Rocket plant “Progress” presented a UAV for adjusting artillery fire

The Progress rocket and space complex presented the concept of a promising unmanned aerial vehicle for adjusting artillery fire.

An aircraft-type drone does not depend on satellite navigation systems; it navigates the terrain using machine vision. The device weighs only 28 kg, its cruising speed is 120 km/h. It is launched from a catapult and lands with a parachute. The UAV can stay in the air for 16 hours, transmitting data at a distance of up to 120 km.

“Photon” is planned to be equipped with a video camera, a thermal imager and an automatic target tracking module. In addition to adjusting artillery and aviation fire, the drone can control the area and work as a repeater.

Together with the drone, the Progress RCC will present models of the main products of the enterprise, Soyuz 2, Soyuz 2.1v launch vehicles and the promising two-stage Soyuz 5 at the exhibition.
