Zala Aero ZALA 421-16

ZALA 421-16 - a special set on the basis of drone aircraft type, remote monitoring, with an average duration of the flight. The creation of this model was a revolutionary step in the development of Russian design and operation of systems with UAVs. ZALA 421-16 different implementation of a completely new and modern solutions, the use of which had a positive impact on all the indicators of the unit.

July 10 2009 of this UAV set a record duration of the flight, which was h 12. 21 min.

Create Zala 421-16 questioned the relevance of the use of UAVs for flight airfield equipment.

Purpose of the unmanned vehicle is to conduct surveillance in a wide range of weather conditions of the underlying surface (dry land, water and in complex terrain), discovery and retrieval of objects. Send and receive real-time thermal images and television area, works as a repeater, defines objects and coordinates surveillance, collecting, processing and storage of other information. The complex is equipped with the new software package VIZA, which greatly simplifies the interpreter.

The standard version includes a UAV SLR digital camera with a resolution of 10 megapixels and a video camera with a recording and video capture, mounted on a gyro-stabilized platform. In an optional embodiment, the apparatus is equipped with an IR camera. UAV is able to deliver medicines, weapons and cargo over distances up to 50 km up to 200 m. In case of failure of electronic devices is provided including a backup navigation system. The composition of the payload is planned to expand small-sized remote gas analyzer. Also in the list of tasks run complex can expand target designation and data relay.

Similar to the previously released models ZALA 421-08 and 421-04M ZALA, UAV ZALA 421-16 built on the aerodynamic configuration of "flying wing". The main competitor of the UAV drone considered "Aileron-10D." The development ZALA 421-16 much attention was paid to its low visibility. It is this need in such a complex, many defense and security structures of Russia. In particular, in its operating interest representatives MOE, the Ministry of Interior, Ministry of Defense and the Federal Security Service of the SS. The Border Guard Service reported that its tactical and technical characteristics of the unmanned ZALA 421-16 great for a variety of tasks on protection of the state border, in particular for an extended flight over long distances.
