The construction of the State Center for Unmanned Aviation continues

In the Moscow Region Kolomna, the construction of the State Center for Unmanned aviation ministries of defense. A new organization within the military department is being created on the basis of the Interspecific Center for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles. The task of the State Center will be the training of personnel and the training of unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) operators. All work on creating a new organization should be completed before the beginning of next year.

According to the press service of the Ministry of Defense, at present, as part of the creation of the State Center for Unmanned Aviation, various works are being carried out on the reconstruction of existing facilities and the construction of new ones. Repair and renovation of research and educational buildings, barracks, canteen, library and a number of other facilities of the future State Center is underway. By the end of the year, a medical center with an infirmary, a typical universal sports training complex, a stadium, a hostel, and the necessary communal infrastructure should appear next to these facilities.

After completion of the construction, the State Center for Unmanned Aviation will train specialists for various departments. The organization will begin to train military personnel from various departments, as well as representatives of various law enforcement agencies and executive authorities, who will have to work with unmanned aerial vehicles. The creation of the State Center will allow optimizing the educational process and increasing the efficiency of training specialists.

While the State Center has not started its work and the construction of its facilities continues, the training of future UAV operators is conducted on the basis of the Interspecific Center of unmanned aerial vehicles. The training is carried out by military personnel who have been selected in accordance with the requirements for their qualifications. Training begins with a course of theoretical training, in which future operators study the design of equipment and features of its operation. Having mastered the theoretical knowledge, students are moving to the use of simulators. With the help of the latter, future specialists receive the necessary skills. The course ends with practical exercises using the UAV in the conditions of the landfill.

An additional task of the Interspecies Center, and in the future of the State Center, is the testing of new unmanned aerial vehicles offered for supply to the armed forces. The center is a platform for conducting military tests of new UAVs before they are put into service. During such events, employees of the organization check the real capabilities of the new equipment, and also prepare recommendations for the front-line units, who will have to use it. If necessary, experts assist and advise manufacturers of unmanned vehicles.

A few months ago, the Ministry of Defense published information about the work of the Interspecies Center for unmanned aerial vehicles last year. According to the announcement, in 2013, this organization trained 800 specialists with skills to work with new equipment. Plans for the current 2014 year involve the training and retraining of 900 UAV operators. Trained personnel are sent to serve in the appropriate units of all military districts.

In accordance with existing plans, the National Center for Unmanned Aviation of the Ministry of Defense should start work in 2015 year. Structural transformations and construction of new facilities will allow this organization to work with greater efficiency, including preparing a larger number of specialists. This will speed up the process of equipping troops with unmanned aerial vehicles and personnel with the necessary training.

At present, only reconnaissance UAVs of various classes are used in the armed forces and power structures of Russia. This technique allows units to conduct reconnaissance of enemy positions and monitor the necessary areas. Some of the used UAVs are equipped with a combined surveillance system with a video camera and a thermal imager, which allows monitoring at any time of the day.

It is noteworthy that the UAVs in the troops are used not only for military purposes. Now several units equipped with such equipment are involved in extinguishing fires in the Chelyabinsk region. The drones Zastava and Orlan operate from the Chebarkul training ground, while the heavy Forpost UAVs are relocated to the Shagol airfield. The task of the operators of these systems is to monitor the situation in the forests and the detection of fires. The information received is transmitted to the relevant units of the Ministry of Emergency Situations, which are engaged in direct fire fighting.

In the future, the State Center of unmanned aircraft will increase work. Now there is a development of new UAVs of several types of different classes, including heavy and shock. Apparently, upon the achievement of the corresponding stages by the projects, it is the specialists of the State Center that will be engaged in checking the new technology. After the adoption of new UAVs, the Center will begin training the operators of this technology.

      Tell me, but Buran can be considered a drone? If so, where are we behind?

        At one time, we were ahead of everyone in drones. Buran, Tu-143, etc.
        Then came democracy, 80% of the industry was cut down even before the onset of the 2000s, technological chains of production were broken. Many nodes are now being produced "abroad" and so on.

        So I think now to assemble a new Buran will be unrealistic. It will be necessary to build new factories for components, etc.

        Therefore, they lagged behind, although they used to be ahead of the rest.

        The center is needed. We need the KLA type concern, only some kind of OABK. Need large corporations. Well, the support of the Kremlin. I think they will bring to mind. There are positive examples. There is money in the treasury. The sane course is.

        Most importantly, understanding has come in terms of personnel. It is necessary to increase salaries and pensions in the defense industry. Rogozin promised to do this in 13-14-15. We will see.

          NO not true. Lagging behind
          1. Buran is not a UAV, yet the definition of UAV is flying vehicle without crew on board. Buran is an orbital spacecraft-aircraft (VKS) (practically ALL of our descent spacecraft landed in automatic mode, ... there is a tolerance of the entry angle of 10 °, while Buran has 20 ') ..

    - Until the center has begun work and construction of its facilities continues, training of future UAV operators is carried out on the basis of the Interspecific Center for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles.
    - Training begins with a theoretical training course, during which future operators study the design of the equipment and the features of its operation.

    A lot of money and time was spent on what the boys do with radio-controlled models without these problems. Would take them by the teachers!

      Ha, and you try to teach a hefty guy at least to "start" a piston engine so that he doesn't knock off his fingers. It’s not easy already. And you need not only this, you need adult men, who are military and not engineers, by the way, to teach how to use laptops and software on them. And far from all of them in physics at school even had fours.

      After all, there are no boys who are taught something after school. There are intelligence officers. the mouth is trained. And for them, sometimes copy-paste in Word is already a sweat-knocking task. :)

    The idea is positive, but due to little personal experience in this matter (years of neglect of such ideas affect), you will probably have to turn to the most probable opponents for help, in particular, to the Israelite religion, especially since it learns better from the mistakes of others, and they already have a fair amount of work in this area.

    So they lived to see the Russian unmanned aircraft. I will not say that I am an ardent supporter of drones, rather the opposite, but still progress! By the way, I would like to believe that Sukhoi does not monopolize this market either. The MiG already has a more or less real "Skat", I hope in the future we will see it taking off from an aircraft carrier! good

      Here is one of the projects of the "striped" attack with the use of an UAV on military targets of the enemy ...
      1. Delivery and discharge by cargo (typically civilian) of the cargo in the immediate vicinity. 2. the cargo in flight is scattered (unpacked) into 50-100 small UAVs and attacks with lightning speed (barraging and determining the target according to the program). 3. as an attack, this type of UAV uses balls (up to chicken size) for various purposes (there are about 7 varieties of them) ... after dropping the UAV, it selects a target and attacks as a rocket. 4. the whole operation takes 5-10 minutes ... the approximate name of the operation (bee swarm)

    I don’t think that we are so far behind, we started one of the first UAVs.
    Milestones and developments exist, we’ll catch up, catch up, the main thing is that the work is activated.
    Temporary downtime and inaction are also positive aspects (as with F-22 - T-50), you can take advantage of the experience of others' mistakes.
    And yet, a whole generation of bespectacled kiddies from computer clubs has grown up, which, unlike us, didn’t play football or robber Cossacks at all, but they are virtuosos in computer shooters, they go to bed with a mouse.

    Let's talk about the effectiveness of creating a UAV center in Kolomna, on the basis of the disbanded artillery school. Everyone remembers the epic of the "transfer" of the Academy. Yu.A. Gagarin to Voronezh from Monino. There were empty buildings, a training airfield, a car park with warm boxes, and most importantly about 300 candidates of military sciences and about 25 doctors without work. All specialists in the planning and use of combat aircraft in operations of various scales. It would be logical for them to propose to tackle the issue of developing ways to use UAVs and determining the needs for the type and their number in ready-to-work places, they chose the artillerymen. The State Duma Committee announced its response to the government's plan for the development of the aviation industry for the period up to 25 years, this plan provides for a reduction in funding by half a trillion rubles, and a reduction in personnel by 30%. Diploma Minister Manturov is a sociologist. The question arises: can we remove the rake from the room?

    Russia must strengthen the expansion of its weapons. By increasing the sales of our weapons, the Russian defense industry will be able to afford, without looking back (the country's budget), to develop an advanced weapon for its army that is capable of guaranteed response to any challenges with minimal casualties. And in the end it’s jobs, replenishment of the budget, the prestige of the country as a superpower.

    Maddened by aggressive militaristic designs, the decaying, schizophrenic mind of the Pentagon military gave rise to a dream of soulless cybernetic killers.
    Generated by a peaceful mind, Russian unmanned aerial vehicles will become an impenetrable wall on the path of a mechanical horde.
    But seriously, it's high time. Finally, the money appeared.
    The Chinese, in general, put all simulation lovers on military records as UAV operators.

    You can not only catch up with the countries developed in this topic, but also make an incredible breakthrough and separation. We, as physicists, developed a propulsion engine on a fundamentally different principle, from the one that exists now. Simplicity and manufacturability remain the same. BUT, the qualitative parameters of the new algorithm for organizing the hydro-gas-dynamic flow are completely different.
