The DRDO Center For High Energy Systems and Sciences has issued a Request For Information (RFI) to procure a Fixed Wing UAV as well as for its operation, field maintenance and repair that will be used for various field experimentations and demonstration of Directed Energy Weapons (DEW).

The fixed-wing UAV should have a wingspan of 2.5 meters and length of 1.5 meters powered by a 20 cc IC engine.

The fixed-wing UAV should be capable of takeoff from a short runway of 100 meters and must have an endurance of at least 30 minutes.

The DRDO had also sought $100 million from the Ministry of Defense in 2021 to develop a 100 kilowatt (KW) system known as the Directionally Unrestricted Ray Gun Array that will be integrated with land, sea and air based platforms.
