Columba - Ukrainian tactical unmanned aerial vehicle for military use, designed by «Spai Tech».

The design of the unmanned aerial vehicle Columba, started by Ukrainian specialists in the field of aerospace systems in the 2000-ies. The new drone was intended exclusively for military use, and the device was very promising, because it could be used to carry out tasks related to reconnaissance, to be used for patrol and surveillance operations, to be used as a means of adjusting artillery fire and controlling military units. Nevertheless, a very important advantage of the Columba unmanned aerial vehicle is its small size, which allows the device to be unobtrusive for the enemy.

With a wingspan of 2 meters, the Columba unmanned aerial vehicle has a length of 84 centimeters, which, with a maximum take-off weight of 10 kilograms, allows the device to be launched using muscular force, or using a special catapult. Due to its compact dimensions, the Columba drone is very simple in terms of its operation, especially since the flight performance of this device is very high.

UAV Columba is equipped with a high-resolution electro-optical camera and an infrared camera that allows you to use the drone in virtually all visibility conditions. Moreover, the device can also be equipped with a thermal imaging camera and capable of detecting objects with thermal radiation, which is very promising.

The power plant Ukrainian UAV Columba represented electric brushless motor that allows the drone to reach a maximum speed of movement in 140 km \ h., At the maximum flight duration 135 minutes.

On UAV Columba today exists in two basic versions:

  • Columba MAV - The base case the drone;
  • Columba CR - Improved version with increased range and duration of the autonomous flight.
