The new Forpost-R reconnaissance drone will begin to enter the Russian army next year. Currently, the UAV is being tested and is preparing for serial production. It is reported by the Ministry of Defense.

The Ministry of Defense showed the first flight of the updated UAV "Outpost-R"




As explained in the military department, the Forpost-R UAV is a completely new drone, from the old model, which is a clone of the Israeli drone IAI Searcher Mk II, only the outer lines remain. The device was created entirely from Russian materials, it is equipped with the Russian APD-85 engine. The new UAV is equipped with modern Russian radio-electronic equipment and communications. The ground control complex and software are also Russian and new.

Since 2020, under the contract between the Russian Ministry of Defense and the Ural Civil Plant aviation its serial delivery to the troops will begin. This is a completely updated modification of the well-established Forpost complex.

- said in a statement.

The Ministry of Defense noted that, compared with the previous version, it was possible to increase the radius of application drone, as well as increase the time spent by the UAV in the air. In addition, the complex is equipped with modern protection against electronic warfare.

      That's about the "stuffing" of Forpost-R.
      The system includes four-axis gyrostabilization with an accuracy of 10 arc seconds. The need for such indicators is dictated by the need for sustainable illumination of targets for military aviation and guided weapons.

      The system is capable of detecting a tank-type target at a distance of up to 18 km, and confidently recognizing it at a distance of 8 km.

      The mass of the optoelectronic system is 32 kg. The mass of the two-wave rangefinder-illuminator is 2,4 kg.

        What is improved on the UAV? Real-time data exchange radius? And on the route he flew for so long and wrote on the chip, which is removed after landing ... And he rumbles very much, did not notice?

        The system is capable of detecting a tank-type target at a distance of up to 18 km, and confidently recognizing it at a distance of 8 km.

        And you turned it down, my friend, it depends on many factors, but it is better to analyze the image using special programs on the computer ... And this requires work in the mode of information exchange in real time ... And the brains with the target designation systems "Coalition" and "Tornado "agreed?

        That's about the "stuffing" of Forpost-R ..

        Let's analyze a little:
        —- Four axes - these are three spatial, and most likely the fourth - along the yaw angle.
        —10 seconds is ~ 1.6x10-6. (At roll and pitch angles of not more than 180 degrees), this is, as a first approximation, one root mean square value (“rms”) of the error, with a probability of 68%, in an ellipsoid of volumetric 4-dimensional space. Or its long rms radius. FINE!!!
        —- However, at a distance of 18 km, it is no more than ~ 50 cm, and at a distance of 8 km it is no more than ~ 25 cm. And with a probability of 95%, this error is not more than 100cm and 50cm, respectively. It is necessary and sufficient to detect, recognize not only the tank, but also the type and flag AND DESTROY !! FINE!!!
        —- And this is without taking into account object recognition algorithms!

        If you are talking about the Outpost, then it is not ours, but Israeli, in Outpost-R the filling is ours and the engine, and the glider remains Searcher II, so in this case the Israeli UAV looks "like airplanes that schoolchildren in the USSR did in modeling lessons", in my opinion even if he looks like a stool, if only he fulfills his tasks and completely suits the military

            Let me just remind you that when the furniture maker decided to buy the Outpost, our industry supplied the army only with Tipchak complexes - with a radius of 40 km, a flight duration of 2 hours and a line (!) TV camera. Moreover, 6 such UAVs required 4 six-axle KAMAZ. belay

                      And work on the armature is underway. Not so smooth, but the tank is revolutionary so delays were understandable

      A necessary thing for guidance RCC and KR.
      UAV "Forpost" will be able to take under surveillance a significant part of the Black Sea. They are designed for reconnaissance and target designation for subsonic low-altitude anti-ship missiles Kh-35 and "Caliber", ship and coastal artillery and missile systems.

      The "Outpost" has everything you need to act as a gunner for cruise or anti-ship missiles. The dimensions and payload of the drone allow it to carry powerful optoelectronic equipment. With its help, "Forpost" can easily detect large targets - primarily surface ships of a potential enemy.

      Modern equipment allows the drone to work in the dark and in all weather conditions. "Outpost" has a solid fuel reserve and can operate within a radius of up to 250 km from the operator's location, reach speeds of over 200 km / h and stay aloft for up to 17 hours. The drone weighs over 450 kg. The maximum altitude of its flight is about 5 thousand meters.

      Translated into Russian, this means that:
      1) the command line of control has become almost completely insensitive to suppression
      2) the data line has become almost insensitive to information interception and slightly sensitive to suppression
      3) the accuracy of target designation for ammunition with a laser seeker is less than half a meter from a distance of 10 km
      4) the industry has mastered the small dviglo for UAVs, copied or created something else - it does not matter, the main thing is that it rumbles as it should and where it flies. Moreover, with its own engine management system, which suddenly turned out to be a separate non-trial sport
