Blue Bear visits Bangalore ahead of Indian Army UAV competition.
Blue Bear Systems Research (BBSR), specialists in the design, development, evaluation and implantation of unmanned systems, is visiting Bangalore from 11-18 October 2015
The company, which is headquartered in Bedford, UK, is keen to compete for the Indian Army’s requirement for 600 mini-UAVs, which is scheduled to be procured in late 2016.
There are also likely to be further mini-UAV buys from the Indian Navy and Coast Guard in the next few years.

She feels her company is well placed to fulfil many Indian requirements.

We can build in specific mission systems, data links and sensors to meet every need of the customer.”
BBSR currently has a range of mini-UAVs including the iSTART, a fixed wing platform with a 75cm wingspan, the BLACKSTART, which has a 1.5m wingspan, and the RISER, a 4.5kg rotary-wing quadcopter.
