Title: Defence Weaponry Against Mosquitoes
Authors: Das, Natasha
Issue Date: Jul-2010
Publisher: CSIR
Abstract: What’s your defence against mosquitoes? Mosquito repellent mats, creams, sprays, and nets... Has it ever crossed your mind that the nation’s Defence Research and Development Organization, or the DRDO as we know it, is also working towards defending you from mosquitoes? DRDO has made significant contributions to India’s strategic defence system over the last five decades. It often awes us with its contributions to the development of missiles such as Agni, Prithvi, Akash and Nag or the majestic battle tank Arjun. But the organization’s efforts are not limited to the development of arms and armament systems. Some spinoff benefits of DRDO’s efforts have found immense use for the society at large. One such line of research has helped provide defence against mosquitoes...one of man’s deadliest enemies.
