Large and European. In Berlin presented the UAV MALE RPAS

49
At the international aerospace exhibition 2018 ILA Berlin Air Show in Berlin, a presentation of the long-range advanced European Medium-Altitude Long-Endurance Remotely Piloted Aircraft (MALE) promising drone drone, was announced. bmpd.




It is reported that the UAV is created by agreement from 2015, the companies Airbus, Leonardo and Dassault Aviation. The program is funded by the governments of Germany, France, Italy and Spain. The exhibition presented a full-size model of the device.



Currently, the development is at the design stage. An agreement on the definition of a UAV design scheme was concluded in the middle of last year.

“The presented model demonstrates a large-sized UAV with an all-composite design, equipped with two turboprop engines with pushing propellers (a specific type of engine has not yet been selected). Communication with the ground control station should be provided by a satellite communications system, ”the message says.



A feature of the control system of the apparatus should be its “compliance with the norms of flights in the civilian-controlled airspace of Europe”, for which appropriate certification procedures will be implemented.

          Yes, do not appear! Nothing just appears! And the fighters of the next and subsequent generations will also be fighters on the foundation of the physical processes of the 19th century, which means there will be no speed, no acceleration, no maneuverability. Therefore, first physics and mathematics, and only then technology. With drones, the same gimmick. they fly further because more fuel is charged in the tanks, and not because the technology of flight support is better.

Regarding authorities, I recognize people with the ability to reasonably substantiate their thoughts and ideas, and not succumb only to their own illusions. After all, why am I not discovering an extremely important, for the present, method of analyzing big data and, in particular, the properties of numbers that no one sees as obvious. You simply do not believe in such an opportunity, but for me it is an opportunity to reveal a person’s ability. A person is able to develop only through Faith in a more organized mind.

      Why they did this on this, and even on the pylons, and even two - it’s not clear at all. In general, this is a convenient layout solution, if like Ripper. The nose of the fuselage becomes free to accommodate various equipment, radars, etc. And at these speeds, the difference is especially pulling or pushing screw.

      There is no advantage in aerodynamics. Here the layout is more important. Need a free nose and top, you need to survive to the maximum when flopping on the belly. And with such a look as in the photo, in addition, the wing is clean without nacelles - plus technological effectiveness and load-bearing properties (although there is a minus - the motors on the wing unload it, strength is needed less), Surprised - 6-blade screws. It can be seen, for reasons of reducing the diameter (and so that the soil does not cling to the belly) went for it. In general, it will be great to review all the canons in terms of strength and aerodynamics. Too great they began to differ from aircraft in terms of their capabilities with drop dead unpretentiousness and cheapness.

        If the engines on the same tail pylons are rotated 180 degrees (pulling screws), the nose and wings will also remain free.

        The dynamic flows of the elastic medium, the air, create lift on the wing and the maneuverability of the aircraft, and therefore create all the conditions for an effective flight.

            But if you agree with me, then you need to understand that the rear screw arrangement is not a rational solution from the point of view of energy. Another thing is in our device, in which vector-suction processes allow the device to be located at the rear, and with a higher potential for mass rejection, placed at the front. Talk only about this. Screws and propellers are not efficient converters of energy flow

              And what kind of rationality are we talking about? This scheme allows you to stay in the air for up to 24 hours ... Why more? Need for weeks? I think no. The cost of a flight hour from this does not change much ...

      You argue in the plane. There are other priorities. And the golden mean has shifted. A simple example, who would have thought that the plane should be designed from the condition of sticking into the Ostankino tower? Given the dimensions and mass of the payload. Height and duration. They said, clear the nose and the top, the equipment needs them. They said the maximum cost and labor costs of the service. Yes, in addition, something else exotic. Type drag a crowd of 10 snouts from the truck for 300 meters and assemble in 15 minutes. And all do not care about 2% increase from the interference of the T-plumage, if only it would not break on the head of the onlooker, and the cracked wing could be quickly replaced without touching the engines (and vice versa). Excellent modular layout, thought out from the manufacturability of production and operation.

    From the point of view of a massive attack, these slow-moving drones, even in local conflicts, are useless. EW will shut them up and they will spin on autonomy like a drone in the Interstellar movie. Therefore, before dumping loot in a fashionable idea, you need to sensibly evaluate the effectiveness of the final idea. It seems, therefore, in the Russian Federation that they do not jerk about similar drones but rely on super sound.
