Russia will test the drone drone at the end of this year

According to from 14 February 2012, before the end of 2012, the Russian Federation’s first assault unmanned aerial vehicle will be tested in the Russian Federation. The chief of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Russia, N. Makarov, said: "We will begin to test the middle-class drone in the shock version at the end of this year." About what device will be tested, it was not specified.

In October last year, the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation concluded contracts for research and development work with the Kazan Falcon Design Bureau and the Transas company in St. Petersburg. The cost of the agreements amounted to about 3 billion rubles. Within the framework of the projects, it is planned to build reconnaissance and attack drones, respectively, weighing about 1 tons and up to 5 tons.

As the vice president of Transas, V. Godunov, said, the company concluded an agreement on strategic partnership with Sokol Design Bureau. The two companies will build drones jointly. Transas will develop control systems and on-board electronics, and Sokol will directly build UAVs and ground complexes for them. Both vehicles, according to plans, will make the first flights in 2014. With 2015, it is planned to begin their flight tests.

In January, 2010 reported that Tupolev was developing a medium-range UAV project. It is based in part on a reconnaissance-strike complex with a Tu-300 apparatus. (Technical details were not specified). In 2007, the OKB "Klimov" and "MiG" presented the shock drone Scat, which was created using stealth technology. Now this project is closed, but its achievements will be applied in projects of promising UAVs.

The Transas company is the developer of the Dozor-600 drone. This drone can be used as a shock or reconnaissance vehicle. For the first time, a UAV was shown to the public at the Max-2009 air show. His trials were scheduled to begin in 2010, and since then there has been no information about this project.

      Most importantly, this is our UAV and that our mines purchase it. defense. (and not buy. our min. defense overseas UAV spending crazy money).

        Well, why, the money has already been spent. We purchased UAVs from the Jews, and not of the latest development. But the news certainly can not but rejoice. From the almost toy reconnaissance, which by the way are very necessary, not a lot of time has passed. So keep it up! fellow

          Jewish probably bought for the sake of "picking the filling" and so on

    it’s very good that they took on UAVs, we miss them

    Who knows why the ramp was closed? Judging by the layout, a decent car could have turned out!

      It’s just that in the KLA all the posts are held by former Sukhoi employees, so MiG is cutting down all promising projects in the bud.

    Immensely happy for Transas, these guys in a fairly short time became leaders in the navigation market, they make very high-quality and convenient software.

    Guys, tell me, what are the specific advantages of UAVs today? Well, besides saving the pilot's human life. Stealth? Cheaper price?

      which by the way are very necessary, not a lot has passed before the shock time. Keep it up!

      small sizes give inconspicuity, many of them do not need an aerodrome, some people can fly for days, greater autonomy and efficiency, more payload, more than pilot overloads. Cheaper only for small scouts, play a prank, drums and long-range are not cheap. Well, the life of the pilot is also not cheap, it’s not enough, cooking is expensive.

    The ideology of our R&D is somewhat different (in terms of open ife). "Manual" operator control, only one of the options. The basis is the elements of artificial intelligence. The ability to independently make a decision in an evolving situation and implement it.

    Yes, we need drones, and domestic drones are generally excellent, do not buy them to us like the Mistrals ...

    ... in the Russian Federation will be tested the first shock unmanned aerial vehicle of Russian development.
    In my opinion, it’s too early for solemn speeches. Let's wait, see what happens, I hope a decent device with a competitive filling.

    Judging by the picture, far from the Predator or Global Hawk and write off 3 billion rubles for IT ... well, you know! They steal well ...

    This NGS FIG understand. That aching that you have to buy foreign samples, because there are none of your own, then he reports what Russian samples are experiencing.

    I doubt that Israel sold us the UAV with the same filling as at home. And in order to dig into the filling, it is not necessary to buy the entire apparatus - no one has yet dismissed the SVR and GRU.
    If ours made decent devices - then a huge RESPECT to them. Only by creating competitive images can one shut the throats of everyone who shouts that Russia is not capable of anything (especially to the screamers in Russia itself and in its armed forces).

    The photo does not hit the UAV.
    This is the "DOZOR 100" UAV
    Purpose: Air monitoring of civilian infrastructure and special purposes; Patrol of long objects (pipelines, railways, power lines, land and sea borders); Search, detection, identification and tracking of objects in an area or route strip;
    Coastal Operations; Environmental Activities and Environmental Monitoring

    1. "Transas" does not do UAVS. Their designs for air surveillance.
    Dozor 600 is unlikely to be used as an IMPACT.

    It has pistonfour stroke
    TTX does not allow:
    Practical ceiling, m - 7500
    Cruising speed, km / h - 130-150
    Maximum speed, km / h - up to 210

    Practical range, km - 3700
    Flight duration, h - up to 30
    despite the resemblance to the MQ-9 Reaper.

    The most sold strike UAV based on the "Dan" UAV (OKB "Sokol").
