Darpa Aurora - a project of the Indian UAV, developed by «Darpa».

Design of unmanned air vehicle model Darpa Aurora began in 2015 year, while, in spite of its futuristic look, the representatives of Indian companies have declared that they intend to implement the project within 8 years, while, despite the relatively high cost of innovative UAV, the device suggests be very promising.

Today Indian drone is positioned as a multi-purpose air vehicle designed for use in scientific, military and civilian spheres. In the scientific field, this drone will be used to study different kinds of phenomena, monitoring the state of the climate and so on., While in the civil and military UAVs is expected to use as reconnaissance, evacuation and transport device, while in addition, UAVs can perform and a host of other problems.

The estimated length of the UAV Darpa Aurora will be about 10 meters, while the scale of the device of the wings will have about 15 meters, which in turn will ensure the device is quite wide opportunities, including the transport of goods, people, and so forth.

The power of the Indian perspective UAV presented 24 engines, thus, the device will have the ability to perform takeoff and landing vertically, and a maximum of UAV flight speed should be be about 500 km \ h., Which is very effective, especially if we take into attention to the fact that the effective range following the drone will be about 1 thousand kilometers.
