India’s First Drone Common Testing Centre

Facts for Prelims

India’s First Drone Common Testing Centre

News: Tamil Nadu is establishing the country’s first Common Testing Centre for Unmanned Aerial Systems.

• The initiative is led by the Tamil Nadu Industrial Development Corporation (TIDCO) as part of the TN Defence Industrial Corridor, aimed at nurturing the aerospace and defence industry ecosystem.
• The lack of a Common Testing Centre has been a barrier for organizations in this sector. TIDCO has initiated the setup of such testing centres under the Centre’s Defence Testing Infrastructure Scheme.
• This initiative aligns with Tamil Nadu’s commitment to fostering a robust defence and aerospace manufacturing ecosystem, attracting investors and contributing to the self-reliance of the country in the aerospace and defence sector.
