In Ukraine, the new Leleka LR drone was presented, incorporating the latest technologies to counteract enemy electronic warfare
The Ukrainian-Czech company UAC unveiled the advanced unmanned aerial reconnaissance complex Leleka LR. It will be manufactured at a Czech plant to ensure the material, technical, and intellectual production base.
The manufacturer of "Leleka-100," the company Deviro, will produce the new drone in the EU. Testing of UAVs, maintenance services, and the UAV operator training center will remain in Ukraine, as reported by "Military."
The complex was developed based on the experience gained from the Russian-Ukrainian war, with a focus on protection against enemy electronic warfare systems. It is claimed that the drone incorporates state-of-the-art technological solutions to counteract enemy EW systems.
The "Leleka" drone features redundancy in its primary systems. It has multiple communication channels spread across different frequencies, incorporating all necessary encryption algorithms. The drone is equipped with anti-jamming systems, including CRP antennas.
The Leleka LR complex is designed for reconnaissance and artillery fire adjustment. To achieve this, it is equipped with a two-axis gyro-stabilized electro-optical module featuring a 25x optical and 4x digital zoom. It is lightweight and available in both day and night versions with a thermal imaging observation channel.
Additionally, the UAV's onboard computer incorporates digital video processing algorithms. It can track static and moving objects, automatically keeping them centered in the frame.
The complex allows for the coordinated use of the drone with artillery and multiple launch rocket systems like Himars.
The reconnaissance UAV complex has already undergone operational testing by special units on the front lines, particularly on the Zaporizhzhia direction, and has been used to adjust Ukrainian artillery.
