In the midst of the face-off between India and China, Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) has reportedly offered its indigenously-developed drone “Bharat” to the Indian Army for accurate surveillance along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in Eastern Ladakh.
Bharat, indigenously developed by a Chandigarh-based laboratory of DRDO, is among “world’s most agile and lightest surveillance drone.”
A report by ANI quoted defence sources as saying, “The Indian Army requires drones for accurate surveillance in the ongoing dispute in the Eastern Ladakh area. For this, the DRDO has provided them with the Bharat drones.”
The report also quoted sources from DRDO as saying, “The small yet powerful drone works autonomously at any location with great accuracy. The unibody biomimetic design with advance release technology is a lethal combination for surveillance missions.”
Equipped with artificial intelligence, the drone can differentiate between enemy and friends on its own and can take action accordingly.
As reported, the drone has been designed in a way that makes it impossible to be detected by Radar.
