Drone startup Jatayu Unmanned Systems said it recently successfully tested an indigenously developed combat unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV). It conducted a field test earlier this month in collaboration with the law enforcement agencies in Mumbai where a standard issue assault rifle weapon mounted on a UAV platform was live-fired.

The startup, which has been building drones for defence applications since 2015, says Jatayu Aim-X is India’s first combat-ready UAV. It has an independent ground control station and can be controlled remotely via satellite communication as well.

“It’s been under development since 2016 and we’ve previously live-fired it successfully under trials with the Indian Armed Forces, obtaining an accuracy of 93% on target. India needs to be prepared for the threats of the future and we hope our UAV platform will help save critical lives on the frontlines. In the coming weeks, we’re due to test our platform with various other units of the Indian Army, as well,” said Captain Aman Johri, CEO of Jatayu Unmanned Systems, as per reported by YourStory.
