Garuda Aerospace Pvt Ltd, one of India’s leading drone companies continues to deliver and support The Indian Army by supplying drones and pilots to accelerate technology developments. The Indian Army has expressed keen interest to utilize Garuda Aerospace’s expertise and technical knowledge in the field of Drone Technology to use drones more effectively in modern-day warfare. The drone start-up has been invited to dispatch their technical team to undertake the modification and help the army maintain timelines and operational tempo whilst executing their duties towards the nation.
Demining is an inherently dangerous operation and the Indian Army is constantly endeavoring to improve the speed, cost and efficacy of this process. The Army also intends to further the usage of drones in integral day to day activities as well as bolster effectiveness of special missions by detecting, deterring, and disrupting transnational organized criminal networks. Garuda Aerospace shall be analyzing the practices and propose a solution using their ‘Make in India’ drones to decrease the vulnerability of Indian soldiers and manual labour involved by providing reconnaissance, logistic support.
