According to the CCTV military report on August 5, the domestic high-altitude UAV “pterosaur-10” has been brilliant recently. In China’s first large UAV typhoon comprehensive observation test, the aircraft was equipped with observation equipment. After taking off from the airport, it gradually rose to the altitude of 10000 meters. With the help of millimeter wave radar, it carried out CT type “scanning” on the peripheral cloud system of typhoon senlak, which was recently raging recently.
even though there are many influencing factors such as airflow and weather, a group of relevant observation data are still transmitted to the ground command system in real time. The “pterosaur-10” UAV also showed good operation status, and the relevant data were accurately obtained, which showed that the test was a complete success and filled in the blank of relevant observation field. The results are very gratifying.
the domestic “pterosaur-10” high altitude UAV used in this test has the characteristics of high altitude, high speed and long endurance time, and can perform many tasks such as meteorological detection, image reconnaissance and electronic jamming. It can be called a dual-purpose all-around fighter.
the “pterosaur-10” high altitude UAV is equipped with two dual turbofan engines. The maximum take-off weight is more than 3.2 tons, the cruise altitude is more than 12500 meters, the range is more than 4000 kilometers, the cruise speed can exceed 500 kilometers per hour, and the external load can reach 400 kg.
every time a typhoon passes through and lands, it will bring immeasurable losses to people and property. The direct economic loss caused by each typhoon is as high as 29.5 billion yuan, which is shocking. The success of the “pterosaur-10” high altitude UAV weather detection test will improve the accuracy of forecasting typhoon track and intensity, so as not to be “caught off guard” against typhoon.
the engine technology of the “pterosaur-10” UAV, to a certain extent, also draws lessons from the j-69 turbojet engine of the US made bqm147 “Firebee” unmanned reconnaissance aircraft. This is the result of the relevant technical research on the wreckage of the UAV after the J-6 fighter plane shot down more than 20 UAVs in the 1960s, and on this basis, they carried out some upgrading and improvement. It is believed that this UAV will continue to play a greater role and significance in related fields in the future. By Wang Zhenguo
