CH-1 - Chinese military multipurpose unmanned aerial vehicle developed by the corporation «China Aerospace Science Corporation».

The development and design of the unmanned aircraft of the CH-1 model was carried out by Chinese experts in the field of aircraft construction and the creation of unmanned systems especially for military applications, although the actual actual functions of this drone were very severely limited. The unmanned aerial vehicle of this model is intended for reconnaissance and patrol-observation flights, although in fact, the drone can also be used for tasks related to aerial photography and aerial surveying.

Chinese military drone has a fairly standard for this type of aircraft size, in particular, this device has a fuselage length equal to 3 75 centimeters meters, with a wingspan of constituting 4 40 meters centimeters. Own weight of the drone is very low, in particular, the device weighs only 40 kg, however, to provide start-up with virtually any terrain, it uses a special type of accelerating the installation of the rail.

The main means of surveillance, unmanned device used electro-optical high-resolution camera, infrared camera, thermal camera and laser rangefinder, which in some cases allows the drone is used as a means of correction of artillery fire.

Powerplant UAV CH-1 represented by one piston engine, which allows the drone to accelerate to a maximum speed of flight in 150 km \ h.
