Bangalore: India is developing an unmanned combat air vehicle and all technologies required for the project have already been identified, a senior defence official said.
“We have identified all the technologies required for the unmanned combat air vehicle,” P S Subramanyam project director and chief of Aeronautical Development Agency, a DRDO lab headquartered, said.
These technologies include flying wing and stealth, which was most important, he said speaking at newly formed Bangalore Defence and Aerospace Journalists’ Forum.
“Work on the project has begun in different parts of the country, including in laboratories. Technologies are now getting evolved and we are working on configuration in parallel and eventually at some stage user (IAF) requirements will be matched into the design,” he said.
