    Lockheed Martin shows interest in UAV made in India

    STAFF WRITER 20:12 HRS IST


    New Delhi, Sep 1 (PTI) A team from Delhi Technical University (DTU) which developed an urban aerial UAV has claimed that lack of interest shown by DRDO and some private companies in their project led to a US defence major showing interest to take it further.

    The DTU team claimed to have approached the DRDO to help and fund its programme to develop a small urban UAV and send it for participating in an unmanned aircraft systems competition in the United States.

    "Last September, we had approached DRDO. They were taking a lot of time to decide on the issue and the process was also quite tedious. So, after some time, we decided to seek help from private Indian companies in the sector," DTU's UAV team leader Rochak Chadha claimed.
