Today our world is facing one of the big threats of terrorism. A very recent attack on our country which can never be forgettable is 26/11 attack on Mumbai. Terrorists armed with deadly weapons such as AK- 47, grenades etc attacked the mob killing hundreds. These terrorists were using weapons from falling into wrong hands & strengthen our defense system, many engineers & technologists have come up with an idea to authenticate weapons by providing acess of the weapon to valid user.
Terrorists used weapons which are smuggled illegally. Hence stopping weapons from falling into the wrong hands is a major problem for law & enforcement agencies. To protect these weapons new technique is evolved i.e. weapon authentication. Weapon is a tool used to destroy the enemy or used for self defense. Authentication gives the meaning of authorization. Weapon Authentication is summarized as a technique used for authorization of weapon.
Terrorists& underworld criminals use stolen weapons which are smuggled & used illegally. People who own guns for their personal use may face problems as Kids at home unknowingly may make childish use of guns. Many times during fight criminals may steal Policeman’s gun & use them illegally. These problems ask us to think about developing safety & security mechanism for fire arms so that only authorized users can use the weapon.
Here the authentication can be done using RFID tag & reader. Licensed user will be provided with a tag with specific user ID. When weapon is set to validation RFID reader reads RFID tag. RFID reader sends the read data to microcontroller chip where authorization of user is checked. If a person is authorized the microcontroller unlocks the gun by instructing magnetic locks.
Here authorization of user can be checked by using finger print scanner. Finger print of user is scanned by finger print scanner. Scanner sends the data to microcontroller chip where authorization of user is checked. If a person is authorized the microcontroller unlocks the gun by instructing magnetic locks.
a) The O’dwyer’s VLE smart gun Electronically fired gun & launcher design. Multiple barrels with multiple rounds stacked in each barrel. It allows user to select b/w different types of round. No mechanical parts involved. Validates the exact finger print of the user.
It is a new computer chip promises to keep police guns away from firing if they fall into wrong hands. It uses RFID technology. This tiny chip is implanted b/w the shoulder & elbow area of user’s hand. Chip needs no battery or power source.
Reloading mechanism is tedious for VLE guns. Scanning device could malfunction. Veri chip may get lost or may get smashed during fight. The system can be hacked & reprogrammed. Weapon usage cannot be traced.
In today’s world technology has advanced to great extent. Many concept which were impractical to hear have now become reality. In this modern world developing smart weapons would be a hope for better future. In future illegal training of weapons may come to an end. Developing smart weapons will also help armies & federal bodies in fighting crimes in better ways.
