Lynx – Lawrence and Mayo, a reputed Indian engineering equipment provider partners with ideaForge to offer highly specialized drones in the Indian market. This partnership marks a significant development towards countering challenges in various sectors across the country including weather monitoring, agricultural technology and development of urban areas. These sectors will witness increased speed, productivity and improved planning using drone technology. Many more sectors and industries shall get faster and more reliable with the propagation of drones through this partnership with Lynx.
Traditional weather monitoring equipment is frequently obstructed by clouds and variations in the atmosphere due to which accuracy gets compromised. Drones enable a closer view from below the clouds. They collect readings of temperature, pressure, humidity, airspeed and turbulence at a given altitude, which can be interpreted to forecast weather conditions. Built-in features such as optical zoom, 3D imagery and HD vision are a huge asset when planning urban cities. Reliable image and video reference of the pre and post construction terrain render project implementation much more efficient. Agriculture sector benefits a lot from UAV technology. Stressed and healthy crop areas on a farm can be identified with the help of a multispectral camera mounted on a drone. Remedial actions can be taken on the stressed areas to increase crop yield. Various redundancies are eliminated as a result of merely the aerial wide field of view under the drone’s eye.
ideaForge’s UAVs are used in defence, homeland security and industrial applications. Its indigenous and vertically integrated structure accommodates R&D, design, IT, production, pilot training operations, etc. The company aims for end-to-end value creation for its customers.

Lynx will have access to improved inspection, crowd management, traffic control, surveillance and disaster management with the following army of UAVs:
1. Reaching long range, withstanding high endurance, achieving high altitudes with vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) and deployable from all types of terrains is ideaForge’s SWTICH UAV
2. Carrying the advantages of military design philosophies is the VTOL specialist called the Q-series UAV
3. ideaForge’s mapping and surveillance expert is NINJA UAV being highly economical given its light weight and small size
4. Handling maximum redundancy in harsh conditions is the ruggedized UAV named NETRA Pro
5. Integrated with high zoom HD real time video transmission is the tried and tested UAV, applicable to multiple mission purposes
