An unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) shaped like a bird and designed for reconnaissance missions will be shown along with other latest developments at the Zhukovsky-Gagarin Air Force Academy on Innovations Day this week, Russia’s Defense Ministry reported on Monday.

The participants in the event will demonstrate their latest and promising innovations in the field of unmanned aviation, robotic complexes, airborne radio-electronic equipment, armaments and IT technology.

“Among the exhibits, the guests to the event will see a radio reconnaissance station mounted on a rotary-wing drone, a robotic mines detection complex, the latest infrared system of small-size aircraft automated landing,” the Russian Defense Ministry said.

The Academy’s specialists will also show a bird-shaped drone designed “for reconnoitering terrain and ensuring a safe ornithological situation during flights at the aerodrome,” the ministry said.

“Scientific departments, institutes and centers, the research company and the cadets’ engineering school will present about 50 various projects. The event will be held on February 6 under the direction of Air Force Academy Chief Colonel-General Gennady Zibrov,” the ministry added.

This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
