How Lancet Drone Works | Exploring Aerial Kamikaze Innovations

Intro­duc­ing the men­ac­ing Lance of drone, a pow­er­ful asset in coor­di­na­tion with the oralan unmanned aer­i­al vehi­cle. This cut­ting-edge drone launch­es from a cat­a­pult, ensur­ing seam­less sur­veil­lance and pre­cise tar­get des­ig­na­tion. Once deployed, the Lancet drone takes on a crit­i­cal role. It loi­ters or active­ly search­es for the assigned tar­get, ready to deci­sive­ly destroy or dis­able the ene­my threat. We will also be look­ing into the basic step-by-step process of this tech­nol­o­gy, explor­ing its intri­cate parts. So stay tuned and don’t miss a beat. The Lancet 3 is the largest mod­el of the series of loi­ter­ing weapons, some­times known as sui­cide or Kamikaze drones.

Devel­oped by the Zala Group, a sub­di­vi­sion of the Kalash­nikov, but what is the big deal with these drones? It’s all about the finan­cials, as it costs around $20,000 to $40,000 to pro­duce them, where­as the Kin­sel Hyper­son­ic mis­sile can cost around $10 mil­lion. The bot­tom line is, even when they are destroyed by anti-air­craft fire, like the Gapard, they can still be pro­duced in larg­er num­bers in a short amount of time. Let’s look at the spec­i­fi­ca­tions. The drone has a length of 1.65 meters or 5.24 feet. Inter­est­ing­ly, this drone has two pairs of x‑shaped wings mount­ed at the front and rear of the fuse­lage and com­mands a wingspan of one meter if you mea­sure from one tip to anoth­er. It weighs around 12 kilo­grams or 26.4 pounds. Com­par­ing this to a per­son will help you under­stand its size even bet­ter. Let’s com­pare this to the Switch­blade 600 and the Sha­heed Kamikaze drones. As you can see, the Sha­heed is much larg­er among the two loi­ter­ing muni­tions, as ani­mat­ed in our recent videos.

Before we exam­ine how it works, let’s look at its parts. Although the Lancet can be oper­at­ed by a two-man crew, behind the scenes, it has a num­ber of parts that help it to oper­ate in the bat­tle­field. Num­ber one, it requires a cat­a­pult to launch the drone. Num­ber two, an Orland drone that is respon­si­ble for nav­i­ga­tion and obser­va­tion for the Lancet. Num­ber three, a com­mand and con­trol cen­ter is required to oper­ate the Orlan as well as the Lancetron. As data regard­ing the Lancet drone is still clas­si­fied, let’s take a look at the parts as a pos­si­ble the­o­ry. Again, I repeat, this is a pos­si­ble the­o­ry of the engi­neer­ing behind the drone. At the front of the drone is the elec­tro-opti­cal guid­ance sys­tem. These cam­eras act as a light con­trast­ing edge of the tar­get, dark or light against the gen­er­al back­ground, to track and guide itself, ensur­ing it acts as a guid­ance mech­a­nism. Just behind the guid­ance sys­tem is the war­head. It is the typ­i­cal kz6, a high explo­sive cir­cu­lar shape charge used for demo­li­tion, pri­mar­i­ly to pen­e­trate armor and rein­forced con­crete for­ti­fi­ca­tions. Mov­ing to the back is the elec­tric-pow­ered engine that pro­pels the drone to the stan­dard speed of 110 kilo­me­ters per hour or 68 miles per hour. Inter­est­ing­ly, this drone can oper­ate only for 40 min­utes, almost sim­i­lar to the Switch­blade 600.

These are the step-by-step process of how this works. Step num­ber one, two sol­diers launch a sur­veil­lance drone named Orlin using a cat­a­pult sys­tem. Step num­ber two, the Orland drone tracks and selects tar­gets. Step num­ber three, a sol­dier unfolds the Lancet drone wings and sets it up for cat­a­pult launch. Step num­ber four, the Orlan com­mand and con­trol sys­tem trans­fers tar­get data to the Lancet drone. Step num­ber five, the Lancet drone switch­es to its elec­tro-opti­cal guid­ance sys­tems as direct­ed by the Orlan com­mand and con­trol cen­ter. Step num­ber six, the Lancet drone will dive into the tar­get and acti­vate the typ­i­cal kz6, a high explo­sive cir­cu­lar shape charge used for demo­li­tion, pri­mar­i­ly to pen­e­trate armor and rein­forced con­crete for­ti­fi­ca­tions. Let’s sim­pli­fy again through these ani­ma­tions. The Orlean com­mand and con­trol sys­tem trans­fers tar­get data to the Lancet drone. The Lancet switch­es to its elec­tro-opti­cal guid­ance sys­tems to track its tar­get. It then descends upon the tar­get using its KZ explo­sives to pen­e­trate light armor, more artillery guns, or trucks. This is how we make orig­i­nal 4K 3D ani­ma­tion from scratch and Blender open-source soft­ware, with two ani­ma­tors work­ing on it full time.
