Primoco UAV SE, the Czech firm, and the Army of the Czech Republic efficiently examined the Primoco UAV One 150 unmanned aerial automobile (UAV) targeted on verifying battlefield communication techniques and optical reconnaissance sensors.
From 6 to 9 September 2021, the navy coaching space Libavá hosted the testing of the Primoco UAV One 150 for the advantage of the Czech Army, targeted on the verification of communication techniques to help battlefield communications and optical reconnaissance sensors. The plane was operated underneath the corporate’s civilian licence, however was outfitted with navy communication techniques and an electro-optical reconnaissance unit primarily based on the collection of the Czech Army. The purpose of the exams was to familiarize the specialists of the Army of the Czech Republic with the plane itself, in addition to to confirm the efficiency and traits of the communication and reconnaissance techniques.
The One 150 plane with a most take-off weight of 150 kg was outfitted with particular radio and knowledge communication tools within the type of a radio station from L3 Harris and ANW2C datalinks from Persistent Systems, chosen by specialists of the Czech Army, that are suitable with established sorts. During flight operations over the navy coaching space, the plane in day and night time situations offered retransmission of communications from particular person floor stations that weren’t in direct line of sight to one another, and in addition carried out reconnaissance and identification of pre-prepared targets. The take a look at outcomes have proven that the plane can reliably function as a key airborne component of the manned community idea and allow the Army to deploy a safe communications system in just about any space no matter terrain situations or floor infrastructure. The proof was a practical and high-quality connection over a distance of tens of kilometres, which ensured each voice and knowledge transmission and distant management of robotic techniques used within the Czech Armed Forces.
The ultimate day of the testing was personally attended by the Chief of General Staff, Army General Ing. Ales Opata, and Chief of Staff Lieutenant General Ing. Miroslav Hlaváč, who had been briefed on the progress of the exams and in addition on the unmanned plane and its operation system, together with a floor demonstration of the primary navy plane One 150M, which is already registered within the navy aviation register of the Ministry of Defence. During the demonstration, the Chief of the General Staff was notably constructive concerning the capabilities of Czech business: “Czech suppliers, who can successfully and shortly tackle our necessities even in emergency conditions, are key for the Czech Army. I welcome the chance to work with the Czech aerospace business, together with Primoco UAV, as it’s useful to each events, and this take a look at demonstrated that. The trials of the communication techniques have been fully fulfilled and present that the idea of creating communication techniques primarily based on ad-hoc MANET networks adopted by our military is the proper means. Another necessary characteristic is verifying that the technique for the event of command and management techniques has been chosen accurately and its anticipated growth of using air communication elevates the capabilities of the military as a complete to a brand new degree.”
Presenting the plane to the General Staff delegation, the CEO of Primoco UAV SE mentioned: “We are honoured to cooperate with the Czech Army. Its members did a superbly organized job in making ready and conducting the exams. The great expertise of the navy personnel throughout this train has allowed us to realize helpful insights that may assist enhance the One 150M plane to raised meet the wants of contemporary armed forces. I contemplate it necessary to say that our firm offered solely the operation and piloting of the plane, however the operation of the techniques on board was dealt with by members of the Czech Army. I want to thank General Abbot for the chance to arrange such trials. Just the truth that the Army of the Czech Republic follows the event of the capabilities of home business, and at sure occasions desires to check these capabilities, testifies to the truth that its specialists comply with world developments and are continually engaged on methods to extend the capabilities of the corps.”
