Design of multi-purpose unmanned combat aircraft DRDO Aura began specialists in the field of aerospace engineering and technology in 2012 year. The new combat drone on a plan of Indian professionals must ensure not only the implementation of most of the military tasks, which mainly refers reconnaissance, detection of sea and air targets, patrolling and implementation of search operations, but in fact, self-destruction of a potential enemy forces, for which UAVs DRDO Aura to be equipped with the bomb and missile load.

UAV DRDO Aura models designed in accordance with the "stealth" technology that allows drone to remain invisible to enemy radar stations and air defense, in addition, according to representatives of the Indian company «Defense Research and Development Organization», an unmanned aerial vehicle can climb 10,5 to an altitude of thousands of meters, making it invisible and visually, thereby enhancing the operational efficiency of the drone.

Full flight performance of the drones at the moment because of the secrecy of the project is not fully disclosed, however, officially reported that the UAV will have dimensions comparable to a small aircraft, while its weight will be about 15 tons.

As a visual, on unmanned aircraft DRDO Aura will be installed electro-optical camera and a high resolution infrared camera, providing the opportunity to observe in an unfavorable or a lack of visibility. Among other things, the UAV DRDO Aura to be equipped with a radar installation for tracking the movement of air targets within 350 kilometers.

As the power plant on bespilotnike DRDO Aura will be used turbojet engine, which will provide the opportunity to drone speeds of up to 920 km \ h.
