Search and rescue in extreme conditions today is an area undeveloped for unmanned aviation. There are many reasons for this, but the main issue is the set of requirements that experts impose to the aircraft itself and specifically to its aerodynamic qualities.
A UAV must be able to operate in two modes simultaneously: horizontal flight (i.e., reminiscent to an airplane) and vertical flight (i.e., comparable to either an helicopter or a quadcopter) – each with the capability of hovering over the target. Next, the altitude ceiling of such aircrafts is considered critical; that is, it should go no higher than 10,000 meters. In addition, the UAV must remain stable in conditions of large-scale turbulence (e.g., amidst strong anabatic and fall winds) and should also be rendered capable of operating in the presence of static electricity. Our design is the first one within the UAV market to date, meets almost all set requirements, and even has a development reserve that is considered several years ahead by some parameters.

Airplane with an X-wing
(analogues – the MAI airplane with an X-wing and the Shkval-1A project airplane of the Sukhov Design Bureau, barring the HERO-400EC ammunition) is intended for vertical take-off, landing and hovering in two modes – vertical ("helicopter") and horizontal ("airplane"). It is characterized by low inductive resistance, high power-to-weight and thrust-to-weight ratios (up to 2-3), good controllability over all three spatial axes. Due to the large critical angle of attack, it is not very sensitive to ascending and descending flows, which allows it to fly in conditions of large-scale turbulence, for example, directly near mountain slopes or in cumulus clouds. The presence of four wing consoles allows it to fly at altitudes of more than 32 808 ft.

It is designed for flights in conditions of strong turbulence, with strong ascending and descending currents in mountains at altitudes of more than 14 763 ft. It is able to fully operate where piloted aircrafts and traditional unmanned aerial vehicles are helpless.

This configuration (layout) is distinguished by: high values of critical angles of attack, symmetry of aerodynamic characteristics along all axes, good controllability, ability to carry out vertical take-off and landing.

The main purpose is air support of search and rescue operations in the mountainous terrain at high altitudes.

Special feature of the instrument compartment is the Flir Boson thermal imager.

The placement of additional payload (containers for medicines capable of removing oxygen starvation or for small loads) and/or parachute is provided for on the external mount.

Tailless airplane
is one of the main types of small unmanned aircrafts intended for aerial photography and monitoring the earth's surface (analogues – Horten Ho IX (1940), Northrop N-1M (1940), B-49 (1946), Northrop B-2 Spirit (1989), unmanned aircrafts of Geoscans and ZALA companies). It differs in simplicity of design, small specific wing load, and difficulty of manual control.

The main purpose – monitoring the earth surface, aerial photography, creation of three-dimensional image, cartography, search operations at a distance (height) of at least 656 ft from the surface of the earth (slopes), etc.

Features of the instrument compartment – higher resolution camera with the between-lens shutter, thermal imager

External mount can be used for extra payload – additional accumulators, radiation environment and harmful atmospheric admixtures monitoring sensor, and / or a parachute

It is designed for flights in a relatively calm atmosphere at altitudes of up to four thousand meters.

Features of design and configuration (in comparison with the X-wing airplane):
  • reduced value of the wing specific load;
  • increased weight of the permitted payload;
  • reduced number of drive motors – reduced energy consumption and increased flight time and range;
  • simplicity of construction.

One-piece fuselage motor-glider
is an excellent option for long flights, including high altitude ones, in a relatively calm atmosphere. Analogues – MQ-9 Reaper, Predator, X-UAV Talon, Orion-E drones. It works well for retransmission of radio signals, long-term monitoring of the earth's surface. This scheme is successfully used in aircrafts with electric motor and solar panels.

The main purposes are signal retransmission and ground surface monitoring

Features of the instrumentation compartment – signal repeater and / or higher resolution camera with the between-lens shutter.

External mount can be used for extra payload – additional accumulators, radiation environment and harmful atmospheric admixtures monitoring sensor and / or a parachute.

It is designed for flights in a calm atmosphere at high altitudes and away from the slopes of the mountains.

Features of design and configuration (in comparison with other modifications of the device):
  • the lowest load on the wing;
  • the lowest power consumption level;
  • the longest flight time ensures hovering of the aircraft above the desired point or area and retransmission of the signal downward (for example, to the aircrafts occupying lower flight levels) for a long period of time.
Here are two visual examples of various flight plans when conducting a SEARCH and RESCUE on a southern slope:

A huge variety of tasks and functions for our aircrafts dictate the need for a wide variety of assembling options for the central component of the machine: its instrument compartment. Just like the exterior of our aircrafts, the inner configuration can be directly modified during flight preparations.

As a matter of convenience, we have combined all options for equipping the instrument compartment within two groups: constant filling (i.e., it does not change when the aerodynamic configuration of the aircraft and / or the flight assignments are changed) and variable payload (i.e., it remains contingent upon the user's preference; in addition, it is dependent upon the specific flight objectives).
