"We see potential across various sectors such as critical infrastructure surveillance including defense establishments, ports, refineries, manufacturing facilities, all of which are a good fit for our UAS and Counter Drone solutions."
The Smart City mission, launched by the Government of India, has played a significant role in fostering growth in the drone industry. As part of the mission, selected cities are undergoing comprehensive development, incorporating advanced technologies and infrastructure to enhance urban living. Drones have become an integral part of this transformation, offering solutions for efficient city planning, infrastructure monitoring, traffic management, surveillance, and disaster management. With the aim of creating sustainable and technologically advanced urban centers, the Smart City mission has created a favorable environment for the adoption and utilization of drones, making India an attractive market for UAS manufacturers, service providers, and technology innovators. We believe the integration of drones into the Smart City ecosystem has the potential to revolutionize urban development, enabling more efficient resource allocation, improved citizen services, and enhanced overall quality of life.
