Unmanned Aerial Systems & Targets

All Products

L&T intends to cater the needs of the Indian MoD and the Indian Armed Forces for UAVs and Targets through technological alliances with OEMs and through in-house development. We have successfully demonstrated our capability to manufacture UAV Airframes and other subsystems and are actively pursuing similar programmes for MoD, Research Labs and Indian Armed Forces. As a part of our focus on supporting indigenous systems and products through the ‘Make in India’ initiative, we have obtained Design Approval from CEMILAC to undertake Design & Development of Avionics, Aero-Structures, Control Systems & Software, Mechanical Systems and Airborne Systems for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles.
