MINSK, 15 March (BelTA) – Mongolia and Azerbaijan are interested in Belarusian technologies of manufacturing unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), BelTA learned from Alexander Shchavlev, Deputy Director of the R&D Center for Multifunctional Unmanned Complexes of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus, on 15 March.
“The demand for our products has turned out to be great. In the last five years many systems have been exported. Apart from selling individual products we also offer Belarusian technologies of manufacturing flying machines and parts of unmanned complexes. The option enjoys solid demand on the global market. We have supplied such technological lines to Vietnam, Turkmenistan. Now Mongolia and Azerbaijan are interested in it,” said Alexander Shchavlev.
The National Academy of Sciences of Belarus has created three recognizable brands — Busel, Burevestnik, and Dirizhabl. The product choice includes proprietary autopilots that can steer flying machines and systems that can automatically land flying machines on a runway. A number of stationary devices have been developed as well. They can be used to test individual components of unmanned aerial vehicles. Optical and electronic systems with a high degree of stabilization that can feed quality imagery from the aircraft are also available.
In the next five years efforts of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus in this area will be focused on a new state R&D program Robotized Complexes and Aerospace Technologies.
On the whole, Alexander Shchavlev noted that future belongs to unmanned aircraft. Belarus has laid down the foundation that will allow the country to stay at the forefront of manufacturing unmanned aerial vehicles.More about Society
