Vega AIST reconnaissance UAV
Layout UAVs "Stork" was first presented to the public at the exhibition "Unmanned Multipurpose Vehicle Systems for Energy-2007». The development of UAV engaged Radio Engineering Corporation "Vega". prototype development took in the Moscow Research Institute "Pendant".
"Unmanned aerial vehicle" Stork "can be attributed to the third generation of UAVs, it is distinguished by new qualities. Thus, it will become part of the digital complex ", - said the UAV CEO Research Institute" Pendant "the Foreign Economic Relations and testing of new equipment Igor Shkliar.
UAV is equipped with two piston engines, it has a normal aerodynamic configuration with a V-shaped tail and a weak low-wing sweep. Chassis folding, tricycle. The project provided for the UAV Research Institute "Pendant" by NKF "Tekhnoavia".
In the civil version the main purpose of the complex is in the air monitoring of pipelines, located on the ground in some places gas and oil production, transmission lines, searching for leaks ground and underground pipelines, water pollution sites and oil soil, places piping irrigation, monitoring the state of power transmission lines and pipelines in severe weather conditions, the performance of other tasks. Observation equipment can consist of opto-electronic devices SON-100 with color and infrared channels and side-scan radar systems with a built-in removable module, information and command radio, flight recorder data, and other equipment.
The first prototype flight model of UAV "Stork" was constructed in the early 2009 at the factory "Progress" in Samara.
Flight tests were conducted in the fall of that year.
Weight drone "stork" is about 500 kg. It was created by the normal aerodynamic scheme with a V-shaped tail and a weak low-wing sweep. Non-metallic materials are widely used in construction. Landing and take-off taking place on an aircraft type, folding chassis, tricycle. The power plant is represented by two piston engines. Aircraft performance characteristics and possible applications of UAVs "Stork" is much wider and better than the previous model - UAV "Bee-1".
On the UAV can perform its intended task with various sensors monitoring and payload. As the manufacture of basic elements occurs gradual build-up of the complex. According to the information and command radio UHF and microwave frequencies of waves there is a transfer service, and video to the ground station in real time. On the same channel transmitted command from the control point on the observation equipment and mechanisms responsible for the flight of the UAV. To increase the communication distance between the ground command post and the UAV can be used drone relay - the same device "Stork" in design, equipped with a relay apparatus. Optoelectronic dual-channel instrument SON-100, attached to the gyro-stabilized platform, allows you to use complex in any weather and any time of day. Also, the use of drones in adverse weather conditions is possible thanks to on-board radar installed side-view.
Depending on the tasks "Stork" and can be equipped with video cameras, repeaters, impact weapons complex, radio directors etc. Thus, the weight of the UAV will be up to 500 kg. Range UAV "Stork" is more than 500 km.
