The Tupolev OKB, most sensible recognized for its heavy bombers and advertisement plane, additionally had a line of UAVs of various measurement. the 1st of those was once the Tu-123 Yastreb which began existence as a heavy cruise missile yet developed right into a supersonic unmanned spyplane; the e-book additionally describes the Tu-141 Strizh (Swift), which back got here in reconnaissance and aim types, the Tu-243 Reys (Flight) and the most recent Tu-300 recce/strike UAV. The Yakovlev OKB's unmanned plane also are coated, together with the Pchela (Bee) surveillance UAV which has visible operational use within the Chechen wars; point out can be made up of UAVs and drones constructed by means of such businesses as Strela and the Moscow Aviation Institute. The booklet is richly illustrated with black-and-white and colour images, together with until-now unpublished ones, and line drawings.

Hypersonic Airbreathing Propulsion (AIAA Education)

The following nice bounce for jet propulsion might be to power-sustained, effective flight throughout the surroundings. "Hypersonic Airbreathing Propulsion offers the 1st finished, unified creation to all parts of the scramjet engine that might make this feat attainable. The textual content emphasizes primary rules, guiding recommendations, analytical derivations, and numerical examples having transparent, helpful, insightful effects.

Systems of Quasilinear Equations and Their Applications to Gas Dynamics

This e-book is largely a brand new variation, revised and augmented by way of result of the decade, of the paintings of an analogous identify released in 1968 by way of ``Nauka. '' it really is dedicated to mathematical questions of fuel dynamics. themes lined contain Foundations of the speculation of platforms of Quasilinear Equations of Hyperbolic style in self sustaining Variables; Classical and Generalized options of One-Dimensional fuel Dynamics; distinction equipment for fixing the Equations of fuel Dynamics; and Generalized options of structures of Quasilinear Equations of Hyperbolic style.

Example text

The VR-3 (Reys) tactical unmanned aerial reconnaissance system was exported to Czechoslovakia, Romania and Syria. The Syrians used it in actual combat in 1982 for reconnoitring Lebanese territory captured by 47 Top: A red-starred '143' (Tu-143) in the grey and red colours typical of the type sits where it has landed after a test flight in late autumn (judging by the scant snow cover). The clamshell doors of the recovery parachute bay immediately ahead of the fin are open and the landing gear oleos are fully compressed by the landing impact.

The forward fuselage (frames 3-9) serves as an avionics/equipment bay housing control system modules and electric equipment. The centre fuselage (frames 9-14) features the air intake. Its forward part accommodates the fuel tank (through which the S-shaped inlet duct passes), the fuel pump, the fuel accumulator, the G load protection device ensuring stable engine operation during manoeuvres and the hydraulic pump. The lower portion of Section F3 houses the rear aerial of the radio altimeter and Doppler speed/drift sensor (enclosed by a flush dielectric panel) and the electric power distribution panel.

Standing on its four short landing gear struts, the thing has a surreal look - 'an anteater from outer space'. ELlNT systems' frequency generators, which were very vulnerable to overheating), the DC generators and some control system and fuel system components against the strong kinetic heating in cruise flight; • develop an environmental control system capable of maintaining the required temperature, pressure and air humidity in the avionics/mission equipment bays with a higher degree of precision than the ECS of the '121' missile; • create a new precision navigation suite comprising an automatic flight control system (AFCS) enabling autonomous flight along a predesignated route and a compass system guiding the aircraft to the designated area where the reconnaissance equipment capsule is to be jettisoned and retrieved; • develop a long-range operations (LOROP) camera with a focal length of 1,000 mm (39% in) producing pictures making it possible to define such objects as railway tracks, trains and locomotives, small buildings and single vehicles (tanks, armoured personnel carriers and automobiles); • develop and verify an operational ideology for all stages of the system's operation and issue operating manuals for the system as a whole and its components for use by the first-line units.
