In Russia there will be ranges for UAVs

Russia will create special test sites for UAVs, reports ITAR-TASS with reference to the Deputy Director General of the Foundation for Advanced Studies Igor Denisov.

In Russia there will be ranges for UAVs

“Through the line of the Ministry of Defense and the Ministry of Industry and Trade, issues of deployment of testing ranges for unmanned testing are being studied aviation»- Denisov said without specifying specific dates for the implementation of plans.

He noted that today in Russia work is underway to create combat unmanned aircraft, “but they are still in their infancy”. “The problem is that the decision to lose is made by a person anyway. And in this sense, the idea of ​​drones, which will automatically find targets and independently hit them, while bordering on fiction "- said Denisov.

He recalled that in Russia there are remotely operated vehicles that are equipped with weapons of destruction, but the tasks they solve are far from those that solve similar robots in the United States.

“Our combat vehicles are also being developed and improved, but so far, unfortunately, there are only a few samples. True, there are a lot of products that are not combat robots in the literal sense of the word, but are made according to a similar principle - these are cruise missiles and guided missiles. ”- gave the example of the head.

According to him, the Foundation “works very closely with the Ministry of Defense in terms of developing and creating promising UAVs of all types.”

"We do not duplicate the current state armaments program, but form a scientific and technical reserve for the future state program“- Denisov explained.

    In Russia, there is a lot of space, enough for everyone, even drones! Pry, peep ..

      In Russia there is no civilian center where training for the drone operator would be conducted! Under DOSAAF, the ancients did not even understand the term itself. There is no need to conduct championships, training camps ... given the thousands of schoolchildren who are fond of this ... Georgia has already been, but still.

        Sarcasm! there are many model airplane builders in Russia. They, like no one else, know how to control flying vehicles and can turn into a real headache for our enemies. But I agree that there are no training centers. Everything here is based on enthusiasm ... But if we squeeze us in, we will not do that. To give an example: the United States has spent colossal money on the development of the material and shape of its stealth weapons. Russia did not take this path. She invented a device that, by installing it on the same plane, would jam everything that could irradiate it within a radius of 100 km. This was recently demonstrated with the latest US destroyer Donald Cook, armed with the equally advanced Aegis missile systems. Our SU-24 with a jammer, having flown over the deck of this "creation" a couple of times, forced the crew of the ship to "put in their pants". So to speak, I see a target but I can't attack it, because nothing works ...

    Keep it up. Harness for a long time. But our engineering was never lazy. I hope our drones, designed for harsh operating conditions, will not be worse, but better than generally recognized.

      Harness for a long time, but there are a lot of questions. Recently, they had a contest “New approaches to providing unsupported communications,” which is very important, but what kind of drone can be easily planted, etc. Good luck and further development!

    The main thing is that there should be drones on them. Although, Teal pleases. But he still went beyond the scope of the project.

    Now there will be not only a rubber fleet, but also an unmanned flotilla!

    Today in Russia, work is underway to create combat unmanned aircraft, "but they are still in their infancy."

    this condition is already beginning to seem contraceptive to unmanned aircraft in Russia!
    how not to recall the analogy ..
    German MANPADS Luftfaust
    and the first Soviet MANPADS Strela ...
    30 years later!

    Not bad. Another plus is: The first batch of the latest nuclear fuel tablets to be used in the nuclear energy industry of the future was produced at the enterprise of the state corporation Rosatom Mining and Chemical Combine (MCC) in the Krasnoyarsk Territory, this type of fuel is being prepared for serial production for the first time in the world, the press reports. -service of the plant.

    Not quite the topic, Israel refused to sell drones to Ukraine, so as not to anger Russia. The Israeli Foreign Ministry blocked the decision to sell drones to Ukraine. In turn, the Israeli Ministry of Defense agreed to the supply of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) manufactured by Aeronautics. This was reported by AFP with reference to exclusive information from the Israeli TV Channel 2 news service. The Ukrainian delegation agreed on the sale of weapons. The refusal to sell military goods to Ukraine, according to journalists, appeared because it could irritate Moscow. The Israeli Ministry of Defense declined to comment on this post, citing the fact that they did not comment on information on arms supply contracts. It should be noted that Israel, along with the United States, is a leader in the production of unmanned aerial vehicles, both reconnaissance and strike.

    The positive effect of the sanctions is the development of all domestic liberals out of the government. Well, if we can’t do anything yet, you can buy it from friendly countries.

    I'd like to keep up with this area! Well, as usual, we have everything new and necessary, always in a "rudimentary state". Even a person far from military science understands what benefits the use of UAVs promises! But this is not only about tactical successes, not about successes in intelligence, etc. , but about human lives!

    I read the headline - "In Russia, there will be training grounds for unmanned aerial vehicles." The thought immediately arises in my head: "Will the drones themselves appear ?!" I read further - "... today in Russia, work is underway to create combat unmanned aircraft," but they are still in their infancy. "
    Well - and that’s good! lol

    I'd like to see a domestic, full-fledged, combat "Drone". I think if we had a full-fledged competition (it is also a tender), then things would go faster, the rival could offer the army his own version at any time.

    The main thing is not to get carried away by everyone who knows how to van der wafers. The first thing that needs to be determined is the strategy and tactics of application, and then it will become clear what exactly is needed and in what form. From the point of view of global intelligence, high-altitude UAVs with powerful optics and RTR means are needed. From the point of view of the tactical link, small-sized UAVs of an airplane and helicopter type with escort and target designation are needed, and from the point of view of combat use from a standby state, long-range barrage ammunition is of most interest. The latter are interesting in combination of characteristics. They are cheaper than multi-purpose drone UAVs, and the right military economy is the key to victory. For example, for the price of one Predator, you can release, with a competent approach, a dozen three, if not more, barrage of ammunition. And the life of the Predator in the area of ​​contact with a serious opponent will not be long. Air defense and electronic warfare will not allow. Now imagine a picture, over an enemy’s head in a theater of operations, 10-20 cluster anti-material BPs are constantly hanging. I imagined I almost managed it. :) Active actions with the use of armored vehicles in the area of ​​such a cover are catastrophically difficult if not simply impossible. Clearly, I embellished the fry, but I think the essence is clear. As history shows, mass production, albeit inferior in its characteristics and range of capabilities, of devices for warfare is strategically more profitable than producing units of masterpieces of technical thought.

    A few years ago, in Kazan, we demonstrated a drone made at an aviation institute through local channels. It fits in a diplomat, throws himself up with his hands, drops on a parachute, 3 hours in the air. Aerial view helps the migration service to identify migrant workers at construction sites. the picture is clear, the truth is black and white. It seems to me a good help for the special forces.

    “The problem is that the decision to defeat in any case is made by a person. And in this sense, the idea of ​​drones that will automatically find targets and hit them on their own, while bordering on fantasy, ”said Denisov.

    Yes, not any fiction. Everything will depend on which sensors you hang on it and what knowledge you provide. The question is that anyone can fall under the distribution. Mattress covers once very well pricked on this in my opinion during the Iraqi campaign.
    Shock UAVs will be needed too. Suppose if you need to find and work out a target at a distance of 150 - 200 km. Suppose UAV strike operators may be Air Force pilots who have not passed the commission for health reasons.
