The Ministry of Defense has ordered a pilot batch of Altius-U strike-reconnaissance drones

The Ministry of Defense has signed a contract for the supply of a pilot batch of Altius reconnaissance and strike drones. This is stated in the materials of the final board of the Ministry of Industry and Trade of Tatarstan.


As follows from the materials, after the implementation and defense of the technical project for the development of the drone, a contract was signed for the manufacture and supply of the Altius pilot batch. The production of drones is included in the company's plans for 2021, the delivery time and the number of UAVs in the batch have not been disclosed.

As part of the implementation of the state contract for the ROC "Altius-RU" for the development of UAVs by a separate subdivision No. 2 of JSC "Ural Plant of Civil aviation"(UZGA) in Kazan, the protection and closure of the" Technical design "stage has been successfully completed.

- the document says.

In mid-January 2020, it was reported that UZGA had completed tests of an experimental prototype of a promising unmanned aerial vehicle "Altius-U". The first flight of the unmanned vehicle in the Altius-U version took place in August 2019.

"Altius-U" is the final appearance of the drone, created as a result of the development and testing of a number of prototypes within the framework of the "Altair" project. The newest unmanned complex is capable of performing the entire range of reconnaissance missions, as well as using aircraft weapons. In February 2020, it was reported that a drone of high-precision gliding bombs 9-А-7759 "Thunder" was received for service.

UAV Altius has a wingspan of 28,5 m, a length of 11,6 m, and take-off weight of 6 tons. The flight altitude is 12 thousand meters, the flight range is up to 10 thousand km. In this case, the UAV can be in the air for up to 48 hours. The installed equipment allows reconnaissance at a great distance. The drone can also be controlled via satellite, which makes its range almost unlimited.

      It seems like "Hunter" is also ready.
      I remember the Yankees wrote about him as a very formidable weapon.

      Perhaps the largest of all, both for the ceiling in terms of range and duration of stay in the air. And about the best - it is not yet clear. TTX correspond and slightly exceed the American "Reaper *

      As far as can be judged from the domestic media, all projects of UAVs manufactured in Russia are being "tested" in Syria and the harsh climatic conditions of Russia.
      Therefore, MO orders only those products that have passed the examinations well and excellent.
      We are waiting for the replenishment of new products.

      But there is no need to be afraid! If it comes to the "setting batch" - then "the process - started"! Another - HOW MUCH will they be built? But this is no longer for me! Moreover, the progress in the field of UAVs "spanks forward with leaps and bounds"! I am absolutely convinced that even more advanced machines are already being developed somewhere "in the depths of the design bureau"!

        This is already a serial product. At this stage, the ability of production is determined, but the product itself is already serial. There will be few people at the assembly, they will recruit more. There will not be enough machines and equipment, they will buy in addition.

    Such news appears more and more often, which is very encouraging! Judging by the characteristics, it is quite a serious car. Another would have been reported in more detail about the weapons, or about the payload. good

    It seems that the problem of unmanned aircraft is being gradually solved in a positive way. It is gratifying! And knowing our character (harnessing ... driving ...), I hope we will have the best unmanned aircraft in the world!
    It would be interesting to get acquainted with the current comprehensive material on this topic here. Not only for those products that are heard (hunter, altius, outpost, orion, etc.), but also less famous. How these projects are progressing, what is known from open sources, what various experts write, and so on.

        AWACS is not AWACS, but as a repeater to provide communication in the VHF range and broadband access to data transmission for ground constellation or surface constellation - it is. The presence of a satellite channel, the payload is normal, the speed is excellent for this, the ceiling and loitering time are excellent. So we look forward to it.

        The service life of diesel engines is generally good, CIAM is developing a line of engines for small aircraft. And something happens. Yes, and somewhere I heard that there is such a miracle as refueling in the air. Oh yes. On all long-range aircraft and fighters they are installed. We, again, refueling aircraft for carrier-based aircraft. So the development of the element base for avionics should be more worried. So that the avionics are good, the connection is quicker.
        And so yes. Laughter prolongs life.

          There is no such system on the Altius. So how does satellite control remove range restrictions?
          The drone can also be controlled via satellite, which makes its range of use almost unlimited.

          Or is this just another speculation of "experts"?

      As always, you need to chew everything, and even put it in your mouth.
      UAVs with such a flight range (10 km) are limited in the range of communication with the operator. When controlled via satellite, Altius will not have such a communication range limitation.

    However, you are right, but a reasonable person tends to change his views under the influence of new circumstances and new information. This is, in fact, the basis of evolution and progress.
    Initially, many "did not accept" UAVs, considered them unnecessary and expensive toys ... Well, it is human to make mistakes ... Later, realizing a mistake, they admitted it and diligently correct it. This is good, this is correct and it pleases!
