Manta. Specifications. A photo.
Manta - American multi-purpose tactical unmanned aerial vehicle developed by corporation "Advanced Research Inc.".
US unmanned aerial vehicle Manta perfectly combines versatility, compactness and low cost, making this aircraft enjoys quite popular not only in the US but also in other countries. In fact, the unmanned aerial vehicle may be used for reconnaissance, patrol and surveillance of the flight, used to perform the tasks associated with aerial photography, aerial photography and monitoring of terrain, and applies it to a civil, and military sphere.
Due to its compact design and the length of the unmanned aerial vehicle Manta is only 1 90 meter centimeters, with a wingspan in meters 2 10 cm, the device has a very good aerodynamic component, which favorably affects the maneuverability and controllability of air tools. However, the device has a sufficiently large weight - empty weight of the aircraft is 20,4 kilos, enabling the launch of a UAV by using a special catapult or acceleration on the runway.
As a means of monitoring and surveillance, unmanned air vehicle on two types of cameras used Manta - electro-optical high-resolution camera and an infrared camera that allows the operation of the drone in the day, yet at night.
The power plant is represented by one UAV two-cylinder piston engine, which allows the device to accelerate to a maximum speed of flight in 200 km \ h., At the same time, the maximum duration of stay in the autonomous air is 9 hours, which is quite effective.
