Izhevsk "Kupol" will create a turbojet engine for the "Adjutant" drones

22

Among the latest military developments of the Izhevsk Electromechanical Plant "Kupol", a special place is occupied by the universal target-training complex "Adjutant".


In short, the Adjutant target complex was created for training combat crews of air defense complexes and systems - from portable anti-aircraft missile systems and short-range air defense systems of the Tor type to long-range systems in the near zone.
The "Adjutant" complex is capable of creating an environment as close as possible to a combat one, and thus makes it possible to practice repelling attacks from missiles, aircraft, helicopters and unmanned aerial vehicles, including the "UAV swarm" that is relevant in the light of the latest military trends.
As it became known to our publication, the Izhevsk Electromechanical Plant Kupol (part of the Almaz-Antey VKO Concern) plans to launch its own production of turbojet engines for small UAVs. 

These plans were announced this year by the general director of the enterprise Fanil Ziyatdinov.

The topic of unmanned aerial vehicles is not new for the company: after all, several years ago, Kupol engineers developed and are currently deploying serial production of the Adjutant universal target training complex, which includes various types of UAVs used as targets.

In addition, it is planned to supply turbojet engines for unmanned vehicles not only to Russian territory, but also to the international market.

Note that today the "Adjutant" complex includes up to five different types of targets, as well as information visualization tools for commanders.

That is, in the "Adjutant" there are means of displaying information, which are an electronic screen of the commander, which is located at the command post at a distance of up to 10 km from the ground control post. The screen displays the entire target situation in the sky with the transmission of all telemetric information on the actions of targets in the air, speed and altitude of the vehicles.

As the leading developer and manufacturer of anti-aircraft missile systems of the Tor family, the Kupol plant has been actively diversifying its production in recent years - not only in the direction of civilian and dual-use products, but also in terms of expanding the range of defense products.

Izhevsk Electromechanical Plant Kupol is actively modernizing not only its products, but also its own production facilities. Along with the renewal of production assets, modern technological equipment is being introduced, high-precision and high-performance equipment is purchased and installed. The production potential of the enterprise is assessed as high, ”says the head of the military air defense, Lieutenant General Alexander Leonov.

    Yeees. The photo resembles a combine harvester at field work, but the enemy will not fly by! repeat
    Izhevsk "Kupol" will create a turbojet engine for drones «Adjutant»
    Uh-uh, how is it in Russian?
    Maybe so: ... engine for drone «Adjutant"?

      Read carefully. It is for the "Adjutant" drones. This is a complex, not a drone.
      ... are launching serial production of the Adjutant universal target training complex, which includes various types of UAVs used as targets.

        In fact: WHAT is the difference in fig HOW to write correctly? The main thing is different: new capacities are being created for the production of miniature turbojet engines for drones! Considering the situation in the domestic engine building - the news is VERY PLEASANT !!! If they also create a KTB (design and technology center) for the development of such and similar engines, then it will be just wonderful!
        And "stylistic mistakes in the text" - God bless them! We will survive this somehow !!! hi

          undoubtedly good news... Nobody denies this) Do you think that, out of joy, the author immediately forgot the rules of the Russian language? Good news must be presented beautifully and correctly)
          However, I think that it is not worth developing the topic further, it seems like everything has already been figured out. hi

            PS Literacy is a NECESSARY thing, but alas, it seems to be disappearing, which can be observed in the young generation of "USE victims" ..... But here's what is interesting: among my former classmates there were 5 "round honors" (a funny coincidence of five fives)! But it was difficult to study at our school - the school was considered prestigious and the requirements were wow! But the result: 5 candidates of sciences and 1 - doctor, 2 - well-known doctors in our city, 1 diplomat and 1 international journalist (both in Moscow) .... But among these people - only ONE was an excellent student at school !!! The rest 4 - request
            Well, HOW do you explain this? what

      And what: is it "bad manners" to write about plans and prospects? IN - still not news feed and Müller's famous phrase from 17 Moments of Spring:

      We, scouts, must express ourselves exclusively with nouns and verbs: "...He came, they met, she conveyed..."
      Well, then on the site "VO" - there is nothing to do at all!

    Of course, there are other advantages from the deployment of our own production of turbojet engines in Izhevsk - this is the absence of dependence on external suppliers and a guarantee of the quality of our own products.

    It seems that not only for targets, but also for attack UAVs.

      for which? Does Russia have small turbojet-powered strike UAVs?
      There are only two targets with a jet engine in the "Adjutant" complex - this one

      in fact, a small-sized rocket weighing up to 50 kg with a flight speed of up to 500 km / h.

      And this one:

      with a flight speed of up to 120 km / h.

        God will give a day - he will also give food! There will be engines - and UAVs for them will appear!
        Enzo Ferrari once said: "I don't sell cars! I sell - ENGINES! And I give the cars away for free, because this is the only place where these engines CAN BE SUPPLIED !!! "
        Quite an eccentric statement, but it has a very deep meaning!

          God forbid. Only, I will correct, a mini-UAV. These engines, which are going to be produced by "Kupol", are very low-powered, replacement for the currently standing Taiwanese ones. The Taiwanese motor, as they say, gives a thrust of 22 kgf, and the targets of the "Adjutant" complex do not exceed 50 kg in weight.

    interesting are the performance characteristics of drones and engines, otherwise if the engine is powerful enough, then it can be used, say, to create kamikaze drones

      if the engine is powerful enough

      Here in another trick. A turbojet engine is not cheap, to put it mildly. And the fact that he is miniature only complicates the situation. A drone for a target complex, that is should be inexpensive. It turns out something new for us in technology, well, I don’t know, maybe they print it on a 3d printer. laughing And this is already a step towards the actual mass production of UAVs for the airframe and electronics in the UAV compared the engine is not a problem, even for large drummers - ask the Sultan laughing

        Well, it is quite possible that there is a simplified one-time design, therefore the price is low, but without specific numbers and performance characteristics of the model, it is difficult to say something .. It is indicated that the weight of the model is up to 50 kilograms, but 50 kilos is the weight with fuel and there is no power reserve? those. is it possible to install oels and bch and how much will it cost ..

        A turbojet low-resource (disposable) engine is cheaper than a similar internal combustion engine, which also requires special fuel. 3D printing is not used in the production of loaded parts ANYWHERE, except for press releases, of course.

    This is the primary task! And I am glad that such transformations of industries that are important for the country are no longer isolated.

    ... allows you to practice repelling attacks from missiles, aircraft, helicopters and drones
    the most important parameter is maneuverability, the target must work successfully at 100g, since it is precisely such targets that will have to be shot down by air defense
