Military Review

A secure communication system has been created for Russian micro-drones.

Russian combat micro-robots and miniature UAVs of the new generation (no more than a few dozen centimeters in size) will be equipped with the domestic digital communications and video transmission system “Reset”, the newspaper reports News.




According to the newspaper, with a mass of all 30 g, it allows you not only to control the drone, but also to receive a protected video signal in high resolution at a distance of 1 km. The novelty has already been tested in Syria as part of the Scarab system.

The system "Reset" is recognized as suitable for equipping military miniature robotic systems, an experimental batch is already in production, the military department said.

“Reset” is a microcircuit weighing less than 30 g. At the same time, the product provides a fully-fledged, high-bandwidth radio channel. The drone operator receives a picture in real time in Full HD format. In the city, "Reset" provides transmission over a distance of 400 m. In the forest, this figure rises to 1 km, "the material says.

It is noted that the signal of the system can not be silenced by means of EW or hacked. A high level of security is achieved "thanks to a special mode of information transmission (the signal is encrypted using a frequency range change algorithm) and a change in the antenna pattern."

Creating a miniature secure channel for UAVs is a real engineering breakthrough. Now more and more small UAVs are being used in the troops. Cheapness makes it possible to use them in the lower tactical level, at the level of a platoon and company. But putting secure encryption on them was always a problem,
Anton Lavrov, an independent military expert, told the newspaper.

According to him, 30-gram communication device, which has a microprocessor that performs encryption, is a serious scientific achievement.

A secure information channel is the main difference between a military drone and a civilian. Even the smallest army drones must have a reliable connection, then it will not be able to overhear or intercept the enemy. This will allow the device to operate in the conditions of electronic countermeasures,
added an expert.

    Indeed, a major achievement. Good news.

    Still a civilized version, for example, for car alarms with the OS.

        Most likely he will say that Russia stole the very idea from them. wink

          Yeah, they have enough demagogy

        Congratulations. Regarding "thanks to a special mode of transmitting information (the signal is encrypted using the algorithm for changing the frequency range)" I believe. And they only believe, but have always maintained that it is impossible to intercept such a signal, and it is unprofitable to drown out. Regarding the "change in the antenna pattern," I doubt very much that this was implemented in a mini drone.

          Why
          A small headlight should weigh a little.

            Professor, it is easier to create a zero reception in the DN in the azimuth of interference than a narrow beam of the DN. Enough and a pair of omnidirectional antennas, phase-controlled. There is no talk of any AFAR; a pair of cells spaced a dozen centimeters is enough.

            There is no place there. Here are the bourgeois

              Again twenty-five.
              A high level of security is achieved thanks to .... a change in the antenna pattern.

              The interference situation is analyzed, the azimuth of the interference is determined by the “zero” diagram (TWO spaced undirected dipoles and quasi-rotation due to phase shifters are enough). Zero interference reception - it is eliminated. What for the HEADLIGHT from the whole heap? And the weight of this garbage will be in the range of 2 GHz no more than 10 grams.
              And here are the Chinese. And this is everyday life.

    the signal of the system cannot be suppressed by electronic warfare equipment or hacked

    (the signal is encrypted using the algorithm for changing the frequency range) and changing the antenna pattern "

    Something really interesting, but about the change in the radiation pattern - this is already too much! They would have written that the encryption algorithm is a combined use of FM and FM. hi
    By changing the chart you will not achieve anything.
    As for electronic warfare, everything can be drowned out, especially such a broadband signal as FHD (no one has yet to refute Kotelnikov’s theorem) bully

      Tell it to developers and manufacturers of radio systems with adaptive antennas))).
      Regarding EW - you can drown out

      It is possible, the question is only the quality and quantity of electronic warfare equipment required for this.)))

        That's just adaptive antennas - this is to increase noise immunity (increasing the signal-to-noise ratio - resistance to electronic warfare), has nothing to do with coding (cryptography) algorithms! hi

          And the article says not only about cryptography.

    "... In the forest, this figure rises to 1 km"
    foliage, or rather moisture in it, still absorbs microwave well and the signal level drops
    In principle, what is described can be done by any mobile phone, and encryption including
