Rustom 1

Rustom 1 is an unmanned air vehicle developed by India's Defence Research & Development Organisation (DRDO).  DRDO has modified the aircraft to include an Automatic Identification System (AIS) that will identify Indian fishing vessels along the international maritime boundary line between India and Sri Lanka.  The tactical UAV will be capable of flying from 8 to 10 hour sorties.

Rustom was first successfully flown in 2010.
