The Chinese began to produce freight drones

The Chinese have begun production Assembly of a cargo drone called the AT200. Details shared by the representatives of the company — developer Star UAV System, writes Jane’s International Defence Review. The unmanned aerial vehicle has successfully passed all tests and is ready to carry cargo around the world — every drone "comes" mobile control point.

AT200 built on a platform nine-seater turboprop single-engine aircraft P-750 XSTOL manufactured in New Zealand. Maximum takeoff weight is 3.4 tonnes, the machine can carry loads of up to 1.5 tons. The maximum range of its flight is 2.2 thousand kilometers, the altitude — 6.1 thousand kilometers. Flying at speeds of up to 313 kilometers per hour.

To take off, the drone enough strip with a length of only 200 meters — this makes it possible to operate in the most different areas. No wonder their interest already expressed command of the people's liberation army of China. At the same time, the project customer is a major Chinese courier company SF Express: under contract she has to put three such drones before the end of 2019.

It is Noteworthy that since the first test to the serial Assembly in less than two years — your flight AT200 made at the end of 2017. Apparatus with the load flew at an altitude of more than 5 thousand meters when the wind is strong and coped with this challenge. Flights (including unloading) took 4.5 hours.

The challenges of the new unmanned aircraft — provision of food and necessary manufactured goods for people living in remote areas and offshore. According to experts, such devices will significantly save money to the carriers, and simultaneously increase the frequency of flights.

What do you think, what other purposes can be used for such a drone? Your bold assumption, write in the comments and we can discuss many other news science and technology!
