and police forces across India.

He added that EW systems used electromagnetic spectrum to counter any adversary moves from various platforms such as night-vision, handheld radios, IED detection kits and radars among others. He said, “ Niche technologies development need to be developed by the DRDO as others would not share the same with us (India).”
