The Indian Navy said its handheld infrared-based temperature sensor has been manufactured under a cost of Rs 1000/- using in-house resources.

The press release by the Indian Navy confirms that Naval Dockyard Mumbai designed a low-cost infrared-based temperature gun to fight against COVID-19.

The 285-year-old Naval Dockyard(ND) of Western Naval Command(WNC) has an average influx of around 20,000 personnel in its premises every day. An initial screening of personnel is undertaken to prevent the spread of COVID-19 within the yard and the Western Fleet.

Indian Navy designed and developed its own handheld infrared-based temperature sensor for the screening of personnel. The instrument has been manufactured under the cost of less than Rs 1000/- through in-house resources, which is a fraction of the cost of the Temperature Guns in the market.
