Defense Ministry will receive drones to hunt enemy UAVs

25
Russian military will receive unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) fighters armed with rifle complexes with special ammunition, according to News.




The drone finds in the air and destroys various enemy UAVs, including miniature ones. Also, the “hunter” can fire at targets on the ground - for example, personnel, shelters or cars.

As told in the Ministry of Defense, the drone-hunter is already undergoing tests, the outcome of which will be the decision to adopt the product. His main task is the search and destruction of the enemy's UAV, primarily quadcopters. For the first time the novelty was presented at the closed part of the exposition of the Army-2017 exhibition-forum.

“Little is known about the novelty. This is a small aircraft. Unlike most UAVs, it is launched into the air not with a catapult, but starts vertically. The dimensions of the drone-hunter allow you to transfer it to the calculation of several people, as well as transport it by car. Thanks to this, the novelty will be able to quickly deploy and cover up its troops from enemy UAVs, ”the article says.

The product is armed with a rifle complex with special ammunition, which is undermined near the target and hit it with fragments.

The device can patrol and destroy targets both automatically and manually. In the first case, he is given the area or route where he is searching. Having discovered the targets, the “hunter” requests permission from the “earth” to open fire. In manual mode, the operator independently controls the device and searches for targets.

Denis Fedutinov, an expert in the field of unmanned aerial vehicles:

This way of dealing with drones has several advantages. Such hunters can hit targets at long distances from the attacked vehicle. But, on the other hand, such systems have obvious problems - restrictions on the weight and dimensions of the loads, difficulty with aiming, recoil when fired, etc. Successful solution of these technical problems can open up new opportunities for the military while minimizing the risk of hitting own forces and assets.

    According to the Ministry of Defense, the drone hunter is already undergoing tests, which will result in a decision on the adoption of the product for service. Its main task is to search for and destroy the enemy UAVs, primarily quadrocopters

    Question-How will this drone detect mini-drones of the adversary, despite the fact that quadrocopters are generally an inconspicuous target in principle?

          In the yard, children from wealthy families take turns launching a drone.
          And children from dysfunctional families take turns launching drin - then into a drone,
          then in children from wealthy families. lol

          ... If the image from the copter is transmitted to the operator via a radio signal, then probably there is a direction finder scanning the "air" on the ground. When determining the "coordinates" of the target drone, information is transmitted to the "base" of the UAV interceptor soldier

        Well, well ... And if the drone is 1.5 square meters in size? Its blades will grind the eagle into minced chicken.
        And this is not to mention the fact that the eagle will not greatly interfere with the movement of such an "pepelats".

      It is possible by thermal or vortex trail ... Here it is interesting otherwise. Well, I discovered, and then what? How will he determine whose he is? It turns out on all the equipment you need to put the "friend or foe" system? That is, the weight and volume of equipment is growing?

      I agree, it is understandable if in manual mode, then they will be tracked from the ground, but if in automatic mode (certain zone) .... will he have his own radar?

        And how, excuse me, will you track a falcon-sized mini-drone from the ground if it flies at an altitude of say 3 km?

    Question-How will this drone detect adversary mini-drones?

    everything is very simple,
    perhaps on future versions there will be an L-band radar integrated into the carrier wing, possibly as an analog of the AFAR HNUMXL-036-1 from Su-01
    only redesigned version for mini UAV

    Also, the "hunter" can fire at targets on the ground - for example, personnel, shelters or cars.

    If this function is expanded to include cumulative ammunition, an excellent means of monitoring compliance with the Minsk agreements on the cultivation of heavy equipment and artillery will be obtained. And in combination with electronic warfare to suppress detection systems, you will get a "sweet couple" in general. One such drone with limited capabilities of its detection and destruction is capable of drastically changing the situation on the demarcation line between Ukraine and LDN in a week. APU and National Guard at nightmare at night - that’s it. It is a pity that the development dragged on so much.

    What is the caliber for explosive ordnance? 23 or 30 mm? 2A42 weighing 115 kg ?? It will be Like a memory stick on a jihadmobile - 1 shot at the target, and the rest anywhere, because the drone will blow back? And ammunition? Mass of a fully equipped drone? A lot of questions. I would like to believe, but with difficulty.
