Zala Aero ZALA 421-04M

2007 year was marked in the company Zala Aero completion of work on the creation of a revolutionary model of UAV ZALA 421-04M. The development was carried out for the first time outside the box, first engaged in the development of the payload, and then moved to the airframe. So it not quite turned the aircraft, and a high-quality flying payload infrared and fluorescent bands.

The composition of the payload:

  • The imager mounted on a gyro-stabilized platform.

  • Color Video with an overview of all the points of the lower hemisphere, stabilized in two axes, with a smooth change of the viewing angle.

This UAV was the first product of the company, which manages the aircraft payload. UAV flight duration of up to 2 hours payload weight - up to 1 kg. The standard version includes a complete set of equipment of the UAV in two axes gyro-stabilized camera with a digital image stabilizer and an overview of all the points of the lower hemisphere. Also optional on the machine set-stabilized platform with the camera (10 megapixels) or thermal imager. On the set of tests has shown to be effective for the transfer of the practical results at a distance of 50 km in real time.

Company Zala Aero supplies complexes with UAVs ZALA 421-04M to the needs of the Border Service of Russia.

The contract stipulates the implementation of supply drones equipped with interchangeable payload options: color camera, the camera and the thermal imager with an overview of the whole space of the lower hemisphere. In the interests of the Border Service of the UAV will be used for covert surveillance and special operations at any time.

The launch takes place by means of a pneumatic or elastic catapult and does not require a runway equipped aerodrome equipment.

In 2008, the complex ZALA 421-04M successfully completed a program of state tests and managed to establish itself with a good hand in the PS of the FSB and the Interior Ministry of Russia.

Purpose Complex ZALA 421-04M is to monitor land surface (including the surface of the water and difficult terrain) in simple and adverse weather conditions, search and identify objects. It provides transmit and receive data in real time and scale and television thermal imaging areas, collection, identification, preservation and subsequent treatment of other information.

All delivered systems have integrated ZANET, which translates telemetry and visual information to remote terminals with any drone ZALA and ensures the transfer of control from one NSO to another. All current and compatible with ZANET program displayed on a single map action, thus creating a centralized management. Especially actually use the system ZANET during multiple UAVs of different departments to solve common problems in one region. Border Service, the Interior Ministry and other security structures have already expressed interest in the testing and deployment of this technology within their departments.

In 2009, the company has upgraded UAV ZALA 421-12. The changes affected the airframe and the layout of indoor units. As part of the new payload unit equipped with a color digital camera, and make room for the installation of a thermal imager or camcorder. Thus, to obtain high-quality color photos and video images is sufficient that one flight, which significantly saves time and resource drone.
