Rostec State Corporation-affiliated Roselectronics Holding will exhibit Korsar drone for the first time at the Victory Parade on May 9, 2018. Korsar is designed for terrain reconnaissance, patrol and observation flights as well as aerial photography of the terrain within the 120 km radius range.
The newest drone is equipped with a piston engine and can accelerate up to 150 km/h. Korsar weighs 200 kg, its wingspan is 6.5 m, and fuselage length is 4.2 m. The Korsar unmanned aircraft is part of the Korsar UAV complex comprising several airborne devices and a common ground control system.
In future, the complex can be supplemented with flying machines featuring an improved performance and enhanced functionality. In particular, it is planned to increase the operating range to 250 km, and equip aircrafts with electronic warfare systems and advanced reconnaissance capabilities.
An important feature of the complex is its multifunctionality since it can be used for a number of civil purposes like environmental monitoring, road and infrastructure control, forest fire warning, people search and rescue apart from combat missions.
