Irkut Irkut-850 Multipurpose UAV
"Irkut-850" - this aviation complex of remote sensing, the purpose of which is to obtain a real-time three-dimensional, thermal imaging, television, radar, photographic image area, the processing of received files, and determining the coordinates at the request of the operator. Also, "Irkut-850» can be used to deliver small loads.
The system comprises two optionally piloted glider Stemme S-10VT, hired control station and maintenance facilities. Glider can be used in manned and unmanned versions. The transition from one mode to another does not require any additional measures. So he was named "optionally piloted aircraft" since it includes the control system, which allows flights unmanned.
Instruments by which transformed into a glider UAV mounted in the cab on the right panel of the pilot devices. Underwing containers capable of carrying various types of load that can be quickly replaced, namely, thermal imaging, and television system to the gyro-stabilized platform, automatic high-resolution digital camera, a laser system 3D-mapping. "Irkut-850" has a lot of 860 kg, unmanned flight duration of up to 12 hours. Range radio, which connects the aircraft from a ground control station is limited to 200 km.
Take-off and landing can be carried out at the minimum prepared sites. During 12 hours of flight glider collects data and real-time feeds them to the ground control point located within a radius of up to 200 km.
The main advantages of the complex is the high battery life, which does not require tools airfield support, and low life cycle cost and operation.
"Irkut-850" at the first demonstration in public was in demand. It was included in the security system at MAKS-2005. During the event, this UAV is flown on a daily basis under the leadership of the security forces.
On the concept of optional manned spacecraft turned its attention to the Austrian company Diamond Aircraft Industries GmbH. During MAKS-2005 between the Austrians and the Corporation "Irkut" I signed a contract on creation of a joint intention to pilot-unmanned complex, which should serve as a base plane DA42 Twin Star. This machine will be installed gyro stabilized optical monitoring system SON-112, whose purpose is to sensing the earth's surface in a variety of non-military purposes. Using the technology, embedded in the program "Irkut-850", should increase the versatility of the Austrian aircraft.
