The specimen differs markedly from the already existing unmanned drones and bears no resemblance to them. This new project draws on the combined international experience of unmanned aircraft design. The aircraft is capable not only of ‘normal’ take-off and landing on a runway, but also of vertical operation. The drone also has a radio transparent body which makes its detection by radar extremely difficult.
The Shtil aircraft is flexible enough to be used for a multitude of applications. One of its major functions is surveillance, in commercial and municipal sectors, as well as in the military field. Geological surveys, oil and gas pipeline monitoring, jamming, aerial target application (the drone has a high flight speed of up to 780 km per hour), rescue mission assistance at emergencies both on land and at sea – this is just a small list of functions the new drone is able to perform.
