NRIAM is a Chinese unmanned aerial vehicle developed for civilian use by the Agricultural Machinery Research Institute of Nanjing City.

The development and design of the NRIAM unmanned aerial vehicle was started by Chinese aircraft builders in 2011 year, and despite the fact that the work on the project took two years, the device itself is very limited in terms of its functionality, in particular, the air means is intended for use only In the agricultural sphere, and can be used to perform tasks related to the processing of agricultural land, the implementation of observation, patrol and monitoring flights.

In its first flight tests, the NRIAM unmanned aerial vehicle was subjected to 2013 in XNUMX, and in view of the fact that there were no deviations from the indicators established by the developers, the project of the drone was launched into series production, which continues to this day.

The unmanned aerial vehicle is designed by Chinese aircraft builders in a helicopter-type configuration, which allows the drone to be used even in unprepared terrain, besides, due to the compact dimensions of the fuselage, the transportation of the aircraft is not associated with any problems.

An unmanned air vehicle is equipped with one piston internal combustion engine running on gasoline, however, the cruising speed of this aircraft does not exceed 30 km / h, while the effective range of missions is limited to a distance of 5 kilometers.
