In Ukraine: Upgraded RQ-4 Global Hawk UAVs Will Get More Important Data During Exploration in Donbas

45

The United States decided to invest significantly in financial terms in the development of its unmanned aviation... In particular, it is indicated that it is planned to spend $ 4 billion only on the modernization of the RQ-4,5 Global Hawk UAV.


In particular, it is indicated that strategic unmanned reconnaissance aircraft will be equipped with new tracking systems, which should receive a "picture" in high resolution. This will allow monitoring objects from a high altitude in virtually any weather with maximum accuracy and detail of photos and videos.

At the same time, there is a problem with data transmission channels. The existing Global Hawk communication channels with the information receiving and processing center are said to have insufficient capacity to transmit ultra-high resolution data in a short time. This, as noted in the Pentagon, is unacceptable, which means that the equipment will also be modernized, allowing the transmission of information from a reconnaissance drone in real time.

It was noted that so far the standard capacity of the satellite channel is up to 50 Mbit / s. It is planned to at least double this indicator and at the same time increase the sensitivity of the equipment so that it allows monitoring from a distance of up to 200 km (while the coordinates of ground objects RQ-4 Global Hawk is capable of determining with a minimum error from a distance of up to 100-120 km).

News on the modernization of American strategic drones inspired the Ukrainian command. So, in Ukraine, it is stated that the upgraded RQ-4 Global Hawk "will allow you to get more important data during exploration in the Donbass." In other words, Ukraine continues to rely not on its own capabilities, but on American weapons of a different nature, including drones.

    And what does the RQ-4 Global Hawk and the Ukrainian command in Donbas have to do with it? Has the APU already saddled the Pentagon?

        As I said long ago, Ukraine's problem is not that. that someone wants to conquer it. The problem is that no one needs it now, thanks to the leadership of that very Ukraine since 1991. It would seem that being at least a transport artery between Russia, through it China - and Europe - cut coupons just for transit, not even gas, cargo? Ask any logistician of the 90s, how much cargo went through Odessa to the Russian Federation and how much through Leningrad? The Monterrey coffee, sick of all Yupi-Zuko coffee - where did they come from, for example? Cut your coupons and don't blow your mustache. No, they barked with the RF. then Poroshenko - with Trump. then Zelensky - already with Biden (the case was instituted). Nobody needs it in the end.
        So let's roar for the change - the former owner modernized these ... How is he? I don't remember, we only have oxen and carts, we have not seen this for a long time, orphans repeat

          I fundamentally disagree with the wording. You can only conquer someone else's, you need to return your own. Most of the current under-state called Ukraine is the historical lands of Russia, which, by coincidence of tragic circumstances, went to people who were not quite outstanding in their moral qualities. The fact that no one needs these people is true, I do not argue, but the lands for which our ancestors shed their blood cannot be scattered. It doesn't matter what they are called now. And in general, the very word "ukraine" is gradually becoming synonymous with such a thing as complete tryndets. I imagine a conversation in the near future (and in some places even now):
          Two friends meet, one asks, "how are you?"
          The second answers "And don't ask, complete Ukraine." laughing

          The fact is that colossal funds are required to bring the country into a divine form, and everyone wants to make money, and not invest in don’t understand what. So they finish off the country, pumping out the last. And then it will be a big dump for the EU, where they will take garbage and migrants for re-education ..................

      The priorities are not indicated correctly, it was the Pentagon who saddled the APU. And he sends his "Global Hawks" with the regularity of "diesel-electric trains", to fly around the Crimea and the contact line in Donbass
      That's what interested me

      They want to repeat the Karabakh scenario. There are magic javilins, Turkish UAVs are bought. Air defense in the DPR and LPR is not Jordanian, but Ukrainian. The only thing is that they are under our umbrella. Yes, and with the mountains Psaki let down, did not dig. They are very unhappy that we interfere with sovereignty USA over Ukraine.

    In Ukraine, "loudly declare" - what to eat lard. Swung with a bare bottom, already on the RQ-4! "Peremoga" disastrously breaks down next year. There are no pennies of their own, but the EU told them openly that we are not an ATM for Ukraine. All hope remained on the IMF, from which they tearfully asked for $ 4,5 billion, for the budget layout for 2021, the IMF set 20 points of conditions. They did not fulfill them, and have already requested 1,5 billion, but this week they were completely refused. Their glad is in shock, the year is running out, and there is nothing to make up the budget from. But for the domestic consumer, they compose beautiful tales about the power of their weapons, and the purchase of advanced weapons abroad.

      Nothing will survive. We left, the Chinese have come, a niche is never empty. That's when they will learn what a Ukrainian and a Chinese brother are forever.

    Yes, the author probably does not know that the RQ-4 Global Hawk periodically conducts reconnaissance flights along the borders of the Russian Federation, including in the Donbass.
    The last flight took place 50 km from the borders of the Rostov, Voronezh and Belgorod regions as well as along the borders of the Crimea.
    Ukraine and the United States are constantly exchanging intelligence
    At the moment, Ukraine does not need drones of this class

      Colleague, for some reason you have a fundamentally incorrect idea of ​​the depth of interaction between the military departments of the United States and Ukraine.
      Be sure, if necessary, the Ukrainian Armed Forces will receive the necessary data package on the DPR and LPR forces.
      After all, they fly, including for this ...

      And counting on some kind of "sudden fall" of the UAV in the case when it conducts reconnaissance activities hundreds of kilometers from the front line is generally stupid yes
