New small-sized reconnaissance drones "Binoculars" began to arrive in the zone of the special operation

The photo is illustrative



The Russian military involved in a special operation in Ukraine began to receive new reconnaissance drones. According to the "Shooting from the air" company, mass production of drones will be launched in the near future.

The Russian company Shooting from the Air sent a batch of small-sized reconnaissance drones called Binoculars to the NVO zone. Despite its small size, the UAV is capable of reconnaissance from a height of up to 1 meters and stay in the air for up to 40 minutes. It is equipped with a thermal imager that allows you to open enemy positions at any time of the day, and also has a device for dropping grenades. The company emphasized that the drone costs two to three times cheaper than the Chinese drone DJI Mavic, which is actively used during the NWO as reconnaissance.

It is these "Binoculars" that have already begun to be delivered. Both night and day - there are already contracts. (...) There are few of our developments now, but gradually there are more and more

- leads TASS the words of a company representative.

The Binocular reconnaissance drone is reportedly silent and can conduct reconnaissance in the conditions of the use of electronic warfare systems, as well as anti-drone guns. The drone is equipped with special software that allows you to analyze targets. Targets are analyzed using a neural network that highlights the detected equipment and people.

(...) the neural network is able to determine whether the same Himars is on alert or just moving

- stated in the company.

    The drone is equipped with special software that allows you to analyze targets.

    The analysis is carried out on the ground ... because it requires a lot of energy ... a small drone cannot afford this. smile
    The task of the drone is to transmit the image and coordinates of the object as quickly as possible and nothing more.

      Less than a year later, it dawned on the generals: a thousand cheap drones with a video camera are better than one super-fancy "best in the world"

        It's not the generals, but the entrepreneurs who want to cut down money and bring benefits to Russia. Such a thing is for the good, if only the "generals" do not put a spoke in the wheels.

      Software is installed on the drone to detect objects caught in the camera
      The operator is already highlighted ... this is a person ... this is a pillbox ... this is possibly a technique ... and here, something was moving

      Even 15 years ago, cameras learned to identify faces in the frame, and take a picture themselves at the moment when the eyes are open on the faces and everyone is smiling. Roughly the same with other objects in the frame. A neural network is the so-called AI (Artificial Intelligence) is difficult to train, i.e. to teach you how to find the objects you need in the picture, and when the training has already passed, then there are no big resources needed. a cheap processor 15 years ago, as I wrote to you above, can easily cope with this.

        topol_777 Detecting a camouflaged target from a kilometer, from any angle, is radically different from recognizing a smiling face, right into the lens, taking up half a frame and well lit by the sun. And all extraneous (false targets) were kicked out of the frame. Don't compare at all. And do not do it on board, there is energy to spare. Even with a simple camera, there is a video stream of 1 Mb / s. Gigabytes run up in an hour 3. Grind such necessary dozens of cores and acc. kilowatt power.

          And what about the thermal imager? The picture is digital, it doesn’t matter to it from 1 km, or 10 m you shoot, it highlights spots of the desired temperature parameter and can select them as a target, you only need software that will already translate this picture into a target for everything accurate and not very. mavic 3t thermal for 5000 euros has a thermal imager and a powerful magnification, you can see a gopher point from km. This is the coolest of the cutting edge drones. Is it possible that they made an analogue in Russia for 1700 euros? So only the 3/4 camera is probably on Mavik, what then was they put into the Russian analogue? Judging by the video of the Mavic 3 Thermal, the ultimate dream at the front, basically every little thing on the video.

      Lech from Android You're right, the analysis is not carried out on board. A coord. are not transferred, because how to transfer the coordinates of the object, if the analysis has not yet been carried out, the object is not recognized? Also carried out on the ground. Well, except for close, simple and unmasked purposes. By eye.

    Despite its small size, the UAV is capable of conduct reconnaissance from a height of up to 1 thousand meters and is in the air up to 40 minutes.
    A fly in the ointment: He will only climb 1000 m, these 40 minutes, go ahead. request

      These data are rather related to the maximum figures for the ceiling and viewing range. The working height is usually smaller.

      On the other hand, from a height of one kilometer, you can scan objects within a radius of 20 km. With appropriate optics and thermal imaging.

      I have a cheap Chinese drone ... for 7k ... takes off above the 20th floor in 8-10 seconds
      Up to 1 kilometer, I think the binoculars have a maximum speed ... because it’s not a long-range drone ... but a short-range reconnaissance 2-3 km ahead to see

      per kilometer you can fly away in 30-40 seconds, but at this speed the charge is consumed very quickly

    Military equipment, especially reconnaissance ... nothing brilliant, nothing superfluous, simplicity, reliability and efficiency.

    Well, then .... and this is possible (although it sounds almost "fantastic" for a Russian company!) ... if you buy sets of components in China in as large a batch as possible (!) And show "modesty" when "forming" prices for the "finished" product! (Ugh! I said it, but I myself can’t even believe about the “modesty” of Russian companies! request )

      In China, everything can be bought as for a designer ... SoC, engines, even a frame for a canopy, wiring
      Going through manufacturers and characteristics ... in some cases, with proper selection, it will be cheaper than Chinese "factory" products, because many, in general, are also made by them
      This is not a heavy drone for target designation ... a bucket of weather errors will not make

      Sober reckoning...
      1) Patriots and the public will notice "generous entrepreneurs" fellow
      2) "Free praise" of "Binoculars" will begin on all Runet resources good
      3) From Moscow, the generals will receive a "wishes" to support "generous entrepreneurs" with orders ... soldier
      4) One or two batches at the "old price" (low) wink
      5) But then, when the "Chinese" code is moved away from military orders - an "improvement" of the performance characteristics of the "Binoculars" may begin - they will raise the "height ceiling" by 100 meters - and I will raise the price the same - so that the "generous entrepreneurs" will not will remain bully

    It is equipped with a thermal imager that allows you to open enemy positions at any time of the day,
    This little baby is also equipped with a heat gun. This means that it will not fly in one direction, but also return.

    It is logical that they began to produce a military version of the Mavics. Still, the requirements for a civilian drone are fundamentally different ... For example, the security forces must be able to land civilian drones ... So that they don’t fly to visit Comrade Xi)

    It sounds cool, of course, and I would like to believe that it is true. It's hard to believe, unfortunately. If Mavics cost 3 times as much, it's clearly not at the expense of the markup. Although I did not collect drones myself, but as far as I know the Chinese, the price determines the quality. It’s good if the achieved quality matches the price, because the drone is a consumable. And it is unlikely that under the conditions of the operation of electronic warfare and drone strikers, it will act. And the target recognition software built into the drone is all the more know-how that costs money, big money, big money and a long time to develop. So, to be honest, it is doubtful. Stay tuned for further news

      This is not know-how. Recognition is a hundred years old at lunchtime. Now a tank can be made without a crew if desired.

    I don't believe in all this! And I won't believe it until I see it with my own eyes.
    But if all this is still true, such a drone will be useful to our military participating in the NWO in Ukraine.

    Write people who saw the drone on TV or on the Internet. Dear writers, do any of you have a more or less decent drone? Do you know how to use it at least 50%? Which of the "experts" writing here has at least crusts on the flight operation of a UAV weighing up to 30 kg? People work and bow to them, even if for a small share ... but they don’t write nonsense on VO.
