New Delhi | Jagran News Desk: The Defence Research and Development Organisation has provided its indigenously-developed drone named Bharat to the Indian Army for carrying out accurate surveillance along the LAC amid the India-China border dispute in Eastern Ladakh."The Indian Army requires drones for accurate surveillance in the ongoing dispute in the Eastern Ladakh area. For this requirement, the DRDO has provided the Bharat drones to it," defence sources were quoted as saying by news agency ANI.

The indigenously-developed Bharat drones have been manufactured by a Chandigarh-based laboratory of the Defence Research and Development Organisation. The drone is equipped with artificial intelligence to detect friends and foes and can take action accordingly.

According to the news agency ANI, The Bharat series of the drones can be listed among "World's most agile and lightest Surveillance drone indigenously developed by the DRDO."

DRDO sources said the "small yet powerful drone works autonomously at any location with great accuracy. The unibody biomimetic design with advance release technology is a lethal combination for surveillance missions".

The drone has been made capable of survival in extreme cold weather temperatures and is being developed further for harsher weather.

The drone provides real-time video transmission during the complete missions and with very advanced night vision capabilities, it can detect humans hidden in deep forests.

The drone which has been built in a way that makes it impossible to be detected by Radar is gaining a lot of popularity because it can operate in swarm operations, sources were quoted as saying by ANI.
