HAL successfully completes demonstration flight of 10 kg Rotary wing Unmanned Aerial Vehicle

Bengaluru, Aug 3 (UNI) Defence Aviation PSU Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) successfully demonstrated flight of a 10 Kg Rotary Wing (Helicopter) Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (RUAV) here.

HAL in a statement here on Friday said the RUAV is powered by a 2-stroke petrol engine, with twin blade main rotor and tail rotor, It had a payload capability of 2.5 Kg including live stream video camera and range of the vehicle is 8-10 Km with an endurance of one hour.

The flight carried out recently lasted for about ten minutes during which the Attitude Control Attitude Hold (ACAH) mode, Position Control, Position Hold mode (autonomous hover), low speed flight in forward, backward and sideward directions, were demonstrated. The video feed from on-board the helicopter was streamed live and shown on the dedicated video receiver. The status of the helicopter, its parameters and its real-time position on the map were also shown.

To achieve self reliance in the aviation field and to enhance its R&D efforts, HAL is working closely with premier educational institutes and has established chairs at IITs (Madras, Roorkee, Kharagpur, Bombay, Kanpur) and IISc Bengaluru. The RUAV is developed in association with IIT Kanpur and is the first outcome of HAL’s tie-ups with academia.

With this demo, HAL’s Rotary Wing R&D Centre (RWR&DC) is well poised to employ its skills and capabilities to undertake development of Rotary UAVs of higher weight classes and weapons as payloads. The success is the testimony of the Industry-academia collaboration, HAL chairman and Managing Director. T. Suvarna Raju said.

The RWR&DC at HAL is the unique R&D Centre in the country involved in Design and Development of Rotary Wing Platforms (Helicopters) Military and Civil operations. Advance Light Helicopter in its different variants (ALH-Dhruv, ALH-Rudra, ALH Wheeled version) is one of its star products and in service with the Indian Defence Forces. The Light Combat Helicopter is also designed and developed by this Centre and is under production for Indian Army and Indian Air Force.

The RWR&DC having wide and varied experience, strong skill sets in development of Rotary Platforms has partnered with Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur (IITK) to embark upon design and development of a Rotary Unmanned Air Vehicle (RUAV) for Defence and Para-Military Forces and homeland security. These efforts led to successful development of control laws, a full authority flight controller, also known as Fly By Wire system for helicopters and other associated technologies like autonomous navigation system and ground control system..
