UAV India 2017 Civil & Military

The event will focus on the development, military and civil employment and potential of UAVs in India, including unmanned combat air vehicles, micro and mini UAVs, payloads (sensors, survey & surveillance equipment, EW, weapons), ground stations (data links, launch and recovery systems), aerial targets and maritime unmanned systems.

Military Uses of UAVs

The armed forces are convinced that UAV technology is very useful and successful in different types of operations. In addition, maritime operations, as well as surveillance and reconnaissance operations in India are boosting the demand for medium altitude long endurance UAVs and tactical UAVs

The infantry has decided to scale three mini UAVs to every infantry battalion. Within the next three years the Indian defence ministry will stage five additional tenders for the purchase of a combined 600 mini UAS systems to be operated by the air force, infantry and artillery units and the federal police. These deals will be worth a total of $1.25 billion, with all production to be performed in India.

The Indian military depends heavily on UAVs for surveillance. The requirement has become more pronounced for the years ahead, and the IAF alone plans to buy about 300 additional UAVs, including combat rotary and micro-UAVs.

Civil Uses of UAVs

The rapid development of UAVs promises to change the way a host of services will be delivered in the security, transport, gas, oil, mining, agriculture, survey & mapping, disaster management and specially the infrastructure sector. With versatile payloads like high-resolution cameras, sophisticated sensors and array of functions, with increased endurance, the boundaries of employment of UAVs will only expand through innovation and ingenuity. 

In the gas and oil sector, they can assist in leak detection, inspection, monitoring, collection of data and so on. Three-axis stabilized, high-resolution still and video cameras, over 10x optical zoom. Thermal FLIR, near-IR, CO2 sensors, methane sensors, hydrocarbon sensors and air quality samplers payloads now help in generating GIS-tagged images, terrain analysis, video analytics, remote sensing, topography, thermography and so on.
