Guardian Fixed Wing

Guardian UAV is small category UAV also called Mini UAV. The craft is portable and can be operated in most terrains with small clearances because of short takeoff run portable GCS. Can be transported in a small vehicle. The airframe and part avionics have been designed and manufactured in India so the components and maintenance cost would be bare minimum. The autopilot has been developed in India so upgrade of software would keep the technology up to date. The propulsion system is all electric using high power electric motors powered by batteries that can be charged on eld so the operations are simple.
The GCS software and the autopilot software are windows based making it easier for most would be customers to use the system. The operational cost of the craft is bare minimum thus providing cost effective surveillance systems as compared to ground based vehicles.
