In the suburbs began testing UAV "Orion"

21
At the Flight Research Institute. Gromov (Zhukovsky) began to test Orion reconnaissance and drone drone, reports RIA News post your source.




The development of a long duration drone in the interests of the Defense Ministry is being carried out by the Kronstadt group of enterprises.

“As part of this project, it was planned to create a drone weighing about a ton. However, at the MAKS-2015 air show, the organization’s president Nikolai Lebedev adjusted some data on Orion - in particular, the drone’s take-off weight increased to 1,2 tons, ”the agency notes.

“It is assumed that the maximum duration of the Orion’s flight will be at least 24 hours, and the altitude will be on the order of 8 kilometers. In this case, the UAV will be able to take on board up to 300 kilograms of payload "- said the source.

“Most likely, taxi tests will be conducted in Zhukovsky, jogging along the runway and, probably, the first flights. But full-fledged flight tests of such a UAV are obviously impossible to carry out in the Moscow region, most likely they will be held at another site, ”said Denis Fedutinov, an expert in the field of unmanned systems, commented on the report.

“At the same time, despite the fact that the tests of the UAV are just beginning, the appearance of the apparatus“ in the gland ”already indicates a serious positive progress in the implementation of this project,” the expert emphasized.

    "At the same time, the UAV will be able to take on board up to 300 kilograms of payload."

    Not enough, we need drone drone. For example, in Syria, the use of an attack drone near the Turkish border would help save the life of a pilot.

        If only they flew, otherwise they show them with enviable constancy, but so far they don’t fly.

          Some garbage. The picture on board clearly does not say Orion, but something in Latin. Israeli screwdriver collection again?

      So, like in the article, this UAV is presented as a reconnaissance strike.

      "In the Flight Research Institute named after Gromov (Zhukovsky), they have begun testing the Orion reconnaissance and strike UAV," RIA Novosti reported a message from its source. "

      And I don’t know how you think, but I’m definitely able to give up with 8km. 300kg (minus optics, etc.) and even within 24 hours. It seems quite impressive.
      I completely agree with you regarding the application. If such birds flew around the DB zone in Syria around the clock and hammer everything that was moving from an unattainable height, then there would be much more representatives of the moderate opposition per unit of time. And our pilots would go for a little extra fat. And there would be no casualties among the l / s.

        Accurately throw from a height of 8 km. only guided weapons are allowed. To do this, you need to hang an aiming container on the UAV, which is not (I hope not yet).
        And what can be thrown from the UAV is also not yet available. We need specialized small-sized light ammunition. If we hang typical, then the UAV will be of the "Predator" type, weighing 10-20 tons. We are developing this one, it is also "stealth".
        So wait, sir.

        Why is it so difficult to hang noodles on your ears. Do not unmanned aerial vehicles such as Orlan-10 fly in Syria? Place in Alepo the "Coalition SV" self-propelled guns (SV Coalition) with a range of more than 50 km or the "Tornado-S, G" MLRS with an even greater range of destruction and bring down all beards in the area of ​​the Syrian-Turkish border according to information from at least these UAVs, or other systems. it turns out, we do not know how ... Why? There are no combat information and control systems ... Doesn't an attack UAV need such a system? Needed, but not! They forgot to do it. So why then shock UAVs without such a system. Maybe it's better to throw all your efforts into creating such a system, instead of bluntly cutting money? And you know that the task to create such a system dates back to 2000, and nothing has been done in 15 years. This is a breakthrough, this is an achievement of the military-industrial complex and the General Staff. And how much money has already been cut for this? And who will be responsible for the non-delivery of such systems to the Army by 2020? Even the concept of such a system has not been worked out! ..

      Payload mass a quarter of the take-off with a flight duration of 24 hours is not enough? !!

        It is necessary that at least 2 250 kilogram guided bombs fit + 4 ATGM Whirlwind.

      I assume that everything is done in accordance with the assignment of the MO. Different UAVs are needed for different purposes. And I think the heavy drummer is already sawing, like the average

      Dmitry, well, if everything were as simple as you say, then we could admire devices of a much more solid "caliber". So not everything is so simple ... What do you think? hi

    And I am delighted! And in the words of Maxim Gorky I give him a blessing:
    Over the gray plain of the sea, the wind collects clouds. Between the clouds and the sea the Petrel proudly roars, a black lightning similar.

    Either the wing of the wave touching, then an arrow soaring up to the clouds .......!

    The power plant is clearly imported, 24 hours, and 8 km, something turboprop, and of such sizes something not to hear to do

    Well, the first question to those who know whose engines are there, whose manufacture?
    I would be very glad if produced in our country.
    Well, according to the methods of application, I would like reconnaissance / target designation,
    communication, electronic warfare.
