IAF’s Project Cheetah: All major import deals have either been stalled or canceled by the central government. The Indian Air Force is now planning to roll out its Project Cheetah under Make in India. Under this, Indian defense manufacturers will equip Israeli Heron drones with strike capability. After being upgraded under Project Cheetah, accurate and intelligence information about enemy positions will be available through Heron.
Under Project Cheetah, the Indian Air Force wants to upgrade its existing Israeli Heron drones with better communication facilities and missiles that can target enemy positions from long distances. According to the plan, this project was to be completed in collaboration with Israeli arms manufacturers.
Upgradation will be done under Make in India
Government sources told ANI, "Now, the Indian Air Force is planning to go ahead with upgrading its drones by involving Indian defense firms in defense under Make in India." The IAF is spearheading the project that plans to upgrade Israeli drones with strike capabilities and better surveillance in the Navy and Army.
These benefits will come from the upgrade
For a long time, the Indian Defense Forces have been dependent on the IAF Israel-made Khojar-2 and Heron UAVs for reconnaissance and reconnaissance purposes. With improved intelligence capabilities, forces on the ground will be able to get accurate intelligence on the locations in the areas where troops are to be deployed. The upgrade will enable ground stations to remotely pilot and control these aircraft through satellite communications systems.
