Kronshtadt Group held a presentation of advanced high-speed UAV Fregat, which does not require an airfield, at MAKS-2015 international airshow.

Kronshtadt Company (part of Kronshtadt Group) is starting development of Fregat UAV, which does not require an airfield. In accordance with the performance specification, Fregat will combine a vertical takeoff and landing capability with a good aircraft performance, which allows carrying out work in hard-to-reach regions having no airfield structure, the company explained.

The UAV designed for aerial reconnaissance and cargo transportation will be able to carry a payload of 1 700 kg (when taking off like an aircraft) and 1000 kg (when taking off like a helicopter). Ceiling will be 8000 m, maximum flight duration – around 10 hours.

The project will be implemented in several stages. At the first stage a flying model will be created in order to test major technical solutions. At the second stage a prototype powered by a production engine will be developed and tested. Depending on the results of the second stage, a decision on starting further research and development work will be made, the company added.
