Indian Defense Research Development Organization (DRDO) will demonstrate home-made Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV), Rustom II by year-end or early next year.

“We had a major flight demonstration of Rustom II in the month of December. We need to demonstrate the complete flight profile with all the payloads integrated on it. Our aim is to see to it that Rustom II will be able to demonstrate with its full capability with all the payloads integrated on it by year-end or early next year,” Chairman of DRDO, S. Chirstopher said during a press conference on Aero-India international seminar-2017 Saturday.

Rustom II is a medium altitude long endurance (MALE) UAV for reconnaissance and surveillance missions.

Christopher said, the Indian Army came up with an RFP with the same specifications as that of Rustom I. DRDO’s tie-up with private industries for this RFP, there were two specifications that were yet to be demonstrated at that time. They were in terms of endurance of 10 hours and a link range of 200 km.

Both have been demonstrated, in fact we got a link range of 220 km and also a range more than 10 hours.
