The delivery of the Drishti-10 drones marked a milestone for Adani Defence, showcasing its capabilities in providing cutting-edge technology to the Indian Navy. The Medium Altitude Long Endurance UAVs, based on the Hermes 900 platform, have garnered attention not only for their performance but also for the significant contribution to indigenous manufacturing.
Adani Defence has received token orders for two units each from both the Indian Navy and the Indian Army, signaling a promising start to the utilization of these advanced UAVs in the country’s defense forces.
