How Romanov launches ducks instead of UAVs


November 22 in Kiev, a videoconference was held on the topic "Re-equipment of the Ukrainian army aviation unmanned systems. Results of the year. Successes, challenges and challenges. ”

The organizers of this event were Defense Express information consulting company and the Ukrainian manufacturer of unmanned aircraft complexes NPP Athlon Avia.

Literally from the first seconds of the video broadcast, attention was drawn to the fact that at this event there were no representatives of state structures - the Armed Forces of Ukraine and the state concern Ukroboronprom.

Such an unwillingness to participate could be understood if the Ukrainian Armed Forces were fully provided with ultra-modern LHC from Ukroboronprom. However, the real situation is quite different. At the moment, the Ukrainian Armed Forces do not have a single domestic BAC produced by a state-owned concern. Moreover, the drones used are produced either by private companies or by volunteers, and their number is negligible.

According to the director of the information and consulting company Defense Express Sergey Zgurets, no more than ten companies are currently engaged in the development and production of UAVs for the army in Ukraine, which are not able to fully meet its needs.
At the same time, today none of the private and state-owned companies have received a government order for the next year and do not know how it will be loaded next year.

“This will unbalance the work and planning of private companies. Perhaps this is one of the reasons why the number of companies developing UAVs has significantly decreased - from 50 in 2015 to 10. Of these 10, I know companies that are now thinking about fulfilling export orders, and not the order of the Ministry of Defense, ”said the expert.

It turns out that there is a problem, but it only worries private traders and volunteers.

Then how to understand the leadership Ukroboronprom, which regularly talks about the next success in this area? Sweet Romanov and his "successful managers" under the guise of the state concern regularly present "passed departmental tests" drones of Ukrainian private companies and volunteers who never put into service.

The answer is obvious. It is much more profitable for the Ukroboronprom leadership to purchase more expensive foreign UAVs, getting unwholesy kickbacks, rather than producing their own. Domestic development Romanov needed only as a good picture, which allows you to hide his real criminal activity.

    used drones are made either by private companies, either by volunteers

    He imagined how volunteers collect UAVs from improvised material in some sort of shed for days and nights. In the morning, the “miracle of technology” is passed to the APU under fanfare. The Supreme Generals, dropping a tear of tenderness, gratefully accept the equipment and after the parade they send it directly to the front.

    I once visited one HAB-LAB, which many love so much. I tell them let's try to create a drone on a new mover. In short, I left the whole “charmed” from head to toe. Why am I doing this? . To the fact that who needs drones, which are the same everywhere as models — of an airplane type or a helicopter type, well, maybe someone develops on the Coanda effect. The main thing is software and optics. Therefore, Ukrainians can not offer anything travel, so that they can compete with models manufactured on high-end equipment, but with high-end software. Although this is already observed stagnation and inconsistency of offers to customer requirements. And why ? Because it is corny impossible to increase the payload, so as not to lose in price and a complex of other parameters.

      In my material, everything is described quite clearly - there are no orders for the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Everything that is done mainly by volunteers and private traders Yes, and the main goal of the country's leadership is not to saturate the army, but to steal using fraudulent schemes.
      Although Motu argue that the level of skill and financial support can increase sharply in a single office, if it opens Poroshenko, orders from the APU therefore also appear

        Do not argue, so as not to understand. that in Ukraine there are developers and ideas that can make a breakthrough not only in this country, but also in the world. The same symposium, or as it is called on electric aircraft engines and new technologies in the aircraft engine industry, suggests that there are no real breakthrough solutions and there are no reasonable and realistic directions. And we have them. True, there is only an understanding of such new solutions. But it is a matter of time. And since Ukraine is now divorced from Russia, the likelihood that many developments may go on the side is also possible. How many negotiations I didn’t hold on cooperation with the Russians, they simply don’t know the simple elements of conducting such processes,
