CHENNAI: Chennai-based firm Garuda Aerospace is all set to deploy its range of drones for the Indian Army as the firm has been asked to provide its technical assistance for Defence.

“Garuda Aerospace has created significant traction by deploying drones for unique applications to support the Indian Army and now will be using multiple purpose drones for strategic and tactical operations. Our drones are designed with artificial intelligence and machines which have rapid learning, “ Agnishwar Jayaprakash, Founder and CEO, Garuda Aerospace, told DT Next.

The Indian Army sent a letter to Garuda Aerospace talking of the “constant requirement to innovate and preserve manpower against avoidable casualties while maintaining timelines and operational tempo being the need of modern day warfare.”

Agnishwar said that the Army will state the existing problems and the drone firm is required to provide technical solutions. “For instance, the land mines are a serious threat not just in borders but also in maoist dominated areas and the drones equipped with tactical strategic payloads will identify the mines and will be involved in de-mining operations,” he said.

He added that 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.”

“The Army wants a scientific solution using their ‘Make In India’ drones to decrease the vulnerability of Indian soldiers and manual labour involved by providing reconnaissance, logistic support,” added Agnishwar.
