Bangalore-based Cingularity Aerospace has developed two unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) featuring tandem wings, including one that can be used either as a loitering munition or to conduct intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) missions while the second one is focused on combat.

Both the UAVs, displayed at the Aero India 2023 show held in Bangalore from 13 to 17 February, have been developed in collaboration with the Indian Armed Forces’ Joint Services Innovation and Indigenisation Centre (JSIIC), Samuel Gerald, director of Cingularity Aerospace, told Janes .

The first UAV, named β€˜Sierra Tango’ or β€˜Shaurya-1′, has a length of 1.5 m, a height of 0.3 m, and a wingspan of 2.5 m. It can be powered by different propulsion systems such as an internal combustion (IC) engine, a turbine engine, or a brushless direct current (BLDC) motor, depending upon the nature of military missions for which it is deployed.

When powered by an IC engine for ISR missions, the UAV has a speed of 30 m/s, an endurance of 12 hours, a payload capacity of 10 kg, and is capable of covering a distance of up to 150 km.

Shaurya-1 can be armed with up to 18 kg of explosives for use as a loitering munition. The UAV can be launched without a runway. The system also comes with a portable launcher, and an optional parachute recovery system.

In addition, Shaurya-1 can be utilised to deliver food, ammunition, or medical supplies to deployed soldiers.
