In his exclusive interview to Livefist, DRDO chief Dr Avinash Chander, when asked specifically about unmanned programmes, said, “We are working on a high stealth capability, optimising the weapon carrying capability. Various elements have been identified. It is not a ‘formal project’ at the moment. Before we come to that, we have to get a lot of enabling technologies. We are looking at those areas. Once we are confident of that, we will take up the project.”
The secret USAV programme was first revealed on Livefist three years ago.
