PURPOSE AND SCOPE
The unmanned complex M - 57 "Svitanok" is intended for video surveillance and photography of linear and plane objects from the air. Potential users of the complex are power and special structures of Ukraine.
MAIN ADVANTAGES OF THE DEVELOPMENT
The advantages of BPS - M - 57 are low material capacity, small optical, acoustic and radar sensitivity. The BPS has also a high level of maintenance in the field conditions and can be exploited in combat situations.
The Ukrainian market has a tentative capacity for the M - 57 within 50 - 100 complexes, some of which may be consumed by civilian airlines, and part by special services.
MAIN CHARACTERISTIC, THE IDEA OF DEVELOPMENT
The M - 57 "Svitanok" is unmanned aerial vehicle (BPS) of large elongation "flying wing" scheme equipped with a color video camera and digital transmitter.
There are basic technical characteristics of the BPS: maximum take - off weight - up to 10 kg; weight of target load - up to 2 kg; flight duration - up to 180 minutes with application lithium polymer batteries; maximum flight speed is 120 km / h; maximum flight altitude - up to 3000 m; type of control system - semi - automatic / automatic; start - with hands using rubber shock absorber; landing - carnivorous; range of action - up to 70 km.
STATUS OF READINESS OF THE DEVELOPMENT
Manufactured prototype passes factory tests.
