A Russian firm is making preparations to introduce an all-new off-aerodrome transport drone at MAKS-2023 International Aviation and Space Salon scheduled to take place this July.
Organizers of the show said on their Telegram channel that development and use of unmanned aerial systems will be among key themes of the event.
There will be a global debut of an off-aerodrome transport drone developed by one of leading Russian aircraft producers, organizers said, without giving further details.
"Development of unmanned aerial system has become the main trend of the decade for the domestic aviation industry. Drones enjoy demand in many sectors of the national economy. They are needed to support national security. Russian developers have already created a wide product range and new equipment efforts are intensifying progressively. The MAKS air show will be the venue to demonstrate looking-forward developments and the floor to discuss problems the industry community faces," chief executive of Aviasalon company Alexander Levin said.
The 16th MAKS 2023 air show will be held in Zhukovsky, Moscow Region, from July 25 to 30, 2023.
