India Launches Mini-UAV Aircraft Contest

The Indi­an hi-tech indus­try is grow­ing fast, but for par­tic­u­lar equip­ment such as mod­ern pock­et UAVs, Del­hi con­tin­ues to launch bil­lion dol­lar con­tests (it is to be not­ed that 10% of arma­ment sales world­wide is direct­ed to India).

The remote-con­trolled air­craft, or UAVs (Unmanned Aer­i­al Vehi­cles) are the lat­est devel­op­ments fea­tured by all mod­ern armies, and Del­hi has decid­ed to equip its own forces with mini-UAVs . The Indi­an Air Force and Navy have issued a ten­der for the sup­ply of 100 mini-Uavs, and the selec­tion deci­sion is going to be made by the end of the year.

Accord­ing to dec­la­ra­tions, sources indi­cate that two com­pa­nies have sub­mit­ted their pro­pos­als, but it seems that oth­er man­u­fac­tur­ers may join the com­pe­ti­tion lat­er.

Cur­rent­ly, the Israeli Blue­bird and the US AeroVi­ron­ment have offered their prod­ucts, which are the MicroB and the Raven (or maybe the Puma) respec­tive­ly.

This ten­der is part of the wider process to increase Indi­an hi-tech equip­ment. It is also to be not­ed that only yes­ter­day India showed a demon­stra­tion of force by launch­ing its already-test­ed Akash mis­siles
