NEW DELHI: After unveiling the first indigenously manufactured Drishti 10 Starliner Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) in Hyderabad, Indian Navy Chief Admiral R Hari Kumar asserted the platform is expected to be a ‘capability enhancer’ for the force.
He affirmed the UAV is a dream come true for the Navy, that a Medium Altitude Long Endurance UAV has been manufactured in India with over 60 per cent indigenous content.
“It’s a milestone event for the Indian Navy and India’s quest for an Atmanirbhar Bharat. This is a dream come true for us that a Medium Altitude Long Endurance (MALE)has been manufactured in India with over 60 per cent indigenous content. This demonstrates the capability that has been set up,” he said during an interaction with reporters after the unveiling ceremony in Hyderabad.
“This will be a great capability enhancer for us. And we are quite confident now that this is only going to strengthen us and provide us with even better capabilities as time goes by. I’ve gone around and seen the facility,” the Navy chief outlined.
