Under Nizhny Tagil opened a unified UAV test center for the Ministry of Defense

The Unified Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Testing Center (UAV), designed to test absolutely all drones developed for the Russian Ministry of Defense, began work on the basis of the Nizhny Tagil Metal Testing Institute (NTIIM) near Nizhny Tagil. This was reported by TASS with reference to the Director General of the Institute Nikolai Smirnov.


As explained to the publication by Smirnov, a single center was put into operation and work is already underway on it. At present, the Forpost and Forpost-R drones are being tested by specialists of the Ural Civil Plant aviation.

The reconstruction work is completed, the Ural Civil Aviation Plant is the only one who works at this training ground

- he said.

The start of the construction of a unique complex at the Salka aerodrome near Nizhny Tagil was announced back in 2015. Then Nikolay Smirnov said that the complex, designed to test all types of drones, will be created by the end of 2020. According to the plans of the creators, all UAVs intended for the Ministry of Defense should be tested on the territory of the complex.

It should be noted that in addition to the newly created unified test center for drones, on the basis of the Nizhny Tagil Institute for Metal Testing (NTIIM) there is a testing ground of national importance for testing artillery weapons and ammunition of medium and large calibers, unguided rockets and MLRS. The artillery complex near Nizhny Tagil is the most equipped in the industry for the production of ammunition, its field measuring 1,5 by 50 km is the largest of these in the world.

      Me too)) We have a lot of things flying here, small helicopters - a dime a dozen. One dude regularly returns home by helicopter at 11 pm, even though you check the clock, he flies by in the east. It can be seen, UAVs will also appear soon.

      Not at all logical. Each business entity has the right to have its own test center. His own developer, his own customer. And this applies to excavators and motors and UAVs. Centralization is not buzzing.
      The Ministry of Defense is the customer.

        Testing center, it is an expensive pleasure. If everyone will have their own training ground, then: firstly, there will not be enough land; secondly, the resettlement of people from the security zone (especially if the use of means of destruction) is expensive; thirdly, measuring instruments are not small money. I can continue, if interested. But the creation of interdepartmental centers (polygons) will help to save a lot of money.

          Do not count other people's money. Expensive or not, their owner must decide, in this context, the developer.
          The habit of counting other people's money, the habit of centralization, led to the lack of an alternative for a rusted pipe layer. (SP2)

            If you only heard about money, I feel sorry for you. The problem is multifactorial. But money must be able to count. They are not taken from the air. And there are many problems that need to be solved, in addition to the testing ground in each garden. Remember China with an attempt to increase the production of metal. Give the country coal! Small but to ... stupidity. A lecture on ensuring the safety of testing in this case is superfluous.

    The fact that the ONE complex has appeared is GOOD !!! The most important thing: So that we have “drones” more powerful и more perfect!!!

    There is a military airfield "Salka", there is a research institute. There will be a ONE Test Center at the DESIGN STAGE. But the one is not the only one. IMHO.
