The newest underwater drone "Sarma" will be shown at the international exhibition in Yekaterinburg

58

CDB "Lazurit" has developed the newest marine UAV "Sarma", the layout of which will be demonstrated for the first time at the international industrial exhibition INNOPROM-2021 in Yekaterinburg. This was reported by the press service of the Almaz-Antey concern.


The autonomous underwater unmanned vehicle "Sarma" is designed to perform various works under water. According to the developers, it is equipped with high-precision navigation equipment, a communication system, and a wide range of tools. The drone can be under water for a long time, thanks to its modular design, it is able to transport cargo, search and solve numerous other tasks.

For the first time, the development of the Sarma marine drone became known in 2018. The development was carried out by the Lazurit Central Design Bureau and the Advanced Research Fund (FPI). It was stated that the developers plan to create three demonstrators that will be tested in various conditions, ranging from the Black Sea to the Barents Sea. The main tests of the device are scheduled for 2022-2023 on the Northern Sea Route, the device will have to pass under the ice along the entire Northern Sea Route. The declared distance of the planned crossing is 10 thousand km.

Note that the drone is based on a non-nuclear power plant. As Viktor Litvinenko, head of the FPI project group, said in 2018:

(...) Such devices will ensure the safety of navigation along the Northern Sea Route and solve other tasks, including seismic exploration. This is a very difficult project. You need to walk such a huge distance without errors, and without surfacing, without communication with space satellites or the outside world, relying on your own navigation


What stage of development is currently not reported to us.

        No matter what. Theoretically, what thread is the battery recharging from certain physical sources. Or any source of energy based on radioisotopes.
        And 10000 km in this case is just a matter of time, which the developers bashfully did not mention.

            Perhaps they did not deal with VNEU because some new technology appeared on the horizon. Still, 10000 km under water without surfacing, on its own, without a nuclear power plant, it smelled of something new and very interesting

                Well, I disagree, if, as always, with fanfare they announced "numbwmireanalogues", and then quietly closed the office, then yes. And so it seems there is a demonstrator, ready for testing. And then we'll see.

              You can put anything you want, the question is in the range, after all, 10 is the total length, they will most likely be recharged .. and how much payload they can take on board and the most important thing is the price .. in fact, on topvar, the toughest dispute is on the fight with enemy submarines in the first place, if such devices can be done relatively a lot, then they will be able to fight enemy submarines in various ways - from recording their portraits, issuing control commands for anti-submarine aviation, and working in the kamikaze style.

          The energy consumption for various versions of water "lises" with separation into hydrogen and oxygen is 40% higher than the energy obtained from the subsequent oxidation of hydrogen in an environment of pure oxygen.

    In addition to the Wave Propeller (Wave Glider) + solar batteries (on a float) - now there are no options for a non-nuclear power plant in the characteristics specified in the article.
    There the maximum speed in solar time is 2 knots.
    Accordingly, movement under the ice of the NSR is unrealistic!
    Only on the high seas and preferably in sunny weather.
    With a real speed of 1 knot, it will go these 10 tkm - under 300 days ...

    VNEU? Anril ...
    Isotope batteries on the "newest versions" of nickel-63? They are too undeveloped and too weak ...

      Less weight and dimensions of the drone means much less internal volume for equipment, less propulsion power, energy source / battery capacity ...
      Newfangled scooter batteries weighing 3-4 kg can have 0,5 kWh capacity, but only travel 5-10 km.
      Car batteries have a weight of 320 kg, a capacity of 85 kWh, and a travel distance of 550 km.
      The ratios are practically similar in principle - 1kg battery - 2-2,5 km
      But in fact, the "operation" of a car and a scooter is two colossal differences.
