Stand off with china, popularity of Made in India drones for LAC surveillance is high
Excited by the performance of the indigenous high-altitude tactical drones purchased last year to keep tabs on the effective line of control (LAC) in Ladakh, the military has placed a new order for an advanced version from its manufacturer, an Indian startup.
The defense and security establishment reported that a new contract was recently signed with ideaForge for the advanced version – with increased resistance and additional technical characteristics – of SWITCH tactical drones used by special forces and the army infantry.
Sources say delivery of the entire series of Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) drones ordered by the Mumbai-based company in January last year has been completed and is being widely used in the country.
The Indian Army also conducts surveillance via satellites and uses specialized aircraft, such as the Indian Navy’s P8i.
