Expert Khripunov: Russia is still facing a shortage of a number of technologies for drones
MOSCOW, Feb 6 – PRIME. The industry of unmanned aerial systems (UAS) in Russia today needs such air navigation technologies as radio navigation systems, radar, meteorology and others, for some of them there is a shortage on the market, the general director of Aeroscript Research Center (a company participating in the NTI Aeronet market) told RIA Novosti. ) Alexey Khripunov.
The industry of unmanned aerial systems (UAS) today needs such air navigation technologies as radio navigation, radar and meteorological systems. There is a shortage on the market for a number of them,” Khripunov said.
According to him, the demand for unmanned operations using drones in Russia is growing. Therefore, in the coming years, the industry of unmanned aerial systems on the Russian market will demand all the basic air navigation technologies that allow drones to fly, and “some of them are already in short supply today.”
“Aeronautical technologies are used for air traffic management, including UAS. They are an add-on to IT and include radio communications, radar, radio navigation, data, meteorology to some extent, automation (software, algorithms) and mathematics on top of all this. In addition, air navigation technologies are avionics, ground infrastructure, data, automation tools, software,” the expert said.
Khripunov also noted that technologies for integrating drones into a single airspace are also in high demand, including IT solutions, products and equipment in the field of information security.
“The drone industry also requires electronics, printed circuit boards, SMD assembly, measuring equipment, programming languages, libraries, operating systems, server platforms, and much more to develop. Innumerable development automation tools can be added to this,” Khripunov emphasized.
