Indian Army inks $20 mn contract to purchase SWITCH drones

The Indian Army has not too long ago signed a contract with Mumbai-based drone manufacturing firm, ideaForge, to obtain high-altitude variant of SWITCH unmanned aerial autos (UAVs). The complete value of the deal is roughly USD 20 million. However, the amount of UAVs to be procured is just not disclosed. These UAVs can be delivered to the Indian Army over a interval of 1 yr.

SWITCH UAV is an indigenous system constructed to cater for probably the most demanding surveillance operations of the Indian Forces. This Fixed-Wing VTOL (Vertical Take-off and Landing) UAV might be deployed at excessive altitude and harsh environments for day and evening surveillance in Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) missions. It is man-portable and has the best time on track in comparison with some other UAV in its class.
