Indian paramilitary forces, including the Border Security Force (BSF) and the Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBPF), are set to assess the capabilities of the Archer SR-UAV (Short Range Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) developed by the Aeronautical Development Establishment, a laboratory of the Defence Research Development Organisation (DRDO). This evaluation aims to determine the suitability of the Archer SR-UAV for addressing the operational needs of the paramilitary forces, particularly in countering intrusions and smuggling activities along the Indian borders.

The Indian border security forces, such as face numerous challenges due to infiltration attempts by smuggling rings and terrorist organizations operating in the Punjab sector. These organizations seek to supply arms and ammunition to their cadres in Kashmir, posing a significant threat to national security. Recognizing the need for enhanced surveillance and intelligence capabilities, the paramilitary forces have turned their attention towards the Archer SR-UAV.

The Archer SR-UAV offers impressive capabilities that can be instrumental in addressing these security challenges. It can be equipped with free-fall bombs ranging from 3 to 5 kilograms and can also be armed with air-to-surface missiles fired from the UAV, enabling precision strikes on targets in concentrated areas. Additionally, the Archer SR-UAV is well-suited for intelligence, surveillance, target acquisition, tracking, and reconnaissance (ISTAR) operations. It provides real-time, high-quality imagery, making it an invaluable asset for situational awareness.

With a maximum operational altitude of 22,000 feet and an endurance of up to 12 hours, the Archer SR-UAV can cover vast areas and conduct prolonged missions, effectively monitoring and securing the borders. Equipped with an Electro-Optical and Infrared (EO/IR) payload, the UAV can gather critical visual and thermal data, facilitating efficient detection and tracking of potential threats.
