A ground drone was created in Ukraine “

Research and production enterprise “Ukrainian unmanned technologies” (UBT) is showcasing its latest advances in unmanned ground technology at the defense and security exhibition Eurosatory 2024.

Among the main – universal mobile platform (UMP) “Ravlyk”, a modular and reliable solution designed for various military applications.

The path of the UBT began in 2016, when a team of engineers and programmers developed a remote-controlled combat module for the 12.7-mm NSVT machine gun specifically for operations in the ATO zone. By 2019, they had improved their design, creating a new version of the mobile platform with improved drive systems and updated software, directly responding to feedback from military operators. In 2023, the company took significant steps by establishing a research and production enterprise, focusing on the further development and improvement of existing platforms. One of the key innovations is the development of new shock modules for various weapons, including the Browning M2 machine gun and the MK 19 grenade launcher.

UMZ “Ravlyk” is distinguished by its modular design, which allows it to be adapted to various mission requirements without the need for structural changes. This flexibility extends to the installation of various weapons modules, ranging from machine guns with a caliber of up to 12.7 mm to grenade launchers with a caliber of up to 40 mm. This adaptability ensures that the platform can be quickly reconfigured to meet new needs on the battlefield.

The Snail UMP. has several key advantages:

  • resistance to radio-electronic warfare, to ensure the reliability of communication in an aggressive environment;
  • digital control channel, which provides safe and accurate remote control;< /li>
  • enhanced observation capabilities, allowing it to remain at observation posts for up to 96 hours with minimal thermal signatures, reducing the risk of detection.

In addition, it has been tested and certified by the National Scientific – a research institute for testing and certification of weapons and military equipment in 2023, which confirms its effectiveness and reliability.

In the summer of 2023, the UMP-1 "Ravlyk" passed the rigorous range tests of the 5th separate amphibious assault brigade in Kostyantynivka, Donetsk region. Reviews of these tests were extremely positive, emphasizing the effectiveness and reliability of the platform in real combat conditions.
