Alenia Aermacchi Sky-Y a photo

The unmanned aerial vehicle Alenia Aermacchi Sky-Y began to be designed by Italian specialists and scientists in the field of aerospace engineering and aircraft construction in the middle of the 2000-ies. Initially, it was assumed that the design of the drone would be based in part on the Alenia Aermacchi Sky-X unmanned aerial model, but ultimately it was decided to develop a radically new design for the drone. It should be noted that the unmanned aircraft Alenia Aermacchi Sky-Y has a rather narrow scope of its purpose, in particular, the device is designed for operation for purely research purposes, in particular, it is necessary to approbate new control and navigation systems, etc.

Model Italian multipurpose unmanned aircraft Alenia Aermacchi Sky-Y has a fairly large dimensions, in particular, for this device is 9 meters 72 cm, while the scope of the UAV wings of 9 meters 94 cm, at the height of construction in 1 meter 86 centimeters. However, this factor does not substantially affect the flight device as drone has excellent aerodynamic shape largely reducing drag during flight.

The Alenia Aermacchi Sky-Y unmanned aerial vehicle is equipped with a power plant consisting of one DieselJet FIAT 1.9 JTD turbo diesel engine, which, having four working cylinders and a volume of 1,9 liters, can develop thrust in the 170 HP. The Alenia Aermacchi Sky-Y UAV can develop a fairly high speed of its flight, which is able to reach the figure in 320 km / h. (maximum value), while the maximum range of a drone is limited to 500 kilometers.

UAV Alenia Aermacchi Sky-Y is equipped with a high-resolution electro-optical camera and multi-spectral and thermal cameras, ensuring the implementation of a number of special tasks.
