US special forces got pocket drone

50
The special operations forces of the US Marine Corps have acquired PD-100 Black Hornet miniature drones from the Norwegian development. 16-centimeter helicopter can be in the air for 25 minutes, transmitting the image from three cameras, writes the Marine Corps Times.




The training course for the Marines to use UAVs is very simple, it takes half an hour. In the set carried on the chest, the weight of the 1.2 kg is a control panel, two apparatuses the size of a palm, which are intended for reconnaissance and observation. One Black Hornet camera is looking forward, the other is down and forward at an angle of 45 degrees, the third is strictly down. The cameras have a night mode and they can shoot in the infrared.

“It is impossible to detect a drone,” the designation emphasized.

Drones are charged from the outlet, a standard battery of an army radio, car cigarette lighter, the device is insensitive to wind and rain.

From the moment of the first exhibition to the adoption of the device into service only one year passed.

    I am glad that the article on the new American drones was issued with a photograph of the new Russian ZSU-23-4М4 “Shilka-M4”. The hint is clear, bravo!

        At an altitude of more than a hundred meters, you don’t even pay attention to him, our noisy quadrocopter recently watched, but as soon as he got higher, the noise disappeared and the picture on the monitor was excellent and by the way, our journalists from Syria now show the pictures from above, thanks to the quadrocopters .. .. True, they are many times more pin.dos.skogo helicopter.

        From 50 meters even a 600x600 hexacopter can no longer be heard, but from 100 to the naked eye it is difficult to notice. And cameras with FullHD "see" at 500 meters. We checked it ourselves when we made a panoramic shooting of the dacha array. So the fight against such detection tools is really an urgent problem.

    Not really, really impossible?
    ... on the chest of the kit weighing 1.2 kg there is a control panel ... ... a 16-cm helicopter can be in the air for 25 minutes

    Well, if so, then the Marine should be on the territory of the enemy. I do not think that the drone has a high flight speed, and it is able to cover large areas. And at what height does he fly? what

      Yes, no territories. This is intelligence within the limits of 500 - 1500 meters. Crap will be very useful in the city, in the mountains and other places where visual intelligence is limited.

        Too much, you said. 150 meters maximum, if this thing is not done through glonass, which is very doubtful with such a small size. After all, she needs not only to fly, but also to receive a control signal and transmit the reverse picture in a less readable version.

          Well, I don’t see any particular problems here ... The same mobile phone is relaying VF with a quite acceptable band and power. It’s just that the parameters of the wafer are artificially limited, because for it’s not ... And having gone to a lower frequency, limited to a worse picture - it is quite possible to get a range of up to a kilometer and a half. But although I am inclined to still count. that in urban areas it will be 500 meters, maybe 300 meters.

    Yes, yes, there was a sharp gust of wind because of the knoll and take pictures of yourself, dear ones, it’s most likely for buildings, when stripping, therefore it’s possible to catch or bring down a bumblebee when flying, but this is a miracle and even more so, we train falcons to hunt for it device (joke)

    A one-time UAV was introduced at MAKS 2015 "EYE".
    Among the unique functions of the drone is the ability to climb to a height of 250 m and transmit footage via Wi-Fi. - The "Eye" weighs 300 grams, and is similar in size to a festive firecracker. The cost of the device is much lower than that of classic UAVs.

    Helicopter-type devices, due to the low horizontal speed, are quite VULNERABLE for small arms, especially with optics.

    it can fly at a speed of up to 10 m / s, with a size of 10 cm from 50 you just won’t see it or you just won’t pay attention ...

    PS: the shavers for him paid 31 lamas bucks in 2012, and all for 160 sets, so not a cheap hornet turns out to be almost 200000 bucks ...

      Dr. Blumenthal, do not use Chinese toys, but buy a normal helicopter (such as a t-rex), even the smallest (125) flies admirably in any wind - there are at least three channel gyroscopes there so it's true about wind resistance (of course I not talking about hurricanes)

      For the professor, you just did not see what a small helicopter’s plastic sample could do, even a drunk friend tried to catch a helicopter (T Rex 250) on the fly, the screw diameter is only 80 cm. The motor is electric. More than 40 seams on your hands.

        Composite blades of a helicopter will blow the head to anyone who sets it up, however, in the helicopter under discussion, the blades are carbon fiber, but their diameter is very small and engine power is small. Not hurt and little finger.
