Army develops its own armed UAV, more advanced ones to follow


With Army Chief General Bipin Rawat here on Friday pushing for defence innovations by armed forces personnel for development by the industry, a team of soldiers have created an armed Unmanned Aerial Vehicle for the army, which has been a long pending requirement.

The UAV, known as a quadcopter by the team of two army soldiers who developed it, has been used in live operations along the Line of Control between India and Pakistan  and counter-terrorist operations in Jammu and Kashmir. What makes this quadcopter important is that not only the army, but also the other defence services, don’t have armed drones.

Separately, the army has also found that the Indian industry has the capability to develop a more advanced version of this UAV, which is a ‘Make’ (equipment developed and manufactured by Indian vendor) case being analysed. Demonstrations of some models could be held next month.  Read More
