The Navy said the sensor gun has been manufactured under Rs 1,000 using in-house resources.

The 285-year-old Naval Dockyard of the Western Naval Command (WNC) has an average influx of around 20,000 personnel entering its premises every day.

The Navy said the decision to develop a sensor was done because of the scarcity of temperature guns in market due to the pandemic.
