The Indian Armed Forces have a huge requirement of Unmanned Aircraft System for intelligence gathering and surveillance activities.
Boeing is trying to make the most of PM Modi’s “Make in India” initiative as it seeks collaboration on Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) with several Indian companies. The company has reached out to several Indian companies, including small and medium-sized firms.
The Indian Armed Forces have a huge requirement of UAS for different missions, and the Indian Navy not only has to secure and protect the over 7,500 km coastline, but also has to patrol the Indian Ocean Region. The navy wants to add multipliers to its naval assets and UAS.
