How good they are when compared to western similar products

Seeing how IA selects and imports foreign maal first thing, I think these should be at least as good?

Tonbo has won a number of export orders from western countries (and others) if I'm not mistaken too.

The T-rex has been deployed at multiple theatres by IA and paramilitaries including LoC, Rajasthan and most recently Ladakh. IA doesn't really comment on the effectiveness of the systems they induct but given how they've deployed on multiple fronts...I assume it must be pretty good

They should tether it with some drone to cover a very very large area, complete passive surveillance :

like the below one

Our drone scene is only recently picking up with IA placing a $20mn order for IdeaForge's Switch UAV while drone swarms have been displayed during a recent event...unsure who the manufacturer of those. We're looking good with Tonbo but more similar companies need to come up and able meet IA's stringent requirements. The easiest way to get into IA's books is to first sell their systems to foreign units...exactly what both Bangalore's Tonbo and Lucknow's MKU did

Integrating vision systems and sights to drones isn't really a big issue...infact Tonbo also develops aerial systems

Their hummingbird 3500 system is in specific to UAVs. It should only be a software patch to integrate it with ground systems

@Zapper seems like you know a lot about Tonbo imaging
Just open source...I saw on reddit an Israeli unit sporting Tonbo sights which really got me interested in Tonbo's work. That post has been taken down for some reason or maybe I couldn't find it

There is one more Delhi based start up Cron systems, they are doing some decent work in border management too
