Irkut Irkut-10 Multipurpose UAV

"Irkut-10" is an airborne remote sensing complex that performs tasks on round-the-clock monitoring in a wide range of weather conditions. The device provides reception and transmission to the ground in real time of photographic, thermal imaging and television images of the terrain. Also with its help it is possible to determine the coordinates of ground objects, to collect, store and complex processing of video information. The complex includes two unmanned aerial vehicles, as well as ground facilities that provide control and maintenance of UAVs.

The maximum time of flight of the aircraft up to 2 hours in real time it transmits information from the instruments of the payload on the control point located on the ground within a radius of up to 70 km.

In order to prepare the UAV for launch: check for faults, enter the flight program and lead to a state of full readiness home need to 15 minutes.

Start drone carried out from a mobile catapult, landing can be made on the aerodrome facilities unequipped ground platforms using a parachute.

A large proportion of drone designs made of composite materials that provide high strength at low weight and to the effects of various environmental factors of sustainability of the environment.

The complex can be used for various purposes with the ability to complete its various payloads depending on the task, and it is characterized by a low life-cycle costs and maintenance.

In 2009, the investigative committee of the Prosecutor’s Office of the Russian Federation purchased Irkut-10 UAVs for a total of 100 thousand dollars.
