I am the presenter Oksana Kropyvnytska and we will now talk about the effectiveness of the use of Ukrainian-made drones by the military and how they are able to help beat the enemy despite the fact that Ukrainian defenders receive military aid.
from the volunteer state of international partners, the army’s need for drones persists, and according to specialists’ calculations, this need is measured in the tens of thousands. Defenders use dozens of different civilian and combat models that are adapted to the conditions in which they are. These models are both foreign and foreign.
and domestically produced Ukrainian research and production enterprises are manufacturers of both the drones themselves and unmanned aircraft complexes, the enterprises cooperate with both state and volunteer orders, but even this production is not enough to cover the needs of medium-sized businesses.
to reorient and also adjust the domestic production of drones and now we have a unique opportunity to talk about the development and production of drones and how Ukrainian drones are produced and how difficult the technological process is and whether Ukrainian drones can compete with models.
produced by other countries and now in our radio studio Yuriy Biryuchenko, he is a volunteer reserve military serviceman and the director of the charity foundation of spiritual education, and Mykola Gavrylyuk, a junior sergeant, a military serviceman, the head of a business project, as well as Mr. Yuriy. I welcome you to our studio. Thank you for finding the time and opportunity for this.
conversations Good day Good day ladies Glory to Ukraine Glory to the heroes Today we will also hear on our air, a little later, defenders who told us their opinion about the use of Ukrainian drones on the battlefield, this will happen later. that collect money for drones.
drones are needed, there are not enough drones, why is this device so important and why is there still such a great need for our defenders in it, the role of unmanned aircraft in the entire war is unprecedented.
is being used, there is a massive use of unmanned aircraft, the role of unmanned aircraft is difficult to underestimate, but I believe that our victory or our defeat largely depends on this segment, because this is the intelligence it actually performs.
Roughly speaking, the role played by aviation in the Second World War, that is, it is difficult not to appreciate it, and all our victories are largely due to the fact that our army was used proactively, decentralized, and massively.
drones played a particularly big role drone civilian civilian drones of Chinese production, first of all the famous mavik matriss Well, and others like that, that’s why Well, we paid attention to the role of these drones, and even in the summer, well, the state a little.
later turned Literally a year later and it appeared Well, we set ourselves a task, which means we will develop it, it happened after we, at the request of various parts of the units, purchased Chinese drones Matrix 300, well, I want to explain what Matrix 300 m is.
300 meters means, er, quite expensive Chinese civilian drone that has good optics, good exterior, because of that it is used for reconnaissance, adjusting artillery fire, its cost is approximately 20 thousand euros and more, depending on the configuration, and accordingly, it has.
certain limitations because, in fact, this is a civilian drone that is simply used for the military, and we set ourselves the task of making an analogue of such a drone, a reconnaissance drone, a drone, meaning an artillery adjuster, that would be adapted specifically for combat operations.
and, accordingly, it would not have the disadvantages that any Dji drone should have. Well, it took about 5 months to develop such a drone, which means such an analogue. Yes, plus or minus certain funds, and now here we have it and we can show and demonstrate means something What we did means in this sense.
this is what concerns our, so to speak, all of our developments. And let’s talk about that. So, from the moment of what concerns the general problem. Well, I say that the state paid attention to it quite late, unfortunately, our country is based, in principle, not on state management, but on horizontal so to speak in communications.
that is why we have shown such initiative and hope and even hope that our developments will be no worse than the Chinese ones and will bring benefits to those at the forefront when they decided to do this kind of business in general.
what did the specialists who should be in order to be able to develop such a model start, then we are united in this case, we are military personnel, I am simply saying for support for assistance, which means the command of our unit and with the help of a charity fund. So we are doing this, as far as business is concerned.
I agree with you, why? That it should be a business, that is, sales will end, the debugger will help us with the production of these drones, they are not single copies, not tens of hundreds, and because in reality they are such drones, they are needed for the armed forces. Well, plus, I just didn’t say it yet we have developed another model of this.
impact drone Well, regarding the technical characteristics and other points, Mykola will of course tell you better because he is the technical manager of this project. Mykola, you are the technical manager of the psycho project. Please tell us what kind of model this drone can do and how much it is equipped with Ukrainian there is also a need for imported ones.
certain parts were developed completely here in advance They asked about the composition of the team, who should it be, in fact, all our compatriots are engineers, technical schemes, software developers, there are even designers and mainly designers, the whole concert was completely from scratch.
the ratio of Chinese spare parts developed here, i.e. those that come here and what is made here is approximately 60 to 40, but we are constantly trying to make a more closed production cycle, that is, less dependent on Chinese suppliers, this is a rather complicated process, it is quite capacious and.
not everything will be able to be replaced, but we are moving in this direction with a popular solution from the DJ company, and they can, well, track the location of the pilot with the help of the excavation system, it is impossible to track our drone with our systems, e‑e, at the expense of compactness, it is twice as compact as the matrix itself, it can be carried in one small backpack.
and it is twice as light as its take-off data, at the same time Well, it is saved on account of the price, it is also twice as cheap as this matrix and with the same configuration, in fact, a separate issue is fish resistance, it is much more resistant to rebo And the troops, that is, for the sake of the enemy’s electronic warfare than DJ, that is, he actually flies where he does not fly.
enters completely Well, I’m going to explain a little what excavation means. And excavation means revealing to me the location where the operator is and even before the fact that the enemy can do it, it means that our operators, especially those drones of the DJ company, are now suffering heavy losses, so our drone allows us to secure drone operator from enemy artillery in this way.
that she can’t, well, it’s not much more difficult to find out, because between this finding there was a procession of developments and cooperation with specialists that caused difficulties, at which stages discussions arose or what possible details had to be waited for a long time and this dragged out the process in time quite a long time, it was a choice components e‑e which are selected by
we actually started the price-quality ratio and availability model when logistical issues were generally the most difficult issue, that is, to choose conditionally from 10 types of some components, you could wait one and a half to two months until it clears customs, while it travels through other countries, and it was a whole .
I think the problem is the most difficult and the most time-consuming, then it took a lot of time for the software itself, after we achieved normal motor characteristics, the drone began to fly well, behave well in the air, counteract the wind and all such metrological wishes, then the question of its interaction with .
it also took almost half of the total time. Have you already shown this model to the military who work directly on the battlefield with drones and are controlled by them? Did you share your impressions at all and could they somehow evaluate its future perspective? This happened many times. was not on
in leading positions, it was based on the training centers of the training grounds, so we received a positive reaction, there was an opportunity to compare it with DJ equipment, in addition to how it works, in fact, in the same period of time, it showed itself worthy. is worth
approximately 20,000 euros for how much money can volunteers or those who can, it will be a state order to buy such a drone, for example, well, about twice as cheap, but depending on the configuration, several types of configuration will be produced, depending on the configuration, the cost will be, well, it depends on this and combat.
The price of the drone will also decrease. The drone will also be cheaper. Look, we don’t have a Chinese analogue. It was developed completely from scratch by us. Well, it will also cost much cheaper than Chinese analogues, so to speak. Thank you very much. We now have opportunity to hear
of military aerial reconnaissance, this is the commander of a platoon of an unmanned aviation complex with the call sign Chief and his brother with the call sign Lavash. Actually, they told us about how they feel about the development and development and production of Ukrainian drones. Let’s listen to them together. Good day Ukrainian drones.
production is in no way inferior to the Chinese manufacturer, and even in some positions it is better and of better quality, first of all, our drones are better against enemy fish, our guys in the production of drones, be they reconnaissance or shock, first of all, they set themselves the task of making this product of higher quality, because they do not know how to in which difficult and sometimes
their birds will work in non-human conditions. Moreover, the lives of the boys depend on them. When Ukrainian entrepreneurs, despite the difficult situation in Ukraine, still take risks, they invest their strength and their own funds in the development of the establishment of the production of drones with consumables.
it takes a lot, I really believe that the sooner Ukrainian business sets up their mass production, the better we will beat the enemy and save the lives of not only our defenders, but also the lives of our relatives, our children of our Ukrainian people. Glory to Ukraine and glory to all our defenders.
let me remind you that we heard the commander of the platoon of the unmanned aircraft complex with the call sign Chief and next to him was his brother with the call sign Lavash in the background we heard the assistant and the friend of our defenders It was a dog Valkyrie such a drone must undergo a certain certification, it must somehow be registered and receive appropriate permits for its production.
Of course, if we are talking about official deployment or use by the armed forces, it must go through a number of procedures approved by the ministry and after that it can be directly delivered to the armed forces. Do you have plans for further development of drones? Do you remain on the models that are already available? No it is a process of continuous improvement.
in principle, they cannot be, that is, there is no final version in this, neither in drums nor in any others, if someone says this, it is not true because the enemy is also adapting, the enemy is also constantly improving and they are constantly looking for a countermeasure, this is a continuous war, simply continuous, I sincerely thank you for this conversation, I will remind you.
that Yuriy Biryuchenko and Mykola Gavrylyuk were with us in the studio. Today we talked about the development and production of domestic drones, which are constantly needed by our defenders at the front, so we ask everyone, if you have such an opportunity, to donate money to the Armed Forces and support our defenders under any conditions. Thank you were with us on
