Flyka – a startup from the SKOLKOVO innovation center presented a smaller prototype of the Flyka 1 - Flying Taxi.

The vehicle of the future will be a single-seat drone equipped with 22 engine blocks, capable of flying from 20 to 30 km. The maximum speed of such a taxi is 150 km/h, and the cruising speed is 110 km/h. The estimated cost of a flight hour will be $16 or approximately 1,240 rubles, but the cost will also depend on the cost of electricity.

Fixar is a Russian developer of unmanned aerial vehicles and original software. UAV FIXAR is used to optimize processes in solving problems of aerial photography, aerial laser scanning, monitoring of extended objects, and many other tasks.

The company presented a UAV with vertical take-off and landing, designed for small cargo delivery, chemical spraying, and aerial photography.


Babylon Management

Babylon Management is a research and production association for the development of technologies and mass production of advanced unmanned aerial vehicles.

At the exhibition, Babylon Management presented three models of UAVs, a multi-rotor type, an airplane type, and a miniature UAV with a single propeller that can descend into the earth's splits for photo and video shooting.

The purposes of the UAV system are tactical and operational monitoring from the air. Systems are used for monitoring the area and searching for people, for which a thermal imager is used.

AEROXO is a Russian design bureau.

The company introduced an unmanned tiltrotor that can take off vertically from any platform and stay in the air motionless as a helicopter, as well as travel long distances at the speed of an airplane. The aircraft can reach speeds of up to 150 km/h and stay in the air for up to 1 hour. The main tasks of this UAV are cargo delivery weighing up to 50 kg and aerial photography with various payloads.



Kronshtadt is a Russian company specializing in the development and production of high-tech products and solutions necessary for the creation, development, and safe operation of complex technical equipment in the air, at sea, and on land.

The company did not present unmanned aerial systems at this exhibition this year but presented the updated laser scanner (LIDAR), which is used on unmanned complexes. LIDAR equipped with 8 lasers that are installed on the UAV to create a 3D model of the terrain. In addition to the laser scanner, the company introduced a program for processing the received aerial photography data based on neural networks.

Folding Drone Unfurls in Fraction of a Second
Engineering teams around the world are putting significant time, effort and research dollars into the idea of using aerial drones in disaster relief scenarios. It makes a lot of sense: Drones are able to fly into dangerous or inaccessible locations and — outfitted with cameras and communications gear can provide reconnaissance imagery of a disaster site or even make initial contact with survivors.

UAV market set to double

UAV market set to double
While few would dispute that unmanned air systems have transformed military aviation during the past decade, it is looking increasingly certain that the coming 10 years will see huge change in unmanned air vehicles themselves. It would not be excessive to call the next couple of years a genuine watershed in the development of UAVs.
