PURPOSE OF THE SYSTEM

Drone – octocopter with 8 twined props - quadrocopter scheme.
Designed for search, detection and identification of objects in a given area or under the route with determined coordinates, as well as for airborne operations with payload. The complex allows to transmit real-time video and other useful information directly to the ground control station.
Can perform autonomous flight on a given route, which consists of a coordinates array in the fully automatic mode (operator free).
Under condition of absence of radio communication between UAV and ground control station (GCS) telemetry and photographically-acquired information is being recorded by on-board solid-state drive. Can perform take-off and landing in fully automated mode from defined coordinates after the certain
