It is a very interesting area, a dual-purpose machine with a payload, supersonic sound and radar suppression," Dolgov said. According to him, the UAV can be used to suppress drones and disperse riots.
The Shershen is a drone with a radius of up to 10 km. "We are currently testing a quadrotor shell capable of deflecting radars. This should be its feature. If you look at the sample on display at the exhibition, it has <…> a special paint on it that can deflect radars," he emphasized.
Shershen drones can also be used in the oil and gas sector for control of oil and natural gas pipelines and environmental monitoring.
