Mother Drone releasing Sucide attack Drone 😊 so theatrically each mother Drone can carry two sucide Drones , so total 150 sucide Drones 😊
Guys what happens to mother Drone after releasing those attack drones?
Like if the attack drones are exhausted and there's still a target, can the mother drone also act as an suicide drone or will it return back to its base?

Each hexacopter can carry 4x mini suicide drones. Total 75x4 = 300 suicide drones and 600kgs of explosives. With 50km range, these loitering munitions will be a nightmare for enemy soldiers.

The next thing we need to develop , EW payloads for these swarm Drones ,

which can mimic other Aircraft's.

Swarm Drones capable of co operative Electronic jamming .

sensors which can send data to aircrafts or any other platforms.

And any other sensor RWR , IRST or any other which can send data to Fighters Or Missiles for engagement.

Need to up the platforms from hexacopters to something similar to US military's LOCUST or Perdix swarm drones.

Let's hope we operationalise this technology as quickly as possible. Like getting an initial version without all the bells and whistles which will get some stuff done. Like having a swarm with 75 drones or even 50 will offer us a quantum jump in capability . We will be able to inflict damage some distance away from own positions at a low cost and without exposing our troops .


The drones are from Sameer Joshi's startup New Space .

Raksha Mantri Shri Rajnath Singh unveils India’s First Indigenously Designed & Developed Driverless Metro Car; Calls it a manifestation of the true spirit of ‘Atmanirbhar Bharat’


Raksha Mantri Shri Rajnath Singh, unveiled state-of-the-art ‘Driverless Metro Car’ for Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) at a function held at BEML’s Bangalore Complex on 15 January 2021. Indigenously designed & developed state-of-the-art Driverless Metro trains are being manufactured at BEML Bangaluru Complex.


Speaking on the occasion Shri Rajnath Singh, said MMRDA project has 63 per cent indigenous content which will enhance to 75 per cent in next two to three years. “This reflects Indian Industry’s overwhelming response to Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi’s Atmanairbhar Bharat Abhiyan call” he said. Raksha Mantri said this driver-less metro project will act as a source of inspiration to other Indian companies, particularly the defence industry to help India emerge as a manufacturing hub which, in turn, will fulfil 5 Billion US Dollar defence export target and 25 Billion US Dollar defence industry turn over by 2025. Raksha Mantri said Ministry of Defence has taken a number of steps like introducing Defence Production and Export Promotion Policy (DPEPP) 2020 and new Defence Acquisition Policy incorporating provisions for purchasing equipment and platforms with more indigenous technology. Citing the government’s recent decision to procure 83 Tejas fighter aircrafts from HAL at the cost of nearly Rs. 50 thousand Crore, Raksha Mantri said it will create over 50000 new job opportunities and “about 500 Indian companies including MSMEs as well as private companies will get a business boost with the HAL’s Tejas project.”


Shri Rajnath Singh expressed hope that MMRDA driver-less technology will lead to its expansion into other fields of defence such as tanks and fighter planes in the future. While appreciating BEML, Raksha Mantri termed the company as a true ‘Atmanirbhar Warrior’. He expressed his happiness that the Covid-19 pandemic, which has halted progress across the world, has had almost no impact on the production activities of BEML and DPSUs.


Welcoming Raksha Mantri, Chairman & Managing Director, BEML Dr. Deepak Kumar Hota, said,” Raksha Mantri’s visit to BEML is a true reflection of the unstinted support and encouragement that he is providing to BEML. BEML’s foray into metro manufacturing has been a defining moment for the urban transportation scenario of the country. With a major market share in the country in direct competition with well-established international players, BEML has made its mark as the only Indian company in this high technology field.”


Shri Rajnath Singh also virtually launched the Aerospace Assembly Hangar, situated within BEML’s Bangalore Complex, and unveiled first indigenously manufactured Tatra Cabin by BEML.


Secretary, Defence Production Shri Raj Kumar and other senior officials of MoD and BEML were also present on the occasion.

A question to these swarm drone will an emp take all of them out?
Naturally, but it would not be all that easy when hundreds of drones are locked on to your assets, even if you installed a Close in Weapon System that could fire EMP onto the drones, a few might still get lucky on the target.

Drones are small and therefore are hard targets.

Do u have any more info about this EW system.

From the looks I think it's a signal intelligence platform , can do communication jamming probably can jam UAV data links also . Don't have any official information . Google may help
