The VR-Technologies Design Bureau, part of Russian Нelicopters JSC, has developed the unique tiltrotor unmanned aerial vehicle. The new RHV-35 unmanned convertible aircraft has unveiled at International military and technical forum ARMY-2016.
The new unmanned aerial vehicle that looks like a drone from Terminator. A number of oil and gas companies and various government agencies are already showing interest in the unique project.
The project is implemented as part of the Speed program adopted by Russian Helicopters. The main objective during the development of the unmanned aircraft was to create a flying test bed to determine the efficiency of design layouts and search for innovative solutions.
Tiltrotors are a special class of rotorcrafts that have a number of advantages over traditional aerial vehicles built up according to the airplane or helicopter schemes.
They can make vertical takeoffs and landings on restricted landing pads while transporting passengers or cargo with greater speed and over longer distances than traditional helicopters.
The RHV-35 unmanned convertible aircraft already has made its maiden flight. Russian Helicopters performed the tests of the tiltrotor at Skolkovo Innovation Centre.
