Czech-Indian companies announce new venture during Aero India 2021 aimed at expanding UAV services in India

Indian technology company BEML and Czech UAV provider Primoco UAV signed a Memorandum of Understanding during the Aero India 2021 show and agreed to cooperate on the establishment of a ‘centre of excellence’ for unmanned technology located in the BEML region of the country.

According to a Primoco press release, both parties adhere to a ‘make in India’ policy and see a wide potential for rapid development of the cooperation allowing them to implement a common solution into several segments of the Indian economy, law enforcement and defence markets.

The centre of excellence will be built on the latest European standards with the intention of becoming the benchmark for mid-class UAV operation in the region. It will provide a full range of services from assembly to post-delivery support and training in operation of Primoco’s One 150 model to Indian and regional customers.

Shri Ajit Kumar Srivastav of BEML commented the cooperation: “For BEML this step into the UAV market is a natural direction of progress. We are delighted by the opportunity to build a Center of excellence in India able to perform assembly, production, full flight operation, customization, maintenance and training up to the latest standards. The fact that Primoco UAV is approved as a Production and Design organization as per EMAR rules and is also compliant to EASA SORA rules gives a guarantee of introduction of the latest available technology. This combination of certificates and approvals of Primoco UAV is a condition for successful transfer of technology. We are already discussing initial projects with potential customers and we see a tremendous potential for an Indian-made UAV to fulfil a wide variety of tasks in India and in the region. We want to become a clear leader in this technology, able to produce at the latest level of knowledge needed for safe operation of UAVs within general airspace.”
