Garuda Aerospace, HAL Subsidiary Tie Up To Manufacture Indigenous Drones

Garuda Aerospace and Naini Aerospace engineering limited (NAeL) on Monday signed a joint development partnership to manufacture indigenous drones in India.

The joint partnership will enable Garuda to manufacture Advanced Precision Drones on Indian Soil for various applications. The drones will be able to carry a payload of around 25 kg.

NaeL is a wholly owned subsidiary of HAL (Hindustan Aeronautics Limited) under the administrative control of the Ministry of Defence. 

With Garuda Aerospace now having a presence in UP, delivery and access to clients across North, West, East and North East will become seamless. The partnership will also bring about a reduction in cost given the ease of transportation. The factory is located on the Prayagraj-Mirzapur highway, approximately 20 km from Prayagraj city center.

Naini, Prayagraj is being considered for inclusion in the proposed defence industrial corridor of Uttar Pradesh.

In a statement, Agnishwar Jayaprakash, Founder and CEO, Garuda Aerospace said, “Our partnership with Naini Aerospace engineering limited (NAeL) (a wholly owned subsidiary of Hindustan Aeronautics Limited) is a natural next step for us. Our Drone Yatra has also been a grand success and we have pre-booked over 7000 drones at Rs. 4.5 lakhs each. Partnerships with Government PSUs are critical given the knowledge and experience they possess to scale up production. We will continue to stay focused, and partner with industry leaders that will help us achieve our PM’s vision.”

Recently, Garuda Aerospace partnered with BEML at Aero India for drone manufacturing at their Mysore facility and initiated a massive indigenisation campaign. The company has also collaborated with 120 local suppliers with the objective of reducing reliance on foreign imports of drone parts, components, and UAV subsystems.
