Russian scientists patented a device for "catching" drones

40

Russian experts have developed a system that can literally "catch" drones. We are talking about a device patented by scientists from RFNC-VNIITF (Russian Federal Nuclear Center - All-Russian Research Institute of Technical Physics) from the Chelyabinsk Region.


The device itself is, in fact, a rocket that, during the flight, throws out a special super-strong network, which, as a result, is capable of capturing unmanned aerial vehicles.

The information on the Rospatent website indicates that the invention was patented by Russian scientists just a few days ago.

The missile has a special guidance unit, with the help of which it flies into the part of the airspace where the presence of the UAV is recorded. The device is equipped with an additional direction finding unit. The network is located in a container. To ensure the capture of the drone, special weights are placed at the corner points of the network, which contributes to the deployment of the network.

The use of a rocket makes it possible to provide a speed advantage even over a drone that moves fast enough and maneuvers at the same time. The net is able to capture the drone due to the high kinetic energy of the cargo, which is acquired at the initial moment when the trap net is “fired” from the container.

This method of "catching" drones, apparently, can be quite effective against UAVs that do not differ in large mass.

It is argued that the performance of such a device is currently confirmed by calculations. Now the tests of such a trap for the UAV are coming.

    It would be interesting to know how the network "covers" the UAV - from the top (falling parallel to the Earth's surface) or deployed in a vertical plane. And how is it stabilized in space to avoid its collapse?

      Kirdyk to drones ... different and all-how they caught fish in the eighties of the last century, all in a row ... but there was only one pollock ... ... they caught a herring, half of the pollock catch ... -were contracted for a flounder, and took all the bottom ones with hermit CRABS ..... They gave a fine to the office ....... And the New Zealanders were wildly happy with our blue whiting fishing, they raked it out with lemonema and grenadier ......

      You are told, the patent has been received, the mathematical calculations have been made. Compiled differential-integral equations of motion. laughing I suppose a couple of doctorates were defended and washed. It remains to find a ram that will pay "the inventors of the bicycle." In addition to the budget of the Russian Federation, there is no one to sell it. The United States has a dime a dozen of its "scientists" with ridiculous patents. And China even spits on serious patents.

        patent received

        The meaning of the invention:
        "Equipping each throwing barrel with a movable part installed in the specified barrel with the possibility of telescopic extension in the longitudinal direction when the load leaves the barrel provides, in comparison with the prototype, an increase in the length of the throwing barrel, which leads to an increase in the speed of departure of each load and, accordingly, to a reduction in time deploying a trap network to capture a high-speed UAV, increasing the efficiency of its capture.

          Gee-gee-gee ... I wonder how much money was written off for this design? Billion? Two? More? And who wrote this - the son of a member of the government? Granddaughter? Did the institute get at least one hundred thousand through which this "project" was drawn up? The guys don’t bother about big chunks of money at all. They do not even consider it necessary to draw up papers with any plausibility.

        The invention is a device in the form of a hollow cylinder filled with some kind of refrigerant. The device is directed at fresh dog excrement, a button is pressed, the refrigerant is sprayed and freezes all the "good". It can then be folded into a bag and disposed of.

        Perhaps there is something similar with a net for UAV fishing, but the environments are different. The density of water and the atmosphere are categorically different, and therefore the behavior of the network, its fall - will be different.

      Add kinetics and the cutter will work. It will be more reliable with a partial hit. And the network will fly more in the open state and the probability of hitting is higher than several drones in a swarm.

    Finally ! It came to missiles! 40mm (and more ...) missiles can become the main weapon of unmanned fighters! There are already in real life 40-mm missiles with a semi-active laser seeker with a range of up to 2 km ("Pike") ... it is really possible to make 40-mm missiles, for example, unguided missiles with fragmentation-beam (shrapnel) warheads with the "help" of ready-made fragmentation-beam (shrapnel) artillery shells in caliber 35,40 mm ... And proposals for missiles stuffed with nets did not appear "today" (I was even surprised how I managed to "patent" a well-known idea!)! There are also proposals for missiles that deploy their "death rays" like an umbrella or NOE ...

    HEALTHY OF COURSE, but a kind of working UAV with 4 grids has already been presented in the Russian Federation. (like 4, they wrote)

    So what is the essence of the patent then? In the Rocket? in the Grid? Nobody else can produce rockets with a grid?
    Or vice versa, we will not be able to untwist for bucks ???

      In this case, they simply staked out the idea so that later it would be possible either to sell the patent to a large manufacturer, or to organize the production of non-combat systems for various power structures, for example, the National Guard, the Ministry of Internal Affairs, the Federal Penitentiary Service, etc. And some citizens who have plots of land do not really like it when neighbors spy on them from drones, and will willingly purchase such a thing for their needs.
      In general, I think there is a potential for sale - that's why they decided to patent this idea, as I see it.
