SR-UAV-W will also be getting two more weapons integrated and tested before it is cleared for production. idrw.org was told at Aero India 2023 that the Indian Army will be the primary customer once weapons tests are completed.
SR-UAV-W can also be used for real-time intelligence, surveillance, target acquisition, tracking and reconnaissance that can operate for up to 12 hours and is equipped with Electro-Optical and Infrared (EO/IR) payload that can use the same ground control system as Tapas MALE UAV thus reducing the need for separate ground control system.
