The Bengaluru-based startup, NewSpace Research and Technologies in the drone industry has showcased a Flying Wing UAV without any vertical stabilizer, but it does have winglets. NewSpace has not revealed its specifications but it is the possibility that it be able to perform monitoring, surveillance, and target mapping.
Propulsion seems to be provided by a three-blade propeller driven by a backward-mounted pusher configuration connected to the battery pack which could explain that it could also be intended to explore technologies of the flying wing.
NewSpace Research and Technologies last year bagged orders from the Indian Army Army to supply 100 swarm drone units at an estimated cost of $15 million since then have been expanding and showcasing a new product portfolio in recent times that includes a new Hexacopter design, MALE UCAV and Flying Wing UAV as seen above.
NewSpace Research and Technologies along with State-owned Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) are already working on a solar-powered high-altitude platform station (HAPS) called ‘CATS-Infinity’, ALFA-S Glide Pod, ALFA-S loitering munition, CATS Warrior Loyal wingman UAV and CATS Hunter ALCM.
