UAV "Eleron-7" with an updated optical module will be presented at the "Army-2019"
The designers were able to modify the daily module payload UAV. Instead of 10x optical zoom, it now provides 30x. In this case, the overall dimensions of the apparatus in the piling remained the same.
The chief designer of Enix, Sergei Pobezhimov, stressed that the changes actually lifted Eleron-7 to a new level: "Now the characteristics of the optical part of Eleron are similar to those of heavier vehicles, take-off weight of 10-15 kg."
Peter Syuhurov, advisor to the director of the scientific and technical center of PJSC KMZ, honorary aircraft manufacturer of Russia, told Mil.Press Military that an increase in the multiplicity of optics will not lead to a loss of quality of the image received by the operator.
“The UAV, of course, is light. With a high magnification, you can expect image shaking. The designers, I think, expected it and took it into account. There is certainly gyrostabilization on Aileron. Plus, the image can be improved programmatically,” the expert concluded.
Also, Pyotr Sygurov added that UAVs of such a class as "Eleron" are useful if the enemy uses means of disguise.
“A typical target is a camouflaged tank. Once it is covered with insulating cloth, it becomes invisible in the IR range. It is covered with a conventional mask network - it becomes unobtrusive in the visible range. within the framework of the “Treaty on Open Skies". This problem can be solved only by such "Aileron" that can go at the height of the terrain. And from a height of 50-100 meters you can distinguish the same tank in size, "said Professor Pyotr Sygurov.
Sergey Pobezhimov also clarified that regardless of the installed modules, a camera is mounted on the drone, thanks to which the device can autonomously carry out aerial photography of the surface.
In addition to the payload in the UAV, the hardware of the tracking machine was reworked and the power plant was replaced - now in Eleron it is of domestic production.
Looks very good, will have to see the specs.
This UAV was presented at army-2018, I never heard of that, only the eleron 3, anyway, there is a link with more picture s and information about him
