by The Technical Blogs


HYDERABAD: Raghu Vamsi Machine Tools Pvt Ltd, a Hyderabad-based manufacturer of high precision engineering components, mechanical sub-assemblies and tooling systems for aerospace & defence, oil & gas and power transmission sectors, has developed a fully indigenous micro turbojet engine – INDRA RV25: 240N.
Though the engine, developed in academic partnership with IIT-Hyderabad, has primarily been developed for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) or drones, it can also have applications in air taxis, jetpacks, auxiliary power units, range extenders and power generation in future, company officials said.
Raghu Vamsi said the first-of-its-kind indigenous micro turbojet engine demonstrates the capability of Indian companies to design, manufacture and deploy cutting-edge aerospace and defence technologies on a global scale. The indigenous development of such cutting-edge technologies will also make not only India self-reliant but also an export hub for critical military products and solutions, it added.
The engine, developed in line with `Make in India’ and `Atmanirbhar Bharat’ initiatives, was unveiled and tested in the presence of Aeronautical Society of India president, ex-DRDO chairman and former scientific advisor to Raksha Mantri Dr G Satheesh Reddy at the Raghu Vamsi facility where he also formally inaugurated the assembly and test lab.
Raghu Vamsi Machine Tools managing director Vamsi Vikas said the fully indigenous engine was a testament to India’s ingenuity and determination to become a global hub for aerospace innovation.
Raghu Vamsi Group COO Arvind Mishra said it showcases the company’s capabilities to design and build mission-critical products and solutions for the aerospace & defence sector.
He said the indigenous development of such cutting-edge technologies will make India self-reliant and an export hub for critical military products and solutions.
“This success will pave the way for us to build an entire suite of micro turbojet engines up to 100 kgf for use in UAVs, missile propulsion, auxiliary power units and range extenders, amongst others,” he said.
