MOBILE ILS CALIBRATION SYSTEM CARRIED OUT BY TSURU ROBOTICS DRONE TESTED SUCCESSFULLY

Kursir LLC. (Skolkovo resident) completed tests of its innovative ILS calibration system installed on the drone, created by our company, in Noyabrsk (Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Okrug).
Kursir developed a mobile device for operational checks of airport systems, responsible for the safety of the landing. Today, the verification of radio equipment for flights around the world are carried out with the help of specialized aircraft laboratories, which makes verification very expensive. In Russia, airports should carry such tests once a year. The new system allows to carry out low-cost inspections every day.
The project uses Tsuru Robotics drone. The size of the UAV is 1 m, weight is 3 kg, and flight duration is up to 50 minutes. Kursir installed measuring complex that weighs about a kilogram as a payload. Measurements of the direction finder ARP-75 and landing system SP-75 parameters were taken. Tests confirmed the possibility of measuring the necessary parameters of landing systems with the device.
It should be noted that such light measuring systems to check the airports do not exist in the world yet.
The drone involved in the complex is a modification of the Tsuru Robotics security drones developed by our company.

TSURU ROBOTICS HELD MINI-EVENT

For the first time our company held a show of drones in a very limited space: the performance took place in one of the rooms of Moscow apartments. Flight space was an area of 4×4 m, and height limited to a three-meter ceiling. Three small
drones (20 cm diagonal) with scattered led lighting participated in the show. Specially created video three walls projection accompanied the performance. Music also was designed purposely for the 2.5-minute show.

Besides, for the first time, the positioning system cameras were located on the same line, not just in the same plane.

SXT FLYING ARENA OPENED IN SKOLKOVO TECHNOPARK

Skoltech-Tsuru Flying Arena, opened in Technopark, is the largest Russian indoor flight zone for unmanned aerial vehicles.

Skolkovo Technopark provided the space for the zone. The area of SxT Arena is 260 sqm, ceiling’s height is seven meters. This Arena with the preinstalled local positioning system is located on the ground floor of Technopark. The arena is a training zone, where, in addition to testing algorithms, you can conduct a variety of rehearsals for different types of drone group behavior. We’re developing new types of drones group behavior in the Arena in collaboration with Skoltech ISR Lab.
In addition to current work, Skoltech ISR Lab and Tsuru robotics will conduct summer practice for students. Students will be able to participate in the implementation of the company’s projects, or carry out their own, gaining practical knowledge and skills of drone control.

MOBILE DRONES SHOW BEGINS TOUR

We successfully implemented our latest project — a mobile show complex for the company FabFuture. The complex can be installed for advertising purposes in areas with large concentrations of people — in shopping malls, airports, etc. Six drones automatically perform a specified mission within a limited space. The frame, inside which the drones fly has a cubic shape. The diagonal dimension of the drones is 250 mm, and frame size is 3 m. After completing the 7-minute flight program, the drones land and are ready for takeoff again after quick batteries replacement. Show complex includes drones, camera positioning system, frame, and computer. The whole system takes three to four hours to build and configure.

The customer plans to hold shows in different Russian cities. More information on project page.

TSURU ROBOTICS DRONES PLAYED BASKETBALL

Our company in collaboration with Interactive Lab and “Pitch group” presented one of the show programs during the match of all stars of the VTB United League in St. Petersburg. Our devices broke at least the same amount of applause from the audience, as the best Europe basketball players in the “Yubileyny” sports Palace.

Tsuru Robotics is the only company in Russia that creates autonomous drone shows while constantly improving the program. For the first time in our country, a group choreography of 12 drones was carried out. The vehicles started the show during the time-out between the third and fourth quarters of the main match and performed more than three-minute “dance”. Large drones were “dressed” in costumes, stylized as basketball balls. SIBUR and Wilson designed “Ecoball” – basketball balls made of orange-and-blue recycled plastic specifically for this match. Led lighting costumes of drones, shimmering, repeated these colors.

Anton SOLOMIN, a basketball columnist for “Match TV”: “It was terrifically beautiful and even a little scary! The rise of the machines has never been so close. This show was really unexpected for most of the guests. The performance was, certainly, unusual – no one has seen this before”.
