To combat unmanned aerial vehicles and electronic systems of the enemy, a wide range of means with different principles of operation is proposed. An interesting variant of the suppression and destruction of air targets was recently proposed by specialists from the Moscow Border Institute of the FSB. They have developed and patented a special drone with electromagnetic weapons.

A forward-looking concept

A new version of a special UAV is described in patent No. 2787694 "Unmanned aerial vehicle for destroying enemy electronic equipment." The authors of the invention are A.Yu. Berdnikov and S.N. Kukankov. The patent holder is the Moscow Border Institute of the FSB of Russia. The application for a patent was filed in August 2022. The date of registration of the invention is January 11, 2023.

The essence of the invention is quite simple. To combat unmanned aerial targets and ground electronic systems, it is proposed to use a UAV of an original design, armed with an electromagnetic pulse generator ammunition. In the description of the invention, similar systems of the past are recalled, which show the fundamental possibility of manufacturing and using EMRweapons.

The patent provides a general description of the design dronecarrier and its ammunition. Also attached are schematic images of these products, showing their main features.

The development organization received a patent, but the status of the project is unknown. Perhaps everything was limited only to the development of a general concept. However, it cannot be ruled out that a real UAV has already been developed on its basis, and in the foreseeable future it will become known about its testing or even its implementation in the troops or law enforcement agencies.

Unmanned platform

The concept project proposes the use of a specially designed UAV, initially capable of carrying a special payload. The appearance and technical features of such an air platform are determined by the specific role and ammunition used. However, nothing fundamentally excludes the use of another carrier drone.

The diagrams for the patent show an aircraft of normal aerodynamic configuration with a cylindrical fuselage of high elongation and a conical nose cone. In the central part of the fuselage, a medium-sized rectangular wing of small elongation was placed. In the tail - plumage with rudders. The wing should be made of flexible material; plumage extends from the fuselage.

According to the patent, a special UAV should be delivered in a transport and launch container with folded planes. This will simplify the transportation and start-up of the product in all operating conditions. In connection with the use of TPK, the drone needs a separate starting engine, which is reset after the initial acceleration. In addition, a parachute system is provided for a safe return.

View from above. Solar panels shown in black

The UAV must be fully electric. On board it is proposed to place a battery of sufficient capacity. The top surface can be used to install solar panels. The flight is carried out by an electric motor with a pusher propeller.

For observation in flight, two sets of optical means are provided, top and bottom on the fuselage. In connection with the use of TPK, optical stations must be retractable. It is also necessary to provide a permanent connection with the video signal transmission to the operator.

Dimensions, weight and performance characteristics of such a UAV are not given. They are to be determined at the development stage of a real project, taking into account existing needs and technical capabilities. In general, the device must be able to fly over a considerable range and long-term duty in a given area.

Special ammo

The patent also describes the design and principle of operation of a special ammunition that hits targets with the help of EMP. In fact, in this capacity it is proposed to use a small-sized unguided rocket with special equipment. The UAV does not have the ability to carry it under the fuselage or under the wing, and therefore the missile must be mounted on its nose. In this case, it serves as a kind of temporary fairing.

The ammunition is carried out in a cylindrical case with a head fairing. An explosive electromagnetic pulse generator and a remote control system for detonation are placed inside the case. The tail compartment is given over to a small-sized solid propellant engine. No flight controls are provided.

The technical characteristics of the ammunition or its warhead are not given. As in the case of the UAV, such features of the missile should be determined at the design stage.

Work principles

As conceived by the authors, the use of a drone with an electromagnetic missile is not difficult. With the help of a regular TPK, the UAV should be launched, after which, under the control of the operator, it is sent to a given area. With the help of optical systems, the operator must monitor the airspace or the ground and look for a target to attack.

When a target is detected - an enemy UAV, radar, communication station, etc. - the operator must bring his drone to a combat course. Then, a special ammunition is launched from a safe distance, and the UAV leaves. Using a single rocket, he can return to the launch site and land with a parachute. After the necessary preparation, the UAV will be able to fly again.

Diagram of an EMP rocket. 1 - body; 10 - remote detonation system; 11 - explosive magnetic generator; 12 - engine; 13 - lattice for docking with the UAV

At the optimal point of the trajectory, the rocket detonates the explosive magnetic generator. In this case, EMP of sufficient power is formed. Depending on the parameters of the generator and the target, the impulse can temporarily disable the radio system or cause fatal damage to it. It is expected that the electronics of small UAVs will simply burn out from such an impact, and more protected targets will likely need to be repaired.

promising idea

Known and used a number of ways to combat unmanned aerial vehicles. In particular, various radio engineering systems that affect the electronics of the target drone are widely used. Basically, these are jammers of various kinds, only suppressing radio channels.

Also, the issue of using an electromagnetic pulse against UAVs and other targets has been worked out for a long time. In theory, this principle of influence has great prospects and is of interest from the point of view of practical application. In this regard, different versions of EMP weapons are regularly offered, designed to combat unmanned aerial vehicles. aviation or other means of the enemy.

The concept from the Moscow Border Institute builds on these ideas and offers a new way to implement them. EMP weapons are proposed to be made in the form of a compact unguided rocket, to which an unmanned carrier is attached. With all this, the architecture of the complex allows you to reduce its size and weight, making it portable or portable.

At the level of the basic concept, such a development looks interesting, and the proposed methods of exploitation and combating targets are logical and feasible. However, the real potential of such a UAV can be discussed only after the transformation of general ideas from a patent into a real project.

At the development stage, the main engineering problems will be solved, and in addition, certain difficulties may appear that also require attention. Also of great importance for the implementation of any concept is the conduct of full-scale tests. They provide verification of products and principles of operation in conditions as close as possible to real ones, and allow identifying and correcting design flaws.

Concept and implementation

At what stage the project from the Moscow Border Institute of the FSB is now is unknown. Everything could have been limited to the development of a general concept and a patent, but it cannot be ruled out that the institute is already working on a real UAV and ammunition for it.

One way or another, the emergence of such a concept and a patent shows that various organizations and enthusiasts are ready to develop unmanned aircraft and advanced weapons. Many are already presenting ready-made samples with different functions and even testing them in a combat zone. And it cannot be ruled out that in the near future UAVs with EMP missiles will also be tested on the enemy.

        laugh))) well, firstly, the method of operation of explosive magnetic generators is very similar to the method of exploding a nuclear weapon. Only here there is an ultra-fast compression (due to the explosion of explosives) of the solenoid, and not subcritical fractions of the nuclear charge. The generated superstrong magnetic field is the source of EMP. And secondly, there are no such chemical elements in principle. Well, unless you mean trying to get EMP through a nuclear explosion.

        I also think that the key point is the power of the pulse and, accordingly, the radius of destruction. All electronic warfare in the form of a jammer, as shown by the SVO, does not make any sense, only disabling electronics. But, as far as I understand, only EMP from nuclear weapons is sufficiently effective, everything else is the same fairy tale as about the omnipotence of electronic warfare.

        Explosive compression of a coil with current - explosive magnetic generator of Academician A.D. Sakharov, for example. Used in scientific research. However, with other purposes.

          if you explain in simple terms from the appointment - these are magnetic field amplifiers. For example, the VMG can raise the field strength from 10kG to 1MGs. They are used in accelerators, where a powerful magnetic field is required to accelerate particles.

        1. Energy flux density is measured in W/m^2
        2. The density of the radiation flux from a point source decreases inversely proportional to the square of the distance to the source.
        there is no escape from the inverse square law in our dimension

        I= delta W / (4*pi*delta t*R^2)=P/(4*pi*R^2)
        the explosion of 200 kg of explosive at MGEMI will emit 50 megajoules. At 300 m distance, you get ~ 40 J / m ^ 2 and several joules of energy in the receiving path of the electronics, from which you can protect yourself. At the same time, 3 km from the explosion site, the indicators will be only hundreds Millijoules per m^2
        3. EMP is like a strong photo flash, only in the radio range, and the damaging factor is not only I, but also the duration and amplitude of the pulses, which are determined by the voltage of the electrical component of the electromagnetic field and are expressed in volts per meter.
        Values ​​from 5 kV/m lead to damage to electrical devices. A nuclear explosion has an amplitude of 200 units.
        4. Electromagnetic pulses generated by lightning have a duration of 1 millisecond with an amplitude of no more than 10 kV / m in the vicinity of lightning and up to 2 kV / m at 100-200 m. The electromagnetic pulse generated by a weapon has a voltage of up to 100 kV / m ( a laboratory value of 200 units is the maximum) at a distance of several meters and in an amount of 1 kV / m at 100 m from the explosion site with a duration of 100 to 200 milliseconds.

        Given all of the above, anyone can calculate and decide really this

        Theoretically, an EMP pulse should also disable radio stations and the electronic filling of vehicles

        You practically, when you drove cars, flew on an airplane, sailed (walked) on a ship, VERY often fell under a lightning strike. And How ? Is your car's electronics and radio out of order? did the plane fall from the sky?

        On average, according to scientists, the power of lightning is tens of gigawatts (10^9 watts), but can reach several petawatts (10^12 watts).

        A vircator (VIRtual CAthode OscillatOR) is a tube microwave frequency generator made in the form of a triode or klystron. It is classified as a High Power Microwave (HPM) device and is a key component in the electromagnetic pulse (EMP) weapon arsenal as well as microwave energy transmission.
        The output from the vircator tube is a waveguide and possibly an antenna that directs the HPM beam towards the target. Peak power levels of 10^10W are possible. The wavelength of power generation from the vircator device is in the microwave frequency range, eg 4 GHz and above, and includes the useful output power in x-ray wavelengths. At these short wavelengths, the transfer of destructive energy to more sensitive electronics becomes very efficient with a destructive EMP type effect.

          I do not see anything useful in this invention. By the way, since Soviet times, the applicant is not required to prove the usefulness of his invention, since the applicant pays a fee for the application, the main thing is to prove the novelty. This is where the "projections" come from. It is pointless to talk about the practical implementation, if they were going to implement it, they would have assigned the stamp "secret".

      Well, if you don’t rattle populist slogans, but think, then there are a lot of reasons for not accepting and lacking prospects for development for a series. Most - the inability of developers to bring the idea to a full-fledged development. Most often due to lack of funding. This applies mainly to either private traders or small independent design bureaus. That is, there is an idea, maybe even a project. Maybe even a patent. But this is not enough to pass the development. In the US, there is support for such developers - venture capital companies. They can, and usually do, provide money for full-fledged R&D. We have almost none. Therefore, talented homemade people run around the country with ideas, but to no avail. However, it was the same in the days of the USSR

    There are working structures generating an EMP impulse. How effective they are at weight/area 100 in destroying electronics is unknown. Most likely classified information chipboard. And most likely the efficiency is not very good. Otherwise, all MLRS would have missiles with such a filling. The first one flies, 5 minutes before the main package, destroys the connection, albeit locally, and then the rest of the package finishes off both people and equipment, and it’s not even possible to prevent them, and hide accordingly.

      How effective they are at weight/area 100 in destroying electronics is unknown.

      Everything is just known. Ammunition with a range of 200 meters will weigh 900 kg. As for the percentage of disabled electronics, a lot depends on what design, from what elements, the presence of protection and a number of other factors.

    EMP weapons are proposed to be made in the form of a compact unguided rocket, to which an unmanned carrier is attached.

    The development of the "electronic bomb" has been going on for a long time and intensively, and there are a lot of publications on this topic. Including about the problems accompanying the creation process. One of the main ones is the size and weight of the starting current source, which is used as high-voltage capacitors, small FC generators or MHD devices capable of producing an electric current pulse from tens of kA to units of MA. Therefore, an EMP munition with a range of 200 meters has a weight of 900 kilograms. Let me remind you - the payload of the Baykar Bayraktar TB2 UAV is 150 kg, the British MQ-9 Reaper has 1700 kg.
    From here, one can approximately imagine the dimensions of the "compact projectile" and the "attached carrier" and assess the competence of both the "invention" and the article describing this "wunderwaffe".

    Judging by the rather rough description, it is precisely such a project that is not viable.
    In any case, 2 optical systems, solar panels in the wings greatly raise its cost.

    If the emy charge is highly effective, it is easier to deliver it simply with a projectile or rocket, it is possible to install it as a detachable module on standard UAVs.

    If it works only at close range, then it’s easier to put some kind of shrapnel instead of Amy.

    It looks like descriptions of possible patents, such as "detection of stealth aircraft by comparing the background radiation of the universe", the sensors of which will be distributed throughout the aircraft's skin ...

      It is clear that to create a more or less compact, non-nuclear device. generating EMP of some significant power is impossible, but it is possible to build a large ground-based stationary pulse generator (not disposable and even directional) today. Placing a number of such generators on the front line can seriously complicate the use of UAVs by the enemy.

Ideally, for delivery vehicles, it is also necessary to develop a unified constructor - a motor, an ols, a locator, a reset means, a warhead ... and in which case to stuff it and with what software to equip the question will be the second ..

    As far as I know, such ammunition of various capacities was developed long ago, therefore, only the development of UAVs with the appropriate technical characteristics is necessary for their delivery. It is not clear why a fighter satellite cannot be armed with such ammunition to disable the enemy satellite constellation as an asymmetric response to the supply of deadly weapons for the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Better war in space than strikes with tactical nuclear weapons on the ground.
    As a result, our space grouping may also suffer, but the enemy will definitely be left without "eyes and ears" and targeting systems for high-precision weapons. You look at all this and there is no end to surprise. Well, when will political impotents leave this power?

    They wrote something that the Russian Federation has such EMP ammunition ... but it’s not visible. They say that there is a kind of thermonuclear ammunition, where the main energy goes to impulse and radiation, and the explosion itself and the contamination of the area are minimal.

      If a thermonuclear bomb is detonated high enough, then EMP will be like one of the damaging factors of a nuclear explosion, but radioactive contamination will be low and short-lived.

    In applications for inventions, it is usually written "... characterized in that ....". In this case, it differs in that the known electromagnetic bomb system is transported by a UAV. Just.. It's up to you to apply... Only in my application, the bomb will be transported by a non-powered glider. And what an innovation. Most likely, no one has filed such an application.

    Intellectual power is felt, but what exactly is the patent novelty? in that the warhead of the drone is in the form of a "rocket under the front fairing? or in the fact that the drone with "electric drive and solar panels" carries an EMP charge?? AAA novelty is that this is an invention of the FSB border guards institute ..

    If you can hit a target with a rocket, then why bother with EMP?

    The EMP Explosion Generator is a rather expensive toy, the idea is a dead end. UAVs now cost a penny, and it is possible to reduce the effective EMP impact zone on such a product by slightly increasing the cost of the design itself (no one has canceled the Faraday cage and other methods).

    What was the patent for? For special ammunition with VMG inside or for UAVs, with this super-munition?
    Neither the concept of application, nor the idea, nor the design of the product can withstand criticism in principle ...

    Young people are tired of iPhones, now they are inventing flying gadgets? Previously, there was a fashion for quadrocopters, only the lazy did not collective farm something on quadrocopters. Now, apparently, the crisis of the genre, because collective farms generally unknown animal. It was correctly noted here that instead of solving real problems, they come up with garbage. As for flying cockroaches, there are enough electronic warfare guns, and "Shells". It would be better if they made a symbiosis of a small-sized radar and some kind of Cord thread to grind cockroaches

    the advantage of EMP ammunition can only manifest itself in space - because it makes it possible to hit equipment without destroying its integrity.

    Well, like small children, you need a patent for promotion, scientific work, so to speak, ash is clear :-)
    So they crossed a snake with a hedgehog and even a solar battery thud, in order to exclude any doubts about the appointment ...
    For snakes have been around for a long time, and hedgehogs also quite successfully hunt mice.

    With the modern development of technology, this project with the declared characteristics is unrealizable, and some ideas are useless, or rather drawn by a non-specialist. There is a project for drinking money.
    Brief information for those interested. An average brushless electric motor pulling an airplane model weighing 2-3 kg - and an inflexible wing with a lift coefficient of 1,9 weighs 100-140 grams and produces 200W. Current consumption is about 20 amps. The solar panels drawn on the project will give out 40-50 watts in the sunniest weather. It seems good, but the controller for charging the battery also weighs at least 70 grams. Yes, a battery, and an optics-navigation system. And it remains for the payload of 100 grams. The question is: what technologies will make it possible to make an Emi generator weighing 100 grams of the required power. Even, simply by removing the solar panels with the controller for the payload will be already 200 grams. With a loss of 2% range.

    Or this thing must be the size of a Boeing. The price too.

    Conclusion: another trampoline for space.
