According to the latest media reports, Archer Ng (Next-Generation) is in the final stages of fabrication. This indigenously developed Weaponized Medium Altitude Long Endurance (MALE) Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) is expected to be rolled out for developmental trials by the end of next month or the subsequent month. The first flight of the UAV is planned for October, marking a significant milestone in India’s UAV development program.

Archer Ng has been designed to perform a range of missions, including Intelligence, Surveillance, Target Acquisition, and Reconnaissance (ISTAR) as well as strike operations.

It boasts an impressive Line of Sight (LOS) range of 250 kilometres and a Beyond Line of Sight (BLOS) capability of up to 1000 kilometres. With its ability to operate at altitudes of up to 30,000 feet and an endurance of over 18 hours, Archer Ng provides an extended reach and persistent surveillance capability.

The UAV features a Composite Airframe Structure, which offers a balance of strength and weight efficiency. Its Piston Engine Propulsion ensures reliable performance, while the Dual Redundant Flight Control System (FCS) provides enhanced safety and control.

Archer Ng is equipped with a comprehensive suite of payloads, including Electro-Optical/ Synthetic Aperture Radar (EO/SAR), Electronic Warfare (EW) systems, Automatic Takeoff and Landing (ATOL), Air-to-Ground Communication System (AGCS), Ground Data Terminal (GDT), and SATCOM (Satellite Communication) capabilities.

One notable design feature of Archer Ng is its Single Engine Twin Boom configuration. This design not only enhances the aircraft’s aerodynamic efficiency but also allows for a compact and streamlined structure. The innovative design ensures optimal performance and manoeuvrability while minimizing drag and maximizing fuel efficiency.
