BQM-1BR - Brazilian Multi-Purpose UAV that is used as a target in a test of new types of weapons, as well as the drone used for testing new control systems of unmanned aircraft.




The BQM-1BR unmanned aerial vehicle is an exclusively military development created with the direct leadership of the Brazilian Armed Forces. The main reason for the creation of this project was the urgent need to use a large number of devices capable of moving in space with remote control, and if initially the BQM-1BR UAV was positioned exclusively as a drone-target, then later, by some improvement of the design of the unmanned aircraft, Here modern control systems, which provided the possibility of testing this drone while developing other drones.

BQM-1BR UAV equipped with a jet engine provides the ability to overclock up to speed in 530 km \ h., At the same time, the maximum range of the drone flight 450 kilometers, which is perfectly suited for testing advanced anti-aircraft systems and weapons.


Drone BQM-1BR


The unmanned aerial vehicle BQM-1BR has an excellent aerodynamic shape, which, in fact, provides the structure of the drone with the ability to accelerate to high speeds, while the length of the UAV fuselage is 3,89 m, and the wingspan is 3,38 m, which is quite sufficient to capture the drone by automatic missile systems.

Drone can be moved at an altitude of up to 6,5 kilometers, however, due to lack of opportunities surveillance camera installation, as well as the impossibility of its use because of the extremely high speed of flight, for such purposes UAV model BQM-1BR not apply.
