New development of AIR Group

At the International Salon "Integrated Safety 2013" AIR Group from Moscow will present the latest development - a tether unmanned carrier of the fan type Air 400X - CARRIER of the middle class.

New development of AIR Group

vertical takeoff (landing) Air 170X - OperA

As the general director of the company, Alexey Aravin, said, “this will be a working model, which is planned to be placed within the framework of the Salon exposition”.

The carrier, according to him, is designed to accommodate the payload that solves the problem of monitoring the surrounding airspace and water surface, as well as relaying information of various contents. According to the head of the company, the 128 kg carrier engines with vertical take-off (landing) ensure the lifting of the payload 60-70 kg to a height of 50 m. The carrier is weatherproof and can be operated for 24 hours at wind speeds up to 15 m / s. The Air 400X platform - CARRIER is equipped with flight stabilization systems and GPS navigation. In addition, according to A. Aravin, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) of a new generation of fan type will be presented at the Salon. Thus, Air 250 is an aircraft of enhanced maneuverability, which can be used from sites of limited size and vehicles without additional devices for vertical takeoff and landing. Among its other differences: the possibility of using inside buildings, forests, mountain gorges and caves, as well as landing in the patrol zone and the use of stationary observation points. The UAV is equipped with one fan-type engine located inside the apparatus, which ensures safety during its operation. Able to fly along the route and return to the place of take-off. With a weight of 5 kg, it can carry an optical gyro-stabilized photo-video system weighing up to 2 kg with a viewing angle 270 degree. Horizontal flight can take place with a cruising (maximum) speed of 120 (160) km / h for 3-4 hours with an internal combustion engine or up to 30 minutes. with electric motor.

Air 170X - OperA - UAV of vertical take-off (landing) type and differs from the previous apparatus by the presence of eight fan-type engines. It can be executed in versions “A” and “B” with a mass of 8 and 11 kg with a loading capacity of 1-2 and 2-4 kg, respectively. The flight time of the UAV for option “A” (“B”) is 30-40 (20-30) min. With overall dimensions 910х860х350 mm.

AIR Group (air group) specializes in the development and production of new-generation media and UAVs with a fan-type engine. These devices are characterized by minimal deployment time, increased load capacity, compactness and vertical take-off (landing), increased maneuverability, safety and ease of control during operation. Depending on the size and energy equipment, they are capable of performing the same tasks as the aircraft and helicopter-type UAVs at a qualitatively new level.

According to the company's general director A. Aravin, currently work is underway to create a light-type UAV. In addition, the company's specialists are working to create an optical 2-x component optical system, which is a complex of optical-electronic devices, previously executed separately.

    This is great news! Now the UAV market is one of the fastest growing, so we need to tighten our positions! Only one question, was it really impossible to name in Russian?

      Open your company, build your project, and name it "Marfushka" or whatever you like. And in the modern world, in the global market, it is better to leave the jumba curbstone. Yumba curbstone hurts marketing.

        But Kalashnikov, RPG and so on and so forth - also unsuccessful marketing moves?

    The good thing is that many more people and organizations are engaged in real affairs and not speculation. I leave the technical aspects of this device to the court of specialists.

      There are a lot of sensible people in the country. Rich in talents Russia.
      But the Aircraft Industry is driven by Razpilshiki - Pogosy and Manturovs.

    Advanced technology must be moved to our troops.
    But reality, unfortunately, has nowhere worse - all the latest and demanded achievements of our engineers and scientists with rare exceptions are not profitable
    real implementation.
    The inertia of thinking is too great among officials of various stripes, both in the army and in civilian life.

    It’s a very interesting device ... I especially liked that it can be easily maneuvered both in a building and in a forest ... as I understand it, maneuverability is one of the most important advantages of this model.

    At first glance, not bad. But how will it show in real, combat, conditions? For the Ministry of Emergencies, what is needed, but for the Ministry of Defense, is doubtful. The good news is that the development is underway. And if there are developments, then there will be some kind of result.

    And in the meantime:
    Huge unmanned aircraft will monitor the movements of troops on the Polish border. The country will be included in the NATO AGS (Alliance Ground Surveillance) program, which aims to monitor ground targets from the air, the Rzeczpospolita newspaper reported on Friday.
    The board of directors of NAGSMO, the organization managing the NATO AGS program, has accepted a statement from the Polish Ministry of National Defense to participate in this project. Jacek Sonta, a spokeswoman for the agency, said the agency had decided to prepare the relevant documents.
    “After they are sent to Poland, they will be subject to discussion and international agreement for at least six months,” Sonta reports. Poland may be accepted into the program at the beginning of 2014.
    AGS is a radar system designed to monitor ground-based objects on board the RQ-4 Global Hawk unmanned aerial vehicles. Data from them is transferred to the operational base of the AGS, and then to the reconnaissance units of the troops participating in the project.
    The data of the Polish Ministry of National Defense indicate that several Polish companies involved in the production of radars, for example, Bumar Elektronika, Netline, WI and Transbit, can take part in this project.

    This is for the Ministry of Internal Affairs, this is not suitable for the army..
    I don't know how for the army, but for the Navy, after the appropriate revision, I think that will be the most. Space on the ship is limited, in an airplane way (except for aircraft carriers) you cannot put a large UAV on a helipad. I think that "ventilators" will soon enter service with our class 1-2 ships.
    Speaking of the Poghosan and manture.
    They are government people and are obliged to think about what to feed the workers of the aircraft industry. Therefore, orders will be given by the state. firms. And from a private trader they will buy what the research institutes and design bureaus could not come up with. In the meantime, this is just a "rehash" of US toys. They did not develop a combat UAV with specified performance characteristics. Yes, to meet the requirements of autonomy (intelligence of the board), stealth (stealth), decent payload, etc.
