The Solar Group of Companies, which includes Solar Industries India Ltd and Economic Explosives Ltd in Nagpur, produced the equipment. According to an official, the company, which is a global leader in packaged explosives and accessories, accepted the challenge to enter the field of drones and loitering munitions in order to keep up with improvements in defence technologies and use force multipliers to counter enemy threats.

It is developing a variety of drones for ammunition delivery in order to provide the Indian armed forces with a new capability. He claims that these drones can be utilised in both offensive and defence roles. These drones will drop specially developed weapons and then return in an offensive capacity. They’re effective against hostile infantry, bunkers, vehicles, and tanks.

The company is working on a mission to begin production in January of next year.

A loitering munition (also known as a suicide drone or kamikaze drone) is a type of weapon system that loiters around a target area for a period of time, searches for targets, and attacks once one is found.

Loitering munitions provide for faster reaction times against covert or hidden targets that appear for brief periods of time without endangering high-value assets such as aeroplanes in close proximity to the target area, as well as more selective targeting.

Loitering weapons have been developed for a variety of tasks around the world, from relatively long-range strikes and fire support to tactical, very short-range battlefield systems that may be carried in a backpack.

Through the import route, India has been reliant on this specialized munition. He claims that Solar Industries will be the first Indian firm to fully indigenize and develop loitering munitions in-house.

It will not only outperform imported ammunition in terms of technological characteristics and specifications, but it will also be nearly 40% cheaper, according to the official. The corporation has set a deadline of February next year to finish this assignment.
