India plans to develop solar powered UAVs


India is planning to develop solar-powered unmanned flying machines with the capability of remaining airborne for at least a month in all weather conditions. The one-of-its-kind UAV will be designed and developed to endure long-range sorties ranging up to a month in all weather conditions. The flying machine will have specially-designed solar panels to keep it airborne even in nights and cloudy weather conditions with the help of power generated and saved during the day. Keeping in mind the payload that would be fitted on these UAVs and the nature of missions, special attention would be paid to keep their frame light but strong enough to endure different weather conditions. The UAV would be capable of providing real-time information and data of the area through a secure data link.
