    Russia unveils cutting-edge innovation for its latest Orion reconnaissance drones

    The new system allows to control several Orion reconnaissance drones at a time

    KUBINKA /Moscow Region/, August 25. /TASS/. A single console will suffice to control several Orion reconnaissance drones at a time, CEO of the Kronshtadt Group (the drone’s design firm) Sergei Bogatikov told TASS at the Army 2021 international military-technical forum on Wednesday.

    "By now, the Orion system has the possibility to control several drones at a time from a single panel. This, of course, is not a swarm, this simply means fulfilling certain tasks," the chief executive explained.

    The use of a swarm of drones has good prospects for addressing various tasks, including suppressing and breaching multi-layered air defenses, he pointed out.

    "The Orion is designed to address somewhat different tasks, although it can be controlled in a group," the chief executive specified.

    The Orion is a medium-altitude, long-duration unmanned aerial system with a maximum take-off weight of 1 tonne and a maximum payload weight of 200 kg. Russia is currently offering the drone for export as an air reconnaissance system. In the meantime, the nation’s troops are getting the strike version of the Orion drones.

    The Army 2021 international military-technical forum is running at the Patriot Congress and Exhibition Center outside Moscow on August 22-28.

    Don´t think so (the discontinued part). Korsar is a light drone that can be launched by a truck mounted catapult. Anywhere. Orion and Forpost need a runway.

    Korsar is a totally different weight class and mode of operation compared to Orion. Though they overlap significantly, the catapult launch capability plus parachute landing makes it very useful for groups like artillery or others who want better on demand recon and even attacking targets of opportunity compared to currently used Orlans and Zalas. It's an additional capability and weight class that Russia actually currently doesn't possess in inventory.

    Drone attack helicopters will soon enter service for the first time. 

    Attack helicopter unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) developed by the Strela Research and Production Association (part of Kronstadt )will be delivered to the Russian Armed Forces in the near future. This was announced to journalists at the Army-2021 forum by Deputy Defense Minister Alexey Krivoruchko.

    According to him, within the framework of the agreements concluded, it is planned to receive light unmanned helicopters in shock performance soon. In addition, the troops will receive heavy attack unmanned vehicles of the helicopter type "Platforma".

    That is interesting because that cruise missile like weapon on the right at the bottom of the above post is the Kh-50 and it was supposed to be a cruise missile for tactical aircraft and lighter bombers... it seems here to be a weapon for drones too...

    It was supposed to be a 1,500km range subsonic stealthy cruise missile that could be carried internally in numbers in stealth aircraft and current bombers for conventional operations... sort of a light cheap precision cruise missile...

    Even if they are continued, they will have hard time entering the market.

    Russia is putting lot of money on Orion, Altius, S-70 and Grom and the others presented officially.

    They are drawings of weapons we have already seen photos posted on this forum of, and the one on the right had X-50 (Kh-50) written on its side...

    from this thread:

    https://www.russiadefence.net/t8601p75-army-2021-military-technical-forum?highlight=2021

    on page 4:

    called a modular gliding bomb (rather than the original designation Kh-50 as being a cruise missile)

    UAVs in Russian Armed Forces: News #2 - Page 22 113410

    and the other weapon described as Kh-MD-E

    UAVs in Russian Armed Forces: News #2 - Page 22 210910

    The Kh-50 used to be called Kh-SD or something and was intended for internal carriage on the Tu-22M3 and also to be carried by Su-34 and Su-35 aircraft too as a 1.5 ton subsonic 2,000km range guided cruise missile...
    looks now like it is a gliding bomb...

    The Kh-50(cruise missile) will have a different name.like Avangard was expected to be the Rubzeh RS-26, trying to make DIA job less easy.

    The designations don't change... the Izd or project numbers and the Kh numbers don't change, so clearly someone got this wrong.

    The Kronshtadt company told about export contracts for attack drones. 

    The Kronstadt company has signed export contracts for the supply of attack drones to countries of the far and near abroad, deliveries will begin next year, the press service of the enterprise reported on Tuesday.

    Earlier, Kronstadt announced the interest of 20 countries in the procurement of Orion-E reconnaissance and strike drones. This is the first public statement about contracts for the export of Russian combat drones. 

    "The first few UAV complexes will be ready for shipment to foreign customers in 2022. The drones are made according to a modular scheme with an open architecture and can, at the request of customers, change the composition of equipment, target load and ground components, depending on the application conditions and tasks. These export samples will also be equipped with satellite data transmission equipment" – the company's CEO Sergey Bogatikov is quoted in the message.

    For the production of the first export machines at the serial plant in Dubna, components have been ordered from suppliers of the cooperation, they will be delivered to the enterprise in November to start assembly, the top manager added.

    To fulfill this contract, Kronstadt took a loan of 3 billion rubles from Promsvyazbank for two years.

    The first hybrid drone ZALA Aero made a flight of one thousand kilometers

    MOSCOW, September 10. / TASS /. The first Russian UAV with a hybrid power plant ZALA 421-16E5G, developed by the Russian company ZALA Aero (part of the Kalashnikov group of companies), flew over 1,000 km from Izhevsk to Yoshkar-Ola and back. This was reported to reporters on Friday in the press service of ZALA Aero.

    "During the flight on the route Izhevsk - Yoshkar-Ola - Izhevsk, which was more than 12 hours, the ZALA 421-16E5G hybrid drone covered a distance of more than 1,130 km. The implementation of such a system, where the operators of the complex are located at a distance of up to 500 km from the launch site, reduces the consumption of the apparatus's resources, minimizes the human factor and optimizes the staff of operating units, "the press was informed -service.

    As noted in ZALA Aero, the latest developments of the company in the field of navigation and intelligent information processing were tested during the flight. "In particular, [was used] a new on-board visual navigation system. The system does not depend on satellite navigation and is implemented in a closed control loop, which allows the aircraft to fly in complete radio silence, and also provides multi-level protection against electronic warfare," they said in the press service.

    During the flight, the onboard intelligent processing system AIVI was also used. "The AIVI system in passive mode provides automatic detection and recognition of objects from several sources, with visibility of the entire lower hemisphere, which allows you to receive up-to-date information about the number and location of objects, changes in the situation right during the flight," added ZALA Aero.
