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.
