The first domestic engine for UAVs was created in the military industrial complex

74
Russia has created the first domestic engine for prospective UAVs, reports RIA News a message from a representative of the United Instrument-Making Corporation.




“In Russia, until recently, they did not deal with engines for unmanned aerial vehicles; they used foreign ones - they have a different design, less successful, in our opinion. Our engine has a system for limiting vibrations, temperatures, pressure. It provides a UAV flight at a height above 6000 meters, its weight is about 30 kilograms, ”said the source at the Innovation Day of the Defense Ministry of the Russian Federation.

According to him, “the Russian power plant compares favorably with the imported ones in terms of cost - the price of foreign engines reaches four million rubles, and the cost of the Russian installation, together with electronics (sensors and control units), will be about 500 thousand rubles.”

As for quality, “our product, especially in terms of the reliability of sensors and electronic systems, is higher than that of some foreign analogues,” said the representative of the military-industrial complex.

He noted that most foreign engines of this class have 38-43 l / s power. "In our sample, we immediately got 50 horsepower at five thousand revolutions, but we would like to have 70 horsepower - this is real," the source said.

      Our designers have always been and are - the best!
      So for UAVs and for others they simply must develop better and cooler than the rest!
      Moreover, favorable conditions have developed!

        It is possible that when they were created, they glanced at the engines of Israeli UAVs, not so closely, rather sneakily ...

              This refers to direct current as opposed to alternating current. Both electric motors. Although in this case we are talking about ICE,

              The serial production of the APD-500 piston engine for short-range drones is planned to be established by the end of 2017 at the Saturn enterprise in Rybinsk, said a representative of the defense industry complex, TASS reports.

          I'm sorry, but you "bent" it. The overwhelming majority of small and ultra-small two-seater aircraft have American-made Rotox engines with a power of 70 - 100 hp, they don't need more. You in vain attribute such an ancient monster as AN-2 to small aircraft, it takes 15 or more passengers on board. So learn the mat part, google to help you, what engines are on airplanes of small and midget aircraft.

      The Wright brothers' bike mechanic, Charles Tylor, built a water-cooled four-stroke gasoline engine. Motor volume approx. 600 cc, weighed 81 kg, developed 12 hp. As you can see, there is even more information about this engine than about the one for which the brothers would "salivate"! Isn't it too much excitement, and from what?

      For example, on the American impact drone Predator
      Rotax 914 motor costs 100 l / s (at 5500 rpm). It weighs 75 kg.

      Israeli Hermes 450
      uses the R902 (W) engine (wankel), which
      gives 70 hp with a weight of 40 kg.

        If we compare, then can each of them be classified? It seems that the Predator is one of the most powerful drone drums (if not the most). And the thrust-weight ratio and the filling allows him to carry his bosom. Your drone can only be rumored to carry missiles. And we just created an engine for its tasks. Nobody said that he will take dad bombs on the suspension. No one seems to have stated the parameters of the drones for which it was created.

      I do not think that buying "foreign" drones is a road to nowhere. In reality, this is an opportunity to study them in detail, to identify the jambs of local manufacturers, so as not to step on the same rake when developing their own. By the way, in Soviet times the magazine "Modelist-Constructor" was very popular. So somewhere in the 80s there was a publication about the conversion of the engine from the Ural motorcycle for light aircraft. If you believe the author, the engine turned out to be about 20% lighter than the original, and the power was higher by the same ratio - this is the question of the "lack of intelligence" in our people.

    Of course, the article was written for hurray patriots, we are only at the beginning of a long journey. In fact, we did not release anything at all for a modern UAV, and no matter how paradoxical it sounds, we need to thank our Western "partners" for the sanctions, because the process was launched precisely thanks to their efforts.
    But what really pleases is the speed with which changes are taking place in our army. UAVs were produced under the USSR, but for them they couldn’t find a niche in our tactics of using the VS. Comparing Shoigu and Serdyukov, the difference is enormous.

    He noted that most foreign engines of this class have 38-43 l / s power. "In our sample, we immediately got 50 horsepower at five thousand revolutions, but we would like to have 70 horsepower - this is real," the source said.

    Hmm ... Hermes has an engine with a capacity of 150 l / s and a weight of in my opinion less than 30 kg. In any case, I lifted it without much difficulty. Wankel engine.

      uses the R902 (W) engine (wankel), which
      gives 70 hp with a weight of 40 kg.

      Tell me at least one piston engine that would be completely created in the USSR or Russia? There was nothing besides Charomsky and Melkumov aircraft diesel engines. The tank V-2 was originally developed by Chelpan and Chupakhin as an aviation database.

        As for piston engines for aviation, I will not say, but for the rest of their development is complete.

    You can compare.
    For example, on the American impact drone Predator
    Rotax 914 motor costs 100 l / s (at 5500 rpm). It weighs 75 kg.

    Israeli Hermes 450
    uses the R902 (W) engine (wankel), which
    gives 70 hp with a weight of 40 kg.

    "....... New Zealand innovators have built a 2,1-liter four-cylinder boxer engine that has developed 228 horsepower.

    Its weight, mind you, along with a solid integrated starter-generator and exhaust system elements, is only 65 kilograms... That's 3,5 horsepower per kilogram of mass (and no turbocharging) ..... "

      That's for sure, but two-stroke engines with a capacity of over 100 horses somehow don’t do it, I think it’s not casual wink . In general, such motors have plenty of shortcomings (small, compared to 4-stroke, resource and high consumption of fuel-lubricant mixture) that question the feasibility of their use for UAVs

        ".... The renowned Finnish company Wartsila is one of the world leaders in the field of marine propulsion and power systems. In the 1990s, it developed the RTA96-C line of marine engines.
        It inline two stroke diesel engines turbocharged.

        The line - because the customer can order such an engine in the performance of 6 to 14 cylinders. Structurally, these units are absolutely identical.

        The diameter of each cylinder is 960 millimeters, the piston stroke is 2,5 meters.
        Thus, the working volume of the cylinder is 1820 liters. About other parameters - a little later. For now, let's say that about a hundred of these engines in 8, 9, 10, 11 and 12-cylinder versions were delivered to customers.

        Container trucks with a capacity of 6-8 thousand tons, driven by the only such diesel engine, quietly develop 25 knots (more than 46 kilometers per hour) .....

        .... The maximum power of the 14-cylinder RTA96-C reaches 108 thousand 920 horsepower.
        The maximum torque is more than 763 tons.
        The working volume of the super motor is 25 thousand 480 liters .....

        .... In the mode of the lowest specific fuel consumption (not full power), the efficiency exceeds 50% (apparently, this is a record for serial ICEs). And even at full load, the engine's efficiency is not much lower ... "

    Russia has to catch up, for various reasons missed the importance of creating UAVs (you can talk a lot about them) and it's great that it makes up for the lag very actively! This year's exhibitions, the Army and the MAKS showed that a lot of work has been done. Now we are tightening the engines, optics. One hundred percent of the year in 2 already our samples will compete with both the Israeli and the state. For more electronics to raise ...!

    I wonder what is there on fuel?
    In theory, for such purposes, engines should be designed omnivores,
    that it would be possible to refuel from kerosene to diesel fuel for tanks.
    And now we are waiting for the news about our corn engines.
