Balkh Students Build Smart Missile

A group of four Balkh students, who call themselves “The Group of Green Thought”  have built their own heat-seeking missile. 
 
The group's leader, Mohammad Amin Joya, says the body of the missile is made of steel and has a range of four kilometers.
 
Joya said that it took six months for them to build the missile which is fitted with a heat-seeking device and cost them $600 USD.
 
“We have used potassium nitrate, sulfur and glucose, which is used in the fuel sector,” Joya said.
 
“The body of the stinger is made of steel, which has a small radar,” Joya added.
 
Asked about where it can be used,  Joya said: “When there are multiple helicopter targets and you want to target one of them, the time is controlled manually, and it has a camera that allows you to identify your target from a distance.”
 
Their missile measures one meter long and weighs 16 kilograms.
 
“Through our computer, we can control the missile and track the target, and the program has been developed by me,” said Sayed Noor Hussain Hussaini, one of the group’s members.
 
The group said they are trying to work towards positive changes in the country and that they could be successful if the government supports them. 
 
“Attention should be paid to young people and we are confident that we can make the most advanced weapons by young people at the earliest opportunity and defend our own homeland,” said Ali Milad another member of the group.
 
Joya said he has already built a robot to detect mines and other security threats.
 
He said his robot is capable of detecting a moving device from ten meters.
