Army goes for 600 mini-UAVs to keep vigil on border

With objectives to maintain a strict vigil at the Pakistan and China border over terrorist activities, the Indian Army has accepted the tender inquiries for acquisition of 600 mini Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs).

The Army sources said the process of accepting tender inquiries was over and the technical assessment was under progress.

A total of Rs 950 crore will be incurred to procure the devices through “Buy Indian” in an effort to give a boost to government’s ambitious programme, ‘Make in India’.

As per sources, each infantry battalion will be allocated one mini-UAV.

Under “Buy Indian” category, the preference in government procurement will be given to local suppliers.
