Arrow UAV

Robotic complex "Strela" performs the task of air target and is designed to address these practical problems:

  1. Evaluation of actual performance characteristics of radar air defense system (ARPK): precision tracking of targets in range, speed and angular coordinates, the detection range of targets with different efficiency of the reflecting surface (EOC).
  2. Circling SAM for the purpose of testing and crew training with different types of goals.
  3. Shooting SAM tests.
  4. Evaluation of the accuracy and binding orientation of radar air defense system, which significantly affect the efficiency of targeting.
  5. Evaluation reflective characteristics of aircraft in the wavelength range ARKP.
  6. Tee "Arrow" is the best analogue of the real objectives of the entire list of relevant parameters for radar-fire and to determine the speed, range, GO radar seekers;
  7. Operation VM "Arrow" provides a strong decrease in cash costs for the solution of all these problems, because there is no need to spend money on expensive flights of aircraft in real time. In addition, significantly reduced labor intensity and complexity of flight experiments.


"Arrow", as an air target, is capable of simulating air attack weapons like UAV, subsonic aircraft and cruise missiles during combat calculations, rifle and overflight tests of all modifications of the S-125 SAM with target simulation for the 5X23 PORGSN, the 5N62 RPG and the ZUR B radio interceptor -860. Various modifications of the UAV equipment provide the solution of the same tasks for different types of anti-aircraft missile systems and NATO-Russia air-launched missile systems. A reliable and promising way to simulate the image intensifier of aerial targets for a low-visibility carrier is the radar active response with the required repeater signal level of the ARCS REF.

"Arrow" can simulate EOC typical air targets such as: cruise missiles "air-surface" with a glider-type Stealth with the EOC and miniature reconnaissance drones, armed cruise missiles without technology Stealth, shock UAV KR antenna systems ARGSN, teaching and training aircraft with the EOC; fighter aircraft, tactical light, multi-purpose fighter aircraft and attack aircraft with the EOC; military transport and AWACS aircraft refuellers.

Land management tools ensure the efficiency changes in the flight task, receiving and displaying external trajectory and telemetry data of the target air. Ground Handling consists of ground automated control systems and complex process equipment. All these funds are necessary to carry out verification work on the health of the systems on board and its preparation for launch or re-use.

The main modes of operation: a dive, pitch up, climb, take-off, horizontal flight, the emergency parachute landing, flying at low altitude, turn, decrease.

Aerial target can be reused. Methods for flight operations: radiokorrektiruemy and offline. The entire complex consists of a standard aircraft "Arrow" and radar simulator for reflections "RIP."
