At the last in France Eurosatory 2012 was announced the intention of the Federal Border Service of Russia to adopt unmanned Skeldar V-200 produced in Sweden with a gyro-stabilized platform with American electro-optical equipment. One use of helicopters, drones can security in 2014 during the Olympic Games in the city of Sochi.
Skeldar V-200 — Development of the Swedish group «Saab», is a medium-range UAV helicopter type. Due to implementation of the UAV is provided a vertical takeoff and landing type. Designed to perform tasks of monitoring, review, identification for military and civilian needs, both on land and at sea. Swedish drones can be launched from surface ships, for surveillance and reconnaissance in real time. According to the developers, «Skeldar V-200″ — it is economically successful candidacy ordinary helicopters, which, moreover, has the smallest mass-size properties.
Development «Skeldar V-200″ are engaged in since 2004. Layout entitled «Skeldar 5 ROS» made the first flight in late spring 2006. Create drones had been scheduled for 2008. United States, according applets «ISR», planned to provide destroyers new UAV with vertical take off and landing. Marine drone version provides all the powers of observation and intelligence, namely, to assess the implementation of harm combat weapons. Additional capacity: logistics ship to ship and delivery of disk imaging in bad weather criteria on a ship or on land.
UAV Swedish designers have made on the basis of drone «APID 55» development «CybAero». «Skeldar V-200″ is built of carbon fiber, titanium and aluminum and has a small-sized assembly with the possibility of various equipment payload. Internal equipment drone can just get through a special panel. Possibility of vertical take-off and landing is not asking for any abilities GDP. UAVs are used in the revolutionary technology of the rotor. Ball screw the quick implementation and during transportation or maintenance is stored separately from the UAV. Flying characteristics similar to ordinary helicopters — UAV can hover in one point, flying at different speeds in any direction.
This version Skeldar drone can carry double the payload, ie, more than 40 kg. UAV is desired load depending on the requirements of the tasks. The open architecture of the suspension of the payload enables integration on «Skeldar V-200″ different current and future surveillance and reconnaissance equipment.
The standard configuration of the payload:
— EO / infrared camera on gimbals;
— laser illumination;
— laser rangefinder;
— Radar SAR;
— the system reasoned testimony moving ground targets;
— electronic warfare system;
— the hook.
UAV control system can be integrated into the command and control ship or control ground vehicles. It comes one or more console control panels consisting of a monitor display of disk imaging and computer equipment.
Management «Skeldar V-200″ not counting the drone operator can produce 1-2 more separate statements. Methods used to control the «Point-and-Fly» and «Point-and-See». The operator can set the route of flight in which the UAV will fly autonomously or make flights from one designated point to another. Drone collects disk imaging in real time and immediately enters the information collected on the console panel and the terminal on the control system. For autonomous flight on board navigational equipment was installed which comes in a radar altimeter, air data collection system, the receivers (main and reserve) GPS. For UHF communications channels used L, C and S-band.
UAV Propulsion — 2-cylinder, 2-stroke, in-line engine with liquid cooling of the internal combustion engine. Power — 55 hp, 6000 rev / min. ICE is provided an electrical ignition system and the electrical system of fuel injection.
The main properties:
— length of 4 meters;
— rotor — 4.7 meters;
— take-off weight — 200 pounds;
— desired load — 40 kg;
— flight speed of 130 km / h;
— while in the air up to 300 minutes;
— acts radius — 100 km;
— 4.5 kilometer altitude ceiling.
Due to the acquisition of drone intrigued by the Russian side, the Swedish designers may submit refreshed «Skeldar V-200″ at the Metropolitan exhibition means to ensure the security of the country in October 2012.
