VIHAAN (2014)

The system consists of a 2.12m wingspan air vehicle capable of executing a fully autonomous mission through its low cost APM autopilot, gathering intelligence via the Canon G10 camera and identifying the IR sensitive target through a customised video camera. An on-board computer was used to coordinate these efforts. The UAS also has the capability to autonomously drop a payload at the designated GPS coordinate and to showcase
interoperability operations.
