MAI presented its own-developed firearms UAV on "Army-2017"

27
In the student design bureau of aviation modeling (SKB-AM) of the Moscow Aviation Institute, a unique unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) was developed by the order of Concern VKO "Almaz - Antey", capable of carrying automatic firearms weapon and to produce aimed shooting at flying objects, while maintaining full controllability, the Public Relations Department of the Moscow Aviation Institute reported to Military Survey.

Developments of this level of complexity have not previously been presented by either Russian or foreign design bureaus. Engineers from MAI managed to create a system that effectively stabilizes the device in the air when firing. In the development of innovative solutions implemented in the layout of the aircraft and the damping system.

MAI presented its own-developed firearms UAV on "Army-2017"


When creating this development, a number of interesting engineering problems were solved. If the main goal of developers is the quality of flight when constructing a “normal” UAV, here it was necessary to fix a weapon on the aircraft and to ensure both maximum stability and high accuracy of hitting the target
- the head of SKB-AM MAI, Igor Trifonov, said

The vertical take-off and landing UAV created in MAI (the model has not yet received a name) has a wing span of three meters, its flight weight is 23 kilogram, and the flight time is 40 minutes.

This UAV is implemented according to the “Duck” aerodynamic scheme: this made it possible to concentrate the application of forces from firing closer to the center of mass of the apparatus, which would have been impossible with the classical scheme,
- Igor Trifonov explained. -
To start the device does not require a catapult or a runway, thus ensuring the mobility of using a new design, the device can take off from any surface and without the time spent on deployment.


Earlier in MAI, unmanned aerial vehicles of vertical takeoff and landing under the “Duck” scheme were already created, but this development is the first one that is capable of carrying automatic firearms and producing high-precision firing at air targets. The previous sample solved the problems of developing algorithms and systems for flight modes and vertical take-off / landing.

The development is controlled by the operator through a visor: on-board television systems for detecting, targeting and aiming are installed on the device. The shooting complex at the time of testing was implemented on the basis of the smooth-bore carbine "12 Wild Boar Hammer" 12 caliber with electronic lowering and box magazine on 10 cartridges. The device makes shots in automatic mode, continuing to fly with a given course, and if the target is not hit, then you can continue to follow the object without further adjusting the course.

Work on this project at SKB-AM MAI started in October 2016. At the moment, the development has passed a full cycle of tests, including an assessment of shooting accuracy and controllability, and has been handed over to the customer.

In the closed pavilion of the Concern VKO "Almaz - Antey" on the forum "Army-2017" our UAV occupies a central place.

      No one is hiding here, the wrong times. In local kb there are gatherings that devour the brightest idea due to the limitations of their thinking. People who know and are passionate about the real thing in America have nothing to do. I say, because I know by hearsay.

      Some may be, and judging by the number of young people in our research institutes and military-industrial complex .. Russia is still being reborn and our Kulibins prefer their homeland (albeit ugly). Here, there is freedom and purpose .. But it’s already sick of move dogs and Coca-Cola everything is artificial! And their smiles are sweet and salary in dollars especially .. negative

    Well done of course schoolchildren, but damn when is it all to appear in the army? Shoigu is an advanced man, he himself met, but it seems that lobbying for interests is taking place here. It hurts a lot of money to give one and the result is ZERO! And others can produce, but never receive an order!

    1. On the pictures and they have no release
    The shooting complex at the time of testing was implemented on the basis of the smooth-bore carbine "12 Wild Boar Hammer" 12 caliber with electronic lowering and box magazine on 10 cartridges.

    2. "Created", "have no analogs", etc.
    2.1. In 2016, research and development projects were completed at TsNTU “Dynamics” related to the determination of the technical appearance of a promising universal unmanned aircraft complex with vertical takeoff and landing.



    At the next stage of the project, experimental UAV samples of vertical takeoff and landing of various aerodynamic schemes, ground control station, radio command and information interaction and satellite navigation and landing systems, as well as a prototype target load and a prototype UAV control center were made. Conducted bench, ground and flight testing with experimental samples of UAVs, refined appearance and requirements for the promising complex and its component parts. Finally, flight experiments were successfully carried out with UAV samples of all aerodynamic schemes created under this project.


    As a result of the research, a unique scientific and technical reserve has been created in the field of creating promising UAVs with vertical takeoff and landing,having a wide range of military and civilian applications.
    if what, then

    2.2. In Russia, the development of a new dual-use unmanned aerial vehicle "Pheasant" has begun, which will be able to land on the tail.

      Not bad ! There was once a discussion about the possibilities and limitations of ground-based air defense and air defense systems ... among the limitations are the limitations of radar detection and ground-based radar surveys (and the telescopic mast here is not a solution to the problem) ... I suggested placing a radar (antenna system like AFAR) on a multi-quadcopter platform ... so this "cartoon" is the initial basis for demonstrating this proposal. soldier

    You need to create a drone drone. Since the guns against electronic warfare drones operate at a short distance, it is necessary to put such an installation on a drone. So that he as if on a rope brought to the base a captured enemy object.

    laughing “Gunshot drones, my God, what a delight, who writes these headlines?” As Faina Ranevskaya would say, if I went to VO to read.
    Well, on the topic, I really don’t understand the problem of creating something small or unmanned, in the USSR aircraft modeling was very developed and there were a lot of Kulibins in TM and Science and Life, take binder and reproduce request Or are there all the B90 inventions dragged west?
