India's DRDO targets solar-powered UAV

India's state-owned Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) is looking to develop a solar-powered unmanned air vehicle that would be capable of remaining airborne for at least a month.

The DRDO said the new system would be capable of performing long-range sorties and delivering real-time information via secure data links.

Meanwhile, sources within the same organisation have revealed that the Gas Turbine Research Establishment's indigenous Kaveri engine was deemed suitable to power a future unmanned combat air vehicle, which is currently the subject of concept studies.

The Kaveri was originally intended to power the Aeronautical Development Agency's Tejas light combat aircraft.
