DroneAcharya Aerial Innovations Limited, India’s first Drone company to go public, has launched BHUJANG (Battlefield Hybrid UAV for Joint Attack, Navigation and Guarding), a heavy lift off, super-high-altitude, long-range drone with multiple capabilities. The drone is India’s First Super High Altitude Multi Rotor Multi – Role Drone, achieving an astonishing altitude of 1,500-meter AGL (Above Ground Level) from 4,800-meter-high take off point, with a maximum altitude of 6,300 meter. It is also South Asia’s first drone with combat, transport and surveillance capabilities in single aircraft.
Prateek Srivastava, Founder and Managing Director of DroneAcharya Aerial Innovations shares some insights after successful tests with Indian Army “BHUJANG boasts of innovation in ergonomics, advanced opto-electronics system and multiple payload dropping mechanism with auto trigger capabilities. This aerial platform could be a game changer for Defense and Military applications because apart from multi – payload, multi-application capabilities at high altitudes, it also has an extra layer of security and encryption at firmware level. It has an encrypted communication system with flight computation of negative altitude calculations, used with proprietary software and sensor suite with advanced algorithms.”
