Mumbai: Drone startup AUS (Aarav Unmanned Systems) has won a large-scale mapping project from the Survey of India. The $2 million mandate will require the startup to deploy nearly 44 drones to map the entire state of Haryana covering roughly 32000 sq km.

Under this project, AUS will deploy its proprietary survey grade drones to ensure accurate data capturing. The Survey of India will further process the data to update the revenue maps and GIS database. This will help in digitising the land records.

This will be the first project of its kind which has been awarded by the Survey of India for large scale mapping of any state.

Drone startup AUS had bagged the mandate to deploy 80 drones to map villages across four states under the Survey of India’s SVAMITVA scheme. To date, AUS has mapped roughly 10,000 villages and completed its contract for mapping villages in Uttarakhand successfully.

“AUS is proud and excited to have bagged this prestigious project from the Survey of India to complete large scale mapping in Haryana,” said Vipul Singh, Founder and CEO – AUS.

“The project will be pivotal to revive the land records apart from boosting the planning and designing of critical infrastructure for transportation, irrigation, portable water supply etc. across the state of Haryana,” added Singh.

“After our successful SVAMITVA project execution across four states – Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, and Uttarakhand, this is the first large scale mapping project outsourced by the Survey of India. As a company, we are building accurate, insightful, and scalable end-to-end solutions for large-scale and impactful projects,” commented Singh.
Over the last 3 years, the drone startup has covered over 50 lakh acres of area for different applications. And it has worked for different government departments and private enterprises like Tata Steel, Hindalco and others.
