Training of drone operators has begun in Minsk

Training of cadets of the Armed Forces in the specialty "unmanned aviation complexes "in two specializations, namely," technological operation of unmanned aerial systems "(unmanned aerial vehicle operators and target load operators) and" technical operation of unmanned aerial systems "(engineering and technical personnel), started at the Minsk State Higher Aviation College.

Graduates will be awarded the rank of lieutenant and the qualification "Engineer. Management Specialist". The course of study is 5 years. Upon completion, service in the Armed Forces is provided for in relevant positions related to the operation drones.

"Experts from the world of aviation predict that by the 2015-2020 years, up to one-third of the world military aircraft fleet of advanced countries will become unmanned. And drones will perform the same functions as manned aircraft, with the exception of cargo and personnel transportation," the official military edition.

The newspaper also reminds that the State Military Industrial Committee of Belarus initiated the opening of the state scientific and technical program "Multifunctional unmanned aircraft systems and technologies for their production" for the 2011-2015 years. In addition, in 2008, the command of the Air Force and Air Defense Forces of the Armed Forces of Belarus established the use and development administration for UAVs. In 2010, the 927-th center for the preparation and use of unmanned airline complexes was formed at the airfield near Bereza.

    Recently, articles on similar topics have often appeared. And as already written above, it looks like all this is still on the aircraft modeling circle. There was an article that "instant" and "dry" began to prepare drone projects, but how far from their implementation. I am for the fact that, without slowing down the pace of development and introduction into production of our own unmanned aerial vehicles, they did not buy "Rysey" -Iveko (and other similar analogues of Russian-made equipment), but reconnaissance and strike vehicles of foreign production (until they go to their stream) and prepare specialists for them, build their capabilities into military doctrine.

        Yes, everything is there, except for drums with a large target load. Small and medium-sized Russian companies are now offering a cloud. And operation specialists begin to prepare.

    While the shock drone of the country, whose name here can immediately cause a bunch of minuses and therefore can not be called, furrow airspace over the ocean, ours launch airplanes (language doesn’t dare to call it a drone) with our hands. Well, isn't it funny?
