The press service of JSC Concern VKO Almaz-Antey announced the start of production of a pilot batch of multifunctional light domestic-designed drones of increased strength and maneuverability. Currently, several types of UAVs have already been developed., after testing prototypes, serial production of drones will begin. After entering the series, the share of Russian components in the product will be up to 90%, emphasized in the concern.
All-Russian Research Institute of Radio Equipment, part of the group, completes work on the creation of a multi-profile domestic light unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), the production of which will be localized at the enterprises of the concern, RIA Novosti quotes the press service of the concern.
Drone management, flight assignment input, display from the camera is carried out using a laptop, smartphone or tablet, There is a first-person view mode. For autonomous flight outside the zone of communication with the operator, it is possible to preload the route.

UAV develops speed up to 120 km / h and is able to cover a distance of up to 20 kilometers at a maximum altitude of up to three kilometers and a distance from the control point of at least five kilometers. Thanks to the use of modern materials and additive technologies in production, the drone design is highly durable and lightweight.. High maneuverability of the drone is also provided by small dimensions - 250 mm x 250 mm x 100 mm. At the same time, the all-weather aircraft withstands high wind loads and low temperatures..
Serial production of UAVs is planned to begin next year after the completion of the program for localization of production at the enterprises of the concern. By this time, the developers will create their own flight controller with an identification function and original software., and also complete the development of equipment for data transmission over an encrypted control channel and video broadcasting. All software, which will be used in the Russian drone, developed by the company's specialists.
The press service of the Almaz-Antey concern reported, that in terms of its technical and flight characteristics, the Russian UAV is in many ways superior to foreign developments in a similar class of multifunctional unmanned aerial vehicles.
