Premiere of the new product developed by Aura Group of Companies — AURA 100, a helicopter-type UAV, first presented to the general public in early September at MAKS-2019, aroused great interest of both Russian and foreign visitors to the company’s booth.
Thanks to its endurance and take-off mass of hundreds of kilograms, AURA 100 UAV designed and manufactured by the company is an innovative solution that helps to create significant advantages in terms of operations quality in various fields. UAV is available in several modifications depending on its application sphere (logistics, agriculture, geophysics, monitoring, rescue operations). The vehicle is highly autonomous and can solve automatically such tasks as goods delivery to a remote site, monitoring of territories, etc. The device is equipped with a technical vision system, which subsequently will automatically find sites suitable for landing. Flight safety is enhanced by GNSS noise-protected antenna arrays. The developer is also working on the application of ADS-B technology, which will create an infrastructure involving the joint use of airspace by manned and unmanned aircraft of various manufacturers.
Within the framework of the exhibition, several contracts related to the implementation of AGC strategy have been signed with European companies, as well as agreements on cooperation have been reached with representatives of Russian and foreign enterprises, including the East European Air Transport Association (EEATA) and the East European Aviation Center (EEAC), FIDAE; further collaboration has been discussed with investment and technology corporations such as ADASI, BSS and several others.

We are satisfied with the first results, now we are actively continuing business communication with companies’ representatives, several MOUs have already been signed. Further to successful exposure of our new product at the event, decision has been made to participate as an exhibitor at Dubai Air Show, which will be held in the second half of November.
