UAV » Unmanned Aerial Systems

Unmanned Aerial Systems are deployed to enhance the capabilities of the military and security forces in the field of real time intelligence , surveillance and reconnaissance . TASL through Aurora Integrated Systems is focusing on in-house design and development of mini and micro UAV systems, complemented by indigenous design of major subsystems like Autopilot , Ground Control Station , Gimbal based payloads. This has enabled TASL to offer cutting edge solutions for currnet and future UAV requirements of Indian Security Forces.

Key Features :

  • All terrain 24 x 7 mission capability
  • Autonomous flight and landing
  • Autonomous mission control and target tracking
  • Retractable Gyro Stabilized gimbals for day and night payloads

The systems have been extensively field tested and one of the system , Aquilon has been selected by the Indian Army.
