Indian firms have been moving from one innovation to the other. After the Indian version of the iPad by NotionInk an Indian private firm has hit the headlines for having developed an UAV. This Unarmed Combat Vehicle (UAV) is said to be the world’s smallest and lightest. Named Carbon, this UAV will be of great help in fighting terrorists as well as in defence applications.
The UAV has vertical takeoff and landing capabilities. It can carry intelligence equipment on board and is very useful in disaster management and aerial photography. It can be programmed to take of on a preplanned mission and land back at the same location after completing it.
It is made of carbon fiber composites and weighs only 1.5 kg. It has a range of one km and is powered by Li-Pc batteries. In the first US-Asian Demonstration and Assessment of Micro Aerial and Unmanned Ground Vehicle Technology the UAV won the prize for the best entry amongst 16 other entries.
