Zeus Numerix, An Indian engineering company that provides total solutions to engineering problems in the field of Computational Fluid Dynamics recently played host to Army Regional Technology Node (RTN), Pune officers Brig NP Singh, Brig Sibal, & Col Ramdas. What caught the eye of many was what seems to be 1 meter lightweight Smart Micro Munition that the company might be working on.
While the company has not revealed much about the mystery weapon that was showcased to them but it seems to be a lightweight Smart Micro Munition that has been developed to be operated from unmanned aerial vehicles [UAV] or light attack aircraft for high precision strikes against fixed and mobile targets.
It is likely that it will have an Armour piercing High Explosive Blast Fragmentation, Thermobaric warhead with laser guidance to engage Main Battle Tanks, Light Armoured Vehicles, and Personnel Vehicles.
Indian firm like Zeus Numerix traditionally has not been weapons manufacturing company but has initiated research and development of land systems, like 81 mm Mortar. Zeus Numerix was enaged by State-owned Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd (HAL) to help in integrating the BrahMos missile on the Sukhoi-30MKI fighter and the company was also engaged to reduce the stealth signature of inshore patrol vessels developed by GRSE. The company has executed over 200 assignments for the Indian defense sector to date.
