Indian Army to use drones by MS Dhoni-backed drone firm Garuda Aerospace for security purposes

A top corporate executive claims that the technical staff at Chennai-based Garuda Aerospace has been asked to modify drones for security reasons by the Indian Army.
The army has expressed a significant interest in utilizing Garuda Aerospace’s expertise and technical understanding in the realm of drone technology to deploy drones more successfully in modern combat.

Drone manufacturer Garuda Aerospace is ready to provide knowledge to the Indian Army for the accomplishment of particular missions, such as the identification, destruction, and disruption of transnational organized criminal networks. The former Indian cricket team captain and current captain of the Chennai Super Kings is Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Additionally, he is an honorary Lieutenant Colonel in the Parachute Regiment of the Indian Territorial Army.

Demining is a risky operation by its very nature, and the army is continuously looking for ways to improve its effectiveness, speed, and cost. The company began its US $30 million Series A round of investment at a recent valuation of US $250 million.

Agnishwar Jayaprakash, Founder and CEO said “Garuda Aerospace has created significant traction by deploying drones for unique applications to support the Indian Army and now will be using multiple-purpose drones for strategic and tactical operations.”

Jayaprakash claims that this collaboration will enable big businesses like ours to utilize our expertise while also assisting in meeting defense requirements. The businessman went on to say that he was “extremely honored” to serve his country and that he was delighted to offer to provide “Make in India” drones to the military forces that support front-line soldiers.

“Our drones are built with artificial intelligence and technology that has rapid learning,” the speaker stated.

The update would help the army fulfill its duties for the country while adhering to timelines and operational tempo, thus the drone startup has been asked to send a technical team. Garuda Aerospace will examine the practices and offer a recommendation using its “Make in India” drones to decrease the vulnerability of the Indian military and manual laborers engaged.

These drones will assist with logistics and reconnaissance.
