The presence of technology in today’s war conflicts is a fact. In the war between Ukraine and Russia, the latest in this field has been essential for the manufacture of a large part of the vehicles and weapons being used by them. In the past, it was important to have a good navy or aircraft, Apart from this, it is also necessary to have a drone.
There are different types of unmanned vehicles designed for combat. Some are used for defense, others for sighting and there are even some that are designed to kill. In any case, technology is a fundamental part of its proper functioning. Today in 20BITS we are going to talk about the world’s deadliest Artificial Intelligence.
It is a kamikaze drone developed by the Israeli defense company Elbit Systems which is designed For “search and attack”. The Lanius is intended to be launched by special forces and troops in operations in urban centers, where it is difficult to lock onto a target and eliminate it from a distance.
The device weighs only 1.25 kg and can be carried both outdoors and indoors Speed up to 20 meters per second. As its makers show in a video, its four high-powered rotors don’t give the enemy time to react before striking.
The Lanius features GPS technology, various optical sensors and LiDAR and has an Nvidia Jetson TX2 processor, which allows you to move quickly in very tight spaces. “The system includes a SLAM algorithm [ubicación y mapeo simultáneos]which uses image processing to identify points of interest and display relevant data and identification information to the operator,” the brand underlines.
It is an aircraft built by Peking University of Aeronautics and Astronautics and Chinese manufacturer Harbin Aircraft Industry for the People’s Liberation Army Air Force. This unmanned combat vehicle has been operational since 2013.
BZK-005C has optical-electrical sensor system for long distance altitude detection and has Cruising speed of about 170 km/h. This drone can be used for both surveillance mission and strike mission.
General Atomics developed this complete weapon system at the end of the last century and currently has 75 models available. It has several technical components:
- APX-100: To automatically identify whether another flying object is ‘friendly’ or ‘foe’.
- Inertial Navigation System: To fly with one or two possible solutions.
- AGM-114: Corresponds to the AGM-114 Hellfire missile when attached to a drone.
- ARC-210 Receiver/Transmitter: Allows two multifunction connections with voice and data transmission at frequencies between 30-512 MHz.
- Electro-Optical / Infrared / AN / AAS-52 Sensor: For high range detection of enemy targets by infrared and other sensors.
- SAR: Synthetic aperture radar for adverse weather conditions.
It is also called Predator B and its developer is the same as the previous one: General Atomics. at the turn of the century, it became In the first attack UAVs designed for surveillance Long span and high altitude.
It can be equipped with a loadout of weapons and sensors depending on the combat mission at hand. Operators must be in ready sites to control the aircraftSuch as Creech Air Force Base near Las Vegas (USA).
In October 2007, the MG-9 was used against a target for the first time, firing a Hellfire missile. against the “Afghan rebels” In the region of the hill province of Hazara”.
