Tilkata, the hypothetical multi-role drone concept designed for Hindustan Aeronautical Limited (HAL) in reference to the year 2050, is an innovative aircraft specifically designed for city monitoring and rapid response during worst-case scenarios. The conceptual design of Tilkata draws inspiration from the form, gliding abilities, and survival instincts of a flying cockroach.

Concept design

One of the key futuristic features of Tilkata is the utilization of stem cells for its outer shell instead of conventional metals. Stem cells have unique properties that allow them to differentiate into various cell types, making them a promising material for future technological advancements.


The use of stem cells in Tilkata's outer shell could provide enhanced flexibility, durability, and regenerative capabilities, ensuring the drone's resilience against physical stress and impacts.

Another advanced technology integrated into Tilkata is the use of thorium as a fuel source. Thorium is a naturally occurring radioactive substance that possesses potential as an alternative energy source due to its abundant availability and high energy density.


By incorporating thorium as a fuel for Tilkata, the drone can potentially achieve increased operational efficiency, longer flight durations, and reduced environmental impact compared to traditional fuel sources.
