Indigenous sensors will change defence applications: DRDO

Indigenous development of sensors would play a great role and revolutionise applications like unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) for commercial and defence applications, scientist and chairman of Defence Research Development Organisation (DRDO) G Satheesh Reddy said Sunday.

Reddy, also the chairman of Aeronautical Society of India, said there was a huge transformation in the areas of unmanned systems and associated technologies.

“UAVs are going to play a major role in both defence and civilian sectors. So, there is an urgent need for industries to gear up and work in these areas,” a press release from the Aeronautical Society of India quoted him as saying.

Reddy highlighted the contributions of DRDO to design and development of modern UAVs and said a contest ‘Drone Olympics’ would be organised by Ministry of Defence during the forthcoming Aero India event. Read More
