NewSpace Research and Technologies (NRT), a Bengaluru-based aerospace company, has achieved a remarkable feat in Indian aviation history. Their sub-scale High Altitude Pseudo-Satellite (HAPS UAS) development prototype successfully completed a record-breaking flight test at ATR Chitradurga.

The test surpassed all initial objectives, achieving an astounding flight endurance of over 24 hours. This incredible accomplishment translates to a new national record for India – the longest flight duration ever recorded for an Indian-designed, developed, and manufactured (IDDM) unmanned aerial system (UAS).

NRT’s triumph marks a significant milestone for “Make in India,” a national initiative promoting indigenous manufacturing. This success story not only strengthens India’s self-reliance in aerospace technology but also serves as a catalyst for the growth of the private sector in the country’s defense ecosystem.

Expressing their gratitude, NRT acknowledged the invaluable support received from various organizations:

  • iDEX Defence Innovation Organization
  • Indian Air Force
  • Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL)
  • Aeronautical Development Agency (ADE)
  • DRDO (Defence Research and Development Organisation)
  • Ministry of Defence, Government of India

NRT’s vision extends beyond this record-breaking flight. They aim to achieve a multi-day flight endurance demonstration in the coming months, further solidifying India’s position at the forefront of HAPS UAS technology. This achievement promises to unlock exciting possibilities for applications in various sectors, contributing to India’s growth and technological advancement.
