To develop high-impact drones for Indian soldiers, Army Design Bureau (ADB) on Monday signed a memorandum of understanding with Drone Federation of India (DFI).

An event titled ‘Indian Army’s Him-Drone-a-thon’ will be launched as a part of their collaboration. Under this collaboration proposals will be invited for the development of drone-based solutions for supporting Indian Army operations in the harsh Himalayan terrains, according to a statement.

“The ADB will provide mentoring and enable field visits to selected participants in order to give Indian industry an exposure of the real-life operational scenarios,” it noted.

DFI and ADB, under the MoU, will collaborate on roadmap planning, research, testing, manufacturing and adoption of drones, counter-drone and associated technologies that are to be utilised by the Indian Army in its operations.

“This collaboration between the DFI and the ADB will establish new drone use cases and develop high-impact drone solutions for the Indian army soldiers via an active industry-academia-user engagement,” said Smit Shah, President, Drone Federation of India.
