Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd to make advanced armed UAV with Israeli Company

 

Uncrewed Combat Aerial Vehicles (UCAVs) will manufacture in India, with leading aeronautical entity Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd (HAL) set to formalize a partnership with an Israeli firm that specializes in autonomous weaponry.

The advanced Heron TP, which belongs to the Medium Altitude Long Endurance (MALE) class with an endurance of over 36 hours, will be manufactured to cater both to Indian requirements for a combat UAV and possibly exports to third nations in the future as well.

HAL set to sign a partnership pact with Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) at the upcoming DefExpo 2020 in Lucknow this week, with estimates that in the Indian market alone, there is a requirement of at least 100 drones of this type.

Heron TP is an advanced version of the Heron UAVs that are currently in service with the three forces in a reconnaissance role.
