Mukesh Ambani is leaving no stone unturned in his effort to diversify from select industries such as oil, retail and telecom to software and beyond. SankhyaSutra Labs, a subsidiary of Jio Platforms, showed drone and aircraft design software. Gautam Adani has also announced his foray by taking a 50% stake in General Aeronautics, a drone maker.

“Accurate and reliable simulations could potentially reduce the need for expensive and time-consuming experiments, such as wind tunnel experiments, used for aircraft design,” said Dr. Vinay Kariwala, Vice President of Business Development and SankhyaSutra Labs.



“This opens up several possibilities by making aircraft design faster and cheaper, and to explore unconventional and radically new design alternatives,” he added.

The company said it uses a combination of physics, mathematics and computer science for its design tools.

Ambani joins Adani to capitalize on India’s drone needs

Last week, SankhyaSutra also showcased its products and solutions for drones at the Drone Festival of India 2022, which was also attended by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

India liberalized its drone policy and lifted restrictions on the use of drones and expanded it from defense only to other sectors such as agriculture, tourism, healthcare and more.

The potential of drones has captivated both Ambani and Gautam Adani, two of India’s richest men. The Adani Group recently took a 50% stake in a drone company called General Aeronautics.

Shares of drones have delivered record returns of up to 160%. All four listed entities – Paras Defense, Zen Technologies, RattanIndia Enterprises and Bharat Electronics had received a boost.

It remains to be seen whether Gautam Adani will follow Mukesh Ambani in launching a special defense vertical as India doubles in achieving
Atmanirbharta (self-reliance) on the defensive.
