Soim 1 - Romanian military drone aircraft.

UAV Soim 1 Romanian aircraft manufacturers began to be developed in the last century for specifically military purposes. Given the fact that during the design of the drone in most European countries and the states conducted a so-called arms race, the armed forces of Romania needed in a facility capable of performing the role of aerial targets used for the testing of new types of weapons, including as a means of air and missile defense, as and conventional automatic firearms.

UAV model Soim 1 has a relatively compact design - the size of the projected unit has been selected in such a way that the radar ground station can carry out the detection of the flying target and capture it, moreover, easy UAV provided device is also very low cost of production, which led to promotion of a high level of the drone.

At its core, an unmanned aerial vehicle is a radio-controlled plane, only instead of a manual control panel, a special navigation station. What makes the device more effective control, and allows him to carry out flights to of extended distances.

As a rule, any emergency landing means the device is not equipped because of the simplicity of the UAV design, but if for some reason, after being hit or misses in the missile drone or rifle shells, the device remains in the relative integrity of unmanned aerial machine to make a landing on the ground.

Because the drone Soim 1 has a very narrow scope of its application, any monitoring devices that are not equipped with UAVs.

As the power plant at the unmanned aircraft Soim 1 model uses small low-powered piston engine capable to disperse the drone to a top speed of 150 km \ h.
