There is still much space for improvement and innovation when processing clouds. At present, mostly meteorological rockets (for example, "Alazan") or specially re-equipped civilian aircrafts are used to conduct such studies. Nevertheless, both methods are not precise/effective enough, as well as are extremely expensive to use.
The implementation of unmanned aerial vehicles is capable of producing a technological revolution. Further, our machines possess the capability of flying directly into a cloud, using the trajectory determined "on the fly" from the ground at a constant flight level (i.e., Alt Hold flight mode). This new technology greatly improves the accuracy, as well as efficiency, of both meteorological work and research; most importantly, it reduces their cost.
We suggest using such layout variants as a tailless airplane and / or an X-wing airplane with silver-iodide aerosol cartridges placed on their external mount, when carrying out these operations.
