Mission Aerospace Foundation of India (Mission Aerofi), an organisation that promises to develop products from home-grown platforms for the world market is all set to take off in Bengaluru on November 29. The official launch of Aerofi will be held at the National Institute of Advanced Studies (NIAS) situated inside the Indian Institute of Science campus. Former Chief of Air Staff Air Chief Marshal Fali H Major (Retd) will be the chief guest during the occasion.
The first project of Mission Aerofi could be the development of a quad-copter (a flying machine with four rotors). With over 50,000 quad-copters flying all over the world currently, the team is keen to join hands with Belgium for this project. "This Indo-Belgium product will target to incorporate new technologies such as structural batteries, which is part of the airframe structure itself, as also advances in cognitive technologies for multiple quad-copters to cooperate to execute missions. Quad-copters are popular for their short take-off capabilities and are effective for surveillance missions," says Anurakar Mishra, CEO of Genser Aerospace and Information Technologies Private Ltd and the brain behind the new organisation.
