Unmanned aerial system
The Ciconia unmanned aerial system is a fully automatic UAV system suitable for joint military, industrial and commercial missions. The main advantage of the system is advanced inertial navigation, which allows to work in harsh conditions and in the absence of GPS. The system can be equipped with EO and IR payloads.
Unmanned aerial system "Ciconia" is autonomous distance-controlled UAV for different tasks of the aerial reconnaissance, patrolling, mapping of the area with the possibility of actual information transfer in the real-time mode.
In this complex is realized the conception of automatized control during all flight, what makes the job of operator much easier and allows focusing attention on the analysis of information what comes from the UAV.
UAV control is carried out through cryped digital radio channel, which allows receiving telemetry data over all period of the flight. Operator can trace on the satellite maps location of UAV, correct the route, operate with a payload and give other commands to UAV. Even in the case of signal suppression, the UAV is able to continue the autonomy flight, return and make landing in the programmed point.
UAV have special anti-electronic warfare system, which recognize intentional interference environment (GPS blocking/spoofing) and automatically switch to SINS/AHRS inertial mode.
To make it impossible to determine the place of takeoff UAV can takeoff in radio silence mode. The operator can switch on and off video transmission at any time.
UAV have a great wind resist parameters and can be used up to 20 m/s wind speed. Flight radius 55 km (total route distance 100km), endurance time 1,5-3,5 hours (depends from kit), on condition: air temperature -200С to +550С, wind speed to 12 m/s.
DeViRo flight control center software makes it easy to plan and simulate mapping mission. Mission planning takes place in a visual mode, the software will warn if exceeded the maximum length of the route. Flight control center provides the tools for quick access to the payload control functions, mission correction, emergency options. During the flight, the operator receives detailed information about the UAV and about the environment.
