UAV "Forpost" equip all-seeing radar

19
Russian reconnaissance drones will equip with miniature high-precision radars that will significantly increase their capabilities, according to News.




Currently, the Ministry of Defense is developing tactical and technical requirements for a radar station. The decision to develop a radar for the "Outpost" was taken on the basis of its combat use in Syria.

According to the newspaper, “the radar created for the drone will be in many ways similar to the radar installed on“ large ”airplanes, however, taking into account the weight and dimensions of the drone, the novelty will be smaller.”

The radar will be mounted in a small container that can be installed under the wing or fuselage of the UAV.

"Outpost" is produced by the Ural Civil Plant aviation. “One unmanned complex includes a ground control station and three UAVs, each costing about $ 6 million. A takeoff mass of 454 kg can carry up to 100 kg of payload. It is capable of observing without landing for 17,5 hours at altitudes of up to 5,7 km and at a range of up to 250 km from the airfield, ”the material says.



Equipping an unmanned vehicle with a radar station in addition to the traditionally used optoelectronic surveillance equipment will improve the detection and identification of targets. Similar practices exist in other countries. For example, in the Italian Falco devices, which are located approximately in the same weight niche as the Outpost. The Israeli prototype of the Russian UAV - Searcher drone ("Finder") - also has a version with airborne radar,
Denis Fedutinov, editor-in-chief of the Unmanned Aviation portal, told the newspaper.

As Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said earlier, Russian UAVs in Syria made 16 thousand flights. Their total flight time was 96 thousand hours.

      Without your development, forty years ago, and this was not. Unfortunately.

        And what difference does he have, a workhorse, it modernizes, so it fulfills its function! And then who knows how many flyers he saved with his work, this is, in my opinion, the best criterion!

          I agree with you. It’s just a shame that this area in aviation was in the pen.

        A drone is a glider, engine and control system. There is nothing super complicated that we did not have before.
        The purchase of other people's drones for study was needed only in order to reduce the time and cost of developing their own. So what about "and this was not" You got excited.

          90% of the complexity of creating a UAV is electronics and software, and it was none of them, and it was bought for their sake ...

        This is our development. They bought a drones manufacturing company for a million dollars from a Russian kid from a repatriate near quish sargel. and blackmail took place. How do you drive quis Sargel drones in the sky - these are ideas and best practices from this lad stole honestly by local residents of Israel. The kid dumped into Canada from this madhouse.

      about $ 6 million. The device with a take-off mass of 454 kg

      It turns out a kilogram of UAV 320 times more expensive than gold! What is it about him? It is necessary to conduct an audit.

    I’m looking at this Outpost and one thought in my head is spinning, was it being cut with an ax?

    How much more time can the Israeli clones use? And not "first freshness"? And the “filling” collected by the “screwdriver” in Simbirsk (Ulyanovsk) still transfers the “picture” to Haifa.

    Indeed, the second oldest profession is a journalist:
    Currently, "Outposts" are equipped with powerful optoelectronic stations, which are not always effective in fog or sandstorm conditions, the publication notes.

    In March last year, the Izvestia newspaper reported that Russia would create a new tactical drone based on the Searcher MkII UAVs previously purchased from the Israeli company Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI), which were called Forpost in Russia. The novelty, “Outpost-M,” manufactured by the Ural Civil Aviation Plant (UZGA), should be transferred to the Russian Ministry of Defense in 2019.
    In September 2015, it became known that the Russian Ministry of Defense purchased 10 more Outpost unmanned aerial vehicles. The amount of the transaction concluded the year before last, according to the newspaper Vedomosti, amounted to approximately 300 million dollars.

    The contract for the assembly of unmanned systems was signed in 2010 by the Russian corporation Oboronprom and the Israeli company IAI. Its cost amounted to 400 million dollars. The UZGA plant, partially owned by Oboronprom, was chosen as the production site.

    The "unmanned deal" with Israel caused an mixed reaction in Russia. This decision has been repeatedly criticized by a number of Russian politicians and aviation experts. Israel has refused a deal to supply Russia with more modern, including strike UAVs.
    Against this background, Israel rejects Russia's proposals for the joint production of modern strike UAVs.
    Is logical. That is, it is an outdated Israeli drone. Stunned

      Well yes! Moreover, the assembly models (under the flag of the Russian Federation) accurately supply all the navigation information to Ofek-10, Israel’s radio-electronic intelligence satellite. And our "manufacturers" can not do anything about it ... So that Outposts are the "eyes and ears" of AMAN and Mossad ...
