17

The Russian Armed Forces will be armed with the Aurora. We are talking about a small-sized deep-sea drone, which is being prepared for state testing.


This is reported by the departmental publication "A red star" in one of its materials with reference to the head of the GU for research activities and technical support of advanced technologies of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, Major General Andrei Goncharov.

The Aurora deep-sea drone was developed by the research and production association of the same name. It is capable of submerging under water to a depth of 1 km. Moreover, it has a modular structure that allows it to be supplied with a variety of equipment. The provision of activities is carried out by means of a lithium-iron phosphate battery. Autonomous work under water - up to 6 hours.

The Aurora underwater drone has already been tested.

It is also reported that the Russian Armed Forces will soon receive a special complex "Valdai", capable of countering small unmanned aerial vehicles that are in flight in radio silence. Valdai was called an effective means of dealing with low-speed UAVs. State tests of this complex have been completed.

    Good news!
    It is designed for search and rescue operations, reconnaissance and terrain research, demining and delivery of small cargoes. At IMDS-2019, JSC Scientific Research Institute of Television presented information on the active underwater vision system "ASPV", which was shown in relation to the AUV of the NPO Aurora Concern. The system is designed for photographing and video filming of objects of observation in the ranges of operating depths of immersion up to 3 km and travel speeds of an autonomous unmanned underwater vehicle (up to 3 knots).

      There is a trend towards unmanned vehicles. "Terminators" - to life!

    They could simply call it "morning dawn" in Russian, otherwise Aurora has long been assassinated with a tank gun shot at the Winter Palace, with the Civil War. ..

      And I associate "Aurora" with the legendary cruiser, which fired from a tank gun at the Winter Palace, heralding a new country without bars and gentlemen, a country of workers and peasants. Good name, correct.

        What good is it that the pilot was named after the cruiser that heralded the start of the meat grinder that killed 10 million people?

      But the big barrel of honey contains a bit of non-honey - the filling of this device is not entirely domestic. For example, "eyes", CMOS matrices are Japanese, made by Sony.

        Good firm! In 1982 I had a cassette tape recorder. It never broke! The cassettes were no longer produced.

        Minus not minus, you will still get, as they say, a Russian case with imported filling. Are there any clear objections?

        LED matrices are also probably from China, and "brains" with power controllers from over the hill ...!?
