The Polish HAASTA Combat Drone Is Capable of Overcoming Enemy Air Defenses and Can Operate as Part of a Swarm

The War­saw Aero­space Insti­tute designed and devel­oped the HAASTA unmanned sys­tem, tak­ing into account the needs of mil­i­tary oper­a­tions.

The HAASTA design was devel­oped joint­ly with Eurotech and is based on com­bat expe­ri­ence over the past few years. The drone is equipped with a hybrid propul­sion sys­tem that serves (depend­ing on the ver­sion) for sur­veil­lance, car­go trans­porta­tion, pho­tog­ra­phy and long-range recon­nais­sance.

It is use­ful for the army because it can oper­ate as a recon­nais­sance UAV and as a kamikaze drone, and it can also be a dis­tract­ing drone for ene­my air defense.

The devel­op­ers claim that HAASTA can work as part of a swarm, trans­mit­ting data to oth­er UAVs or receiv­ing oper­a­tor infor­ma­tion from them. As a com­bat vehi­cle, the drone is designed to over­come ene­my air defens­es, oper­ate in the depths of ene­my groups, and per­form recon­nais­sance and sab­o­tage mis­sions.

Eurotech has made the drone mod­u­lar. Radar and opti­cal sen­sors can be placed on the drone for hom­ing if the drone is planned to be used as a kamikaze drone. The unique drone con­trol sys­tem allows the oper­a­tor to con­trol up to 10 HAASTA drones simul­ta­ne­ous­ly.
