The National Mapping Agency of the country Survey of India has decided to go for drone-based large-scale mapping in the state of Uttar Pradesh. The agency has hired Garuda Aerospace for the project.
Agnishwar Jayaprakash, Founder & CEO of Garuda Aerospace said, “We have been awarded the largest service-based contract to deploy 15 drones in UP by the Survey of India, Lucknow."
Garuda Aerospace will deploy drones in the state for high-endurance mapping, surveying and surveillance to capture accurate data. The date will then be processed for informed decision making by the Survey of India.
According to reports, the company is equipped with around 300 drones and 500 pilots who are located in 84 Indian cities.
Jayaprakash also praised recent decisions and changes made by the Central government in the drone rules. He said such progressive policies have put India on a fast-track in the usage of drones.
