Reconnaissance and strike drone "Altius-U" received satellite communications

The Russian drone "Altius" became the first Russian drone equipped with a satellite communications terminal. This was announced by the chief designer of the Altius project, Ilya Matveev.


Answering the questions of the journalist on the air of the Russia-24 TV channel, Matveev explained that the Altius UAV was the first of the Russian drones to receive a satellite communication terminal developed in Russia, the receiver is placed under the head fairing of the drone.

This onboard satellite communications terminal was developed in Russia, including for use as part of our aircraft. Our drone is the first to be equipped with this kind of radio communication capabilities.
- he said.

Earlier it was reported that thanks to the installed equipment, the drone can be controlled via satellite, which makes the range of its use almost unlimited.

Altius-U is a drone created as a result of the development and testing of a number of prototypes within the Altair project. The newest unmanned complex is capable of performing the entire range of reconnaissance missions, as well as using aviation means of destruction.

The Altius UAV has a wingspan of 28,5 m, a length of 11,6 m, and a 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 stay in the air for up to 48 hours. The installed equipment allows reconnaissance at a great distance.

In February of this year, it became known that the Ministry of Defense had ordered a pilot batch of Altius reconnaissance and strike drones. Delivery times and the number of drones in the batch were not reported.

        And now some are "laughing". However, after the "last Karabakh", the neighing has subsided a little. But Orion received satellite communications only now, when Global Hawks have been using it for more than 15 years. Given the speed of technological progress in recent times, this is simply a colossal lag.

I think it's more serious than a soda truck. From our territory he can view Poland right up to the border with Germany. I think it's worth it.

Donbass should be looked at 400 km, the Turkish-Syrian border should be watched and many more places for a long time and in real time, but we find ourselves only on the first UAV satellite channel, and before that we did not watch anything further than 150 km in real time, yes and is not looking now ...

        There is no, but the sea border of the Russian Federation can easily - with a range of 10 km, the combat radius is up to 000 km. We take Kamchatka, Sakhalin and circle a radius of 5 km from them along the ocean. This is now roughly the border into which the AUG is better not to meddle if they want to live))))

          To destroy, you need to use a weapon, and this unmasks. No one bothers to use them in pairs or triplets, for greater combat stability. Well, the very fact of destruction can say a lot about the intentions of the enemy and lead to an adequate response, right up to the start of hostilities.

      They did not do it, not because they could not. The opinion of the management decides a lot, but they considered it unnecessary. some didn’t believe in the possibilities, etc. At VO, there is also no unequivocal opinion: who scolds the UAV, who considers it "a universal remedy for all diseases."

        And so, with this UAV, "Altius" I mean, interesting "stories" happened in the past, like:
        This event is all the more remarkable because not so long ago, in 2018, the fate of the project was in question, and its chief designer, Alexander Gomzin, even temporarily ended up behind bars on charges of embezzlement and misuse of funds allocated for the Altair project (This is how Altius was called then).
        ... allegedly called the inability of the OKB them. Simonov to complete the Altair project. It seems like UZGA, which by that time had experience in screwdriver assembly of the Israeli Searcher Mk2 drones produced under license from us, should have done the job much better. And, as we see, it did it. True, having previously lured the leading employees of the OKB im. Simonov, who worked on the Altair project ...

            Awesome efficiency and inconspicuousness, and at the same time a large amount of photographic materials or television images of areas - no more is needed for operational reconnaissance. Having 12 drones in a squadron, they can be launched every half hour and get everything that is needed in the offensive or defensive zone of an entire army - and even now these are excellent results for such equipment in combat conditions.

          And now, if we compare the characteristics of this UAV, with its gloomy opponent from across the Ocean (RQ-4 "GlobalHawk"), then interesting thoughts arise, even without the letter - "U" !!! winked
          - at first glance: the flight range of the "Altius" reaches 10 kilometers, and it can stay in the air for up to 000 (!) hours at one refueling, which even surpasses the performance of the eminent American. The payload is comparable to it - up to 48 kilograms. The wingspan is 1000 meters versus 28,5 meters for the RQ-35, which is also quite comparable;
          - and then, significant differences begin, and, unfortunately, they are not in favor of the Russian project. "Altius" is inferior to the American gloomy product, in a number of critical indicators, and looks faded against its background. Judge for yourself - the range is 10 km. Versus 000 km. (for some modifications, even 22 km.). The cruising speed is 780-25 km / h, against 000-180 km / h for the American. Service ceiling 250 meters versus 570 meters for RQ-600;
          - the American "analogue" is equipped with an excellent turbofan engine "AllisonRolls-Royce" AE3007H, capable of stably operating at an altitude of 23 thousand meters and providing a thrust of about 31,4 kN, or about three and a half tons. Russian designers had to be content with RED A03 / V12 piston engines, developed and produced by the German company RED Aircraft GmbH. Taking into account the fact that piston aircraft engines were not produced in Russia at the time of the launch of the project, and the production of the German A03 in various modifications was planned to be localized in Russia, this solution can be called, although not optimal, but acceptable. Nevertheless, two piston diesel engines could not provide the "Altius" with either a significant cruising speed, or, all the more, similar flight altitudes in terms of parameters;

    The trouble is that the development is by and large concentrated in the units of firms in the country and most, if not all of the suppliers are state-owned (which is good when you need to issue a large circulation). But after creating the conditions and mechanisms for eliminating leaks of sectarian information, the private could present many interesting ideas and developments, and then, as in the whole world, we collect the designer that most meets the given conditions.

      Any private trader can generate ideas commensurate with their budget. Do you want to say that the possibilities of a private owner are wider than the state ones? One should also bear in mind the fact that in some of the enterprises working in this direction, the state has only a controlling stake. I don't think that private capital is much more creative than the state structure.

        I meant that private traders will have more ideas, given the proper number, because there will be more people with innovative ideas. At state-owned enterprises, even so, conservatism rules, although there is more money, but for something that will definitely work. Would it take Nii to reinvent the PC Spectrum from scratch when it does well on PC lamps? navryatli or quietly and nizenko so. Plus, it is easier for young people to sell themselves with their idea, in my opinion, to a private company (when there are a lot of them). Something like this.

      Wi-Fi works only in the line of sight, so don't mislead people. For example, to ensure communication between objects at a distance of 25 km, you need to raise the antenna to a height of approx. 35 m, provided that there are no high-rise buildings on the way, for 250 km you can calculate it yourself. Data transmission equipment has existed for a long time (bridges), but the implementation of projects to provide communication over such distances using Wi-Fi is very costly and not economically logical.

    I honestly don't see any Turkish military-industrial complex. Full license from us, Ukrainians, Koreans and Europeans. As soon as you start to fight with at least someone, ask for a good half of the military-industrial complex. Without export, not a single sample can be produced, except perhaps for hand weapons. Here the engine is German, there is a Korean diesel, a European cannon. Much ado about nothing) But the loot is sawed and parades go.

    Turkish propaganda tries to convince its own public that they are wholly produced in Turkey by "national and local" means and capabilities. However, in reality, these UAVs are not entirely local, as their production depends on irreplaceable and powerful components that are imported from abroad, such as engines, cameras, satellite communication systems, transmission and reception by GPS. The Bayraktar TB2 is equipped with a gasoline engine with a capacity of 100-horsepower "Rotax 912" from the well-known Austrian company Rotax (full name Bombardier-Rotax GmbH, which in turn is part of the Canadian company Bombardier) Recall that on October 23, the vice-president of the Canadian company - representative of the company Martin Langelier announced that suspends the export of engines to countries that use them for unknown purposes. He noted that the engines of the Austrian "Rotax" were developed and produced only for civilian purposes. According to him, the company recently received information that its production engines are used in military UAVs. The Bayraktar TB2 and other Baykar Makinası models mainly use a Canadian-made L-3 WESCAM CMX-15D camera, which includes a laser guidance system. The Bayraktar TB2 is equipped with MAM-L high-precision anti-tank missiles MAM-C air-to-surface class manufactured by the Turkish company Roketsan. The MAM-L is based on another Roketsan product, UMTAS. According to some reports, the OMTAS և UMTAS Roketsan missiles are the result of a joint production with the German company TDW. It is clear from other sources that a German company developed the warheads and licensed them to Turkey. Defenseturk confirmed that the warheads are manufactured by the German company TDW. TB2 satellite communication systems are also imported from abroad, in particular from the United States. "The American company Viasat, which supplies the systems, also announced that it is suspending supplies to Turkey after the Armenians of America held a peaceful demonstration in front of the company's office for two days."

    Ken Peterman, public relations manager for Viasat, who met with protesters in Armenia, said the company did not know for what purpose Turkey was using its technology and promised to contact the US Department of Defense and demand an explanation of how Turkey, a member After the publication of a number of photos of Bayraktar TB2, damaged in recent days by the air defense systems of the Artsakh Defense Army, it became clear that the American company GARMIN (location: Diamond Bar, California), one of the leading manufacturers in the field of navigation devices, is supplying navigation receivers for this The Bayraktar TB2 UAV uses the GARMIN GNC 255A model, which costs $ 4495. The gyroscope, LN-200 IMU, on the UAV control panel is manufactured by the American company Northrop Grumman, which has also become popular recently. This is especially important because this is the device on which the drone's flight control is based. laughing

    Ural Civil Aviation Plant, which, by the way, has good experience in creating UAVs and among the achievements can be considered the complete localization of such a drone as Forpost-R. Initially, it was a licensed copy of an Israeli drone, but later it was completely redesigned, and version P unofficially means Russian - all components are now exclusively our production and development, plus weapons and a more powerful engine were added to it. Roughly speaking, only the glider and the concept remained. And they could not help but pay attention to this - at the end of 2018 the plant received all the documentation, and already in 2019 the first fully functional prototype of this extremely complex machine was handed over to the military. That is, in less than a year, UZGA did a great job and brought the car to mind, which the previous developer could not cope with. Yes, they did not just bring it - in the course of the work, multiple modifications appeared. Now we know about such machines as Altius-U, Altius-M and Altius-RU. Together, they are sometimes referred to as the Altair UAV. laughing whistle further

    How did the Russian designers manage to bring the flight duration to 48 hours, while the RQ-4, which has larger fuel tanks, is only 36 hours? Paradox.
    At the beginning of October 2011, the Sokol Design Bureau won the competition of the Russian Ministry of Defense for the creation of a UAV with a take-off weight of up to 5 tons. The development of the Altair UAV began as part of the Altius-M research and development project (a contract for 1 billion rubles) of the Sokol Design Bureau (now the MP Simonov Design Bureau) together with the Transas company (now Kronstadt). Alexander Vladislavovich Gomzin became the chief designer.

    In 2011-2012, the V.M. Myasishchev EMZ began the development of the onboard control complex for UAVs "Altius", "Orion".

    On February 5, 2013, a model of the UAV was publicly shown during the visit of the Minister of Defense of Russia S.K.Shoigu to the KAPO named after S.P. Gorbunov.

    As of March 2014, the UAV prototype was being assembled in the slipway shop "KAPO-composites"; a little later, it is likely that UAV tests began.

    In 2015, KRET began testing the navigation system for the UAVs "Altius", "Walker", "Okhotnik" [1].

    On August 13, 2016, the first reliable information about the tests of the Altair UAV appeared; the device made its first flight in July 2016.

    The second stage of flight tests, stopped in December 2016, was continued in March 2017 [2].

    On May 19, 2017, the second prototype was spotted among other samples of aviation equipment at the Kazan aircraft plant during a visit by the Secretary of the Security Council of Russia Nikolai Patrushev and the plenipotentiary of the president in the Volga Federal District Mikhail Babich

    On April 22, 2018, Alexander Gomzin, General Director of the Design Bureau named after M.P.Simonov, was arrested and charged with theft of 900 million rubles allocated for the development of a drone

    On October 9, 2018, there was a message about the termination of the development of "Altair"

    On December 19, 2018, the Deputy Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation Alexei Krivoruchko stated that “reports of the termination of the development of Altair are unreliable”. But he confirmed that there were problems and there was a change of contractor. The first flights of the modified UAV Altair should take place during 2019, and already in 2020 the final version of the machine ON FULLY DOMESTIC components can be demonstrated laughing .

    Valery Pobezhimov, Director - Chief Designer of Enix Kazan JSC: Can Russia get any valuable information if it is allowed to the shot down drones? “No,” Pobezhimov is sure. “For us in the UAV, the most important thing is a used, mass-produced engine, and everything else is in our hands.” Frolov adheres to a similar point of view: “I think that in Syria and Libya we received all the information on Bayraktar. As for the Israelis, then yes, we better understand what is attached and where, but what is the value of this? " According to the expert, this information will not solve. According to Pobezhimov, such a statement of the question is fair. The Turks made a serious breakthrough in this area, reached the level of China, while doing almost everything themselves. “At the very beginning of their unmanned programs, they offered cooperation to Enix, and they were all interested, since they started from scratch, from unmanned targets, but we replied that we were not working with NATO countries,” he recalled. laughing Nevertheless, according to the expert, in the near future the Russian attack UAVs "Orion" and "Corsair" will go into series, and the Kazan "Altair" (the whole complex is called "Altius-RU") will sooner or later be brought to mind. Pobezhimov suggests realizing a fundamental thing: "There is a Turkish film on the Internet about unmanned programs in this country, and it repeatedly emphasizes that everything starts with children's hobbies, with aircraft modeling." laughing
