The “pseudo-satellite” that can continuously fly at high altitude: the domestic large-scale solar unmanned aerial vehicle “Venental 50” successfully made its maiden flight
“Venental” large-scale solar-powered UAV is an important achievement of the aviation industry’s technological innovation, an important measure for the aviation industry to implement “green aviation” and “dual-carbon goals”, and a concrete implementation of the original mission of “serving the country with aviation and strengthening the country with aviation”. reflect. The successful maiden flight is also the practical action of the aviation personnel to implement the strategy of strengthening the country through science and technology to welcome the victory of the Party’s 20th National Congress.
The aircraft is the first large-scale high-altitude and low-speed UAV developed by the aviation industry, the first large-scale UAV with a dual-fuselage layout, and the first all-electric large-scale UAV platform with solar energy as the only power source. The aircraft is a “pseudo-satellite” that can continuously fly at high altitudes. It uses efficient, clean, green, and environmentally friendly solar energy and can stay in the air for a long time to perform high-altitude reconnaissance, forest fire monitoring, atmospheric environment monitoring, and geographic mapping. , communication relay and other tasks.
The successful first flight has laid a solid foundation for the development and model approval of large-scale solar drones in the aviation industry. It will further promote the development of key technologies in my country’s new energy field, composite material field, and flight control field, and enhance my country’s development in the near space and ocean. The ability to perform tasks in the open sea. The aviation industry will take this opportunity to face the market and demand, seize the opportunity, take advantage of the situation, accelerate technological innovation, increase investment in innovation research and development, comprehensively accelerate the development of large-scale solar drones, and continue to lead the industry’s independent innovation and development.
