Tongji Foamcore is a Chinese unmanned dual-use airplane developed by scientists from Tongji University.

The Tongji Foamcore unmanned aerial vehicle is a dual-use development that provides the capability for the application of this aircraft, both in civilian and military fields. In fact, the device is multifunctional, which is connected with the fact that this UAV can perform a wide range of different tasks, which can include aerial photography of the terrain, conducting reconnaissance, monitoring and patrol operations, etc. An important feature of the popularization of this drone is the fact that the device is very simple in terms of its production, in connection with which, its cost is low.

The Chinese multifunctional unmanned aerial vehicle of the Tongji Foamcore model was developed by aircraft manufacturers from Tongji University in an aircraft-type configuration, moreover, the design of the drone is more like a flying wing. In fact, the flight duration of this drone is short, and depends mainly on the ascending currents, since the drone does not have its own power plant, however, this factor is quite consistent with the tasks being performed and the goals being implemented. Due to the by no means large dimensions of this device, there are no problems with its transportation, however, a special installation is required to launch the UAV.

Own power plant at the Tongji Foamcore drona is missing, however, even in this case the maximum speed of its flight can reach 120 km / h, while the distance of missions performed is limited to a radius of 20 kilometers.
