The aerial complex offered by us today is able to cope with almost any task in the field of aerial operations thanks to the availability of flexible tuning of its aerodynamic scheme.
See, for example,
Nevertheless, any perfection has a limit. Therefore, we are betting on six main areas of aviation tasks in our work, where the transformable unmanned vehicles can be used and which are not mastered to date:
Investigation of the aerodynamic shapes of unmanned vehicles intended for operation under different conditions.
Terrain aerial photography today seems to be the most promising and demanded area where unmanned aerial systems can and should be used. These operations can be both the main goal and one of the stages in complex studies of various purposes. For example, the modern technology available on board our UAV allows not only getting photographs of land from a bird’s eye view, but also carrying out the real-time terrain scanning and building its three-dimensional model.
Those are necessary when it comes to preliminary exploration of the terrain, for example, when planning search operations or large-scale ground operations in difficult and dangerous areas.
We recommend using the following variants of the transformable aircraft layout during aerial photography of the earth surface:
|Tailless airplane||Motor glider|

Search and rescue in extreme conditions today is an area almost undeveloped for unmanned aviation. There are many reasons for such situation, but the main is the set of requirements that experts impose to the aircraft itself and specifically to its aerodynamic qualities. For example, a UAV must be able to operate in two modes simultaneously – horizontal flight, like an airplane, and vertical, like a helicopter or a quadcopter – with the possibility of hovering over the target. In addition, the altitude ceiling of such aircrafts is considered critical – it should be no less than 10 000 meters. In addition, the UAV must be stable in conditions of large-scale turbulence, strong anabatic and fall winds, should be capable of operating in presence of static electricity.
Our development is the first one in the UAV market, which meets almost all these requirements, and does even have a development reserve for several years ahead by some parameters.

The same monotonous operation of measuring the distribution of atmospheric parameters is performed every day, four times a day, in most countries of the world. Expendable uncontrolled balloon probes are used. This procedure is very costly as long as the cost of the probe is 200-250 $, plus about the same amount is spent on payments for work and equipment.
The presence of such a number of unguided aircrafts within the transport and passenger aviation flight levels is a rather serious threat, especially where air traffic is intense. Accidents in the air for this reason precisely are unfortunately not something new. For example, in 1970, AN-24B, board number 47751, collided with a ball-probe, 45 people died. In 2017, there was a collision of Boeing 757-200 of Delta airlines, flight 8935, with an unknown object.

We propose to replace uncontrolled and bulky balloons with compact, intelligent aircrafts. The use of unmanned systems will not only reduce such risks significantly, but also improve the very technology of aerological observations.
Due to the fact that UAVs are non-expendable and due to the variability of their configurations, the cost of research is decreasing at times; In addition, the works become much more operational – the flight lasts no more than half an hour. Plus, UAV measurements are much more accurate, since the equipment can start working and analyzing the situation from the moment of take-off of the aircraft and till the moment of its landing.
Flight trajectory when obtaining a section of tropospheric parameters up to heights of 10-13 thousand meters.
We recommend using the following layouts of transformable aircraft during aerological research.

The processing of clouds can not be called a perfect technology nowadays. And that is in many respects precisely because of the means used in such operations. These are mostly meteorological rockets (for example, “Alazan”) or specially re-equipped civilian aircrafts. Both types are not precise enough and effective, but extremely expensive to use.
The implementation of unmanned aerial vehicles in this sphere is truly capable of producing a technological revolution. Our machines are able to fly directly into the cloud using the trajectory determined on-the-fly from the ground at a constant flight level (Alt Hold flight mode). This improves the accuracy and efficiency of meteorological work and research greatly, and most importantly – reduces their cost in dozens, if not hundreds of times.
We propose to use such layout variants as a tailless airplane and / or an X-wing airplane with silver-iodide aerosol cartridges placed on their external mount in carrying out these operations.

Strictly aerial operations are not all that our UAVs are capable of. We can offer a variety of options for using them to carry out integrated studies, where both air and land and water resources are involved. For example, monitoring of water bodies and shorelines. In this case, our vehicles can be used to determine the actual state of the shoreline and the recommended monitoring boundaries (where there is no “clutter” of the reservoir), and ground and water surface vehicles, for example, unmanned floating crafts – to monitor the condition of the reservoir itself.

The study of the aerodynamic shape of unmanned vehicles designed for operation under various conditions is intended to
For example, in order to build the dependence of the power consumption on the flight speed, which allows revealing minimum, cruising, maximum speed and the flight time.
