Published

on

Is the Indian Army exploring advanced drones to monitor the India-China border? As per reports, the Indian Army is scouting for spy drones with anti-jamming and anti-spoofing properties to be able to receive real-time input in the form of imagery and electronic data to detect movements at forwarding bases, especially along the Line of Actual Control (LAC).

The Indian Army has launched the acquisition process for remotely administered aircraft system that can operate at a height of over 18,000 feet to keep an eye on the activities of China near the loosely demarcated border called Line of Actual Control (LAC).

The request for information (RFI) provided details that were issued on August 31. It indicated that the Indian Army wants such a system, which would require only about 30 minutes and two army officers for complete assembly in posts located at higher altitudes.

The drones also need to be equipped with three complete sets of sensor packages with day and night capabilities and two airborne data transmitter to control the unmanned system beyond the line of sight.

“The mission range should not be less than 10 kilometres, with loiter time of minimum 45 minutes at the maximum range,” the RFI document reads. According to the document, the Indian Army will come up with a formal tender by April 2019 and manufacturers or vendors should deliver the system by 2020.

The Indian armed forces have been demanding mini-drones for a long time in order to modernize the military. It is believed that every soldier would receive at least one mini-drone that could be used for keeping an eye on the movement of foreign cells.
