PS-1925 is a drone manufacturer, technology and service provider company that designs Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs). The company’s motto is to bring in drone technology into India on the principles of Make in India – manufactured, designed and developed in India itself. If we develop and design our prototype in India, it can help us to reach out to the international market as well. Rather than buying drones from other countries, we can make our own professional, automated and reliable drones. We are proposing “Desi Drones” for 7 major sectors that govern major shares in the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of the Indian Economy: Agriculture – “Krishi PS-1925”, Disaster Management and Relief Operations – “Rahat PS-1925”, Defence – “Vayu PS-1925”, E-commerce – “Courier PS-1925”, Health – “Chikitsa PS-1925”, Energy – “Urja PS-1925” and Transportation – “Yatra PS-1925”.
