RYBINSK /Yaroslavl Region/, September 3. /TASS/. Russia’s United Instrument-Manufacturing Corporation (UIMC), a subsidiary of state corporation Rostec, opened the first industrial facility in Rybinsk in the Yaroslavl Region for the serial production of new generation small- and medium-sized drones, a TASS correspondent reported from the scene on Thursday.
"More than 120 million rubles [$1.8 million] were invested in building the new industrial facility. The facility is designed to manufacture Korsar medium-class promising drones and a number of other short-range unmanned aerial vehicles," the UIMC press office told TASS.
"Our developments in the sphere of unmanned aviation, communications and control systems, as well as state-of-the-art equipment that is being installed in new facilities in Rybinsk will allow us to fulfill orders for drones of any complexity," UIMC CEO Alexander Yakunin said.
"A package approach is used at this facility as we manufacture not only airframes but also drone-borne equipment, including communications systems, on-board computing and control systems and various assemblies. We can say without exaggeration that world-class technologies have been introduced," Luch Design Bureau CEO Mikhail Shebakpolsky said.
The industrial facility is planned to be built completely in 2018. The second stage of the project envisages the establishment of another facility equipped with state-of-the-art equipment to work with composite materials, manufacture spare parts and assemble drones.
The first serial vehicle the facility will produce will be a Korsar medium-class short-range surveillance drone with a maximum range of 120 kilometers.
