NETRAv2 VTOL UAV

A fully autonomous UAV

NETRAv2 is a fully autonomous, man-portable micro UAV developed in collaboration with DRDO. The UAV can be launched from confined spaces to cover a circle of 10km diameter over a height of 200m. Its zoom-in provision for identifying human activity up to 500m away has been an indispensable asset to surveillance, reconnaissance and rescue operations at numerous occasions. The UAV is equipped with fail safe modes like auto-land on low battery and return-to-home on communication failure, so that it can intelligently respond and adapt to unexpected glitches, if any.

Salient features of the UAV include image stabilization, autonomous target tracking and day-night cameras which are programmed to provide real-time footage in daytime as well as pitch dark conditions.

NETRAv2 is indigenous, robust, and ready to be deployed for military, civil and industrial applications.
