Israeli company APG introduced a new version of the drone Peres


The first drone Peres was introduced in September last year. A prototype weighing 20 kg was developed as a demonstrator of VTOL technology - the possibility of vertical takeoff and landing. Peres 2 weighs 42 kg and is capable of carrying a payload of 3,3 kg with a flight radius of 150 km.

After the successful completion of the tests, APG announced the transition to the development of Peres 3 and Peres 4 - these devices will weigh up to 200 kg and can be airborne for up to 12 hours. Thanks to the rotary engines drones Peres family will be able to go into a high-speed horizontal flight mode. In this case, takeoff and landing will be carried out in a vertical mode, which will allow the use of drones in a limited space, as well as on ships.

    The future belongs to VTOL, anyway.
    How best to take off and land without a run is another question.

        You need to break your head, because both a catapult and a parachute are bad decisions.
        We need intermediate takeoffs and landings.
        Take-offs anywhere (and no catapults negative ) and fast and
        precision landings (parachute is not suitable negative )

      The future belongs to a drone on a tank, an armored personnel carrier, an anti-aircraft gun. On cable and without.

    A similar Peres with appropriate optics can be a good addition for watchdogs and fish inspections. And even more in demand in counterguerrilla operations.
    True, the sofa whispers maliciously to me: who will prevent the same terrorists from using it to spy on troops?

    With such propulsion devices during vertical take-off, you will not take much load.
    Apparently a pure scout observer will be.

    hi During takeoff and landing, all four engines are used, for horizontal flight only two are needed.
    According to APG experts, the new project will meet the needs of the Navy, which intend to purchase UAVs for use from ships. The maximum take-off mass of the UAV is 220 kg, the maximum length and wingspan is 4 m. The flight duration is 12 hours, and the maximum payload is 20 kg.
