    Dubai Airshow 2011: Adcom unveils United 40 MALE UAV

    Abu Dhabi-based Adcom used the Dubai Airshow to unveil its latest creation – the United 40 MALE UAV. The United 40 uses an unusual biplane configuration and a hybrid turbine-electric engine to enhance its endurance. The aircraft on display in Dubai is the first prototype and Ali Al Dhaheri, general designer and CEO at Adcom, said he hoped to fly the aircraft in the next three to four weeks.

    'With most UAVs with a pusher propeller, the centre of gravity is towards the rear of the aircraft,' said Al Dhaheri, 'But with the two-wing configuration, we keep the centre of gravity in the middle of the aircraft. ‘The United 40 uses a patented design wing giving it a glide ratio of 1:43. That’s four times more than the glide ratio of the MQ-9 Reaper,' he added.

    Al Dhaheri claimed that the wings allow the aircraft sustain cruise flight at a one-sixth of the aircraft's full engine power of 120 hp, provided by the Rotax 914 engine. The power of the electric motor, which is capable of producing 80 hp can be combined with the engine to give the aircraft 200 hp, boosting take-off performance in hot and high conditions.

    The United 40, which has been named in celebration of the United Arab Emirates 40th anniversary, is also designed to be armed, capable of carrying up to eight Namrod air-to-ground missiles. The missiles feature fold out wings that deploy when the weapons are ejected from the aircraft. The weapons are carried on a rotary launcher.

    Al Dhaheri says one of the design priorities was to keep design clean to improve aerodynamics – as a result even the aircraft's EO/IR sensor is retractable. Control operations can be done by satellite or line-of-sight. Al Dhaheri claimed the aircraft could fly for several days, although company literature suggests a more conservative but no less impressive 25 hours. The aircraft is 11m long and has a wing span of 17.5m.




    If i had such a Big UAV with 3 Engines then i can too Stay over 100 Hours with over 200 Galons of Fuel.

    But what happens if no more Fuel is there ? And why 3 Engines ? Hybrid Engines ? Not Easy to Repair ,we see that in the History ,what Ferdinand Porsche has tried.


    IT´s not Flying ,it´s gliding !

    1 Can it fly ? YES
    2 Can it fire Missiles ? YES
    3 How will it be controlled through Satellite or not ? That bulge in the trunk means there is a satellite receiver.

    - Question:
    What do they mean by this? Did they mean the land control room?

    “It can carry 10 missiles on board, each one having a 60km range and 1,000kph speed,” said Ali Al Dhaheri, general designer and CEO of Adcom Systems. “It can fly over 100 hours without refuelling at a 30,000ft altitude. It is very reliable, has twin engines, six fly control units and over 400 channels of communications.” Designed for strategic missions such as border surveillance, battle damage assessment, intelligence preparation of battlefield, combat assessment and humanitarian aid, United 40 can take off with 2,000kg on board. If desired, it can also have up to 15 people on board."

    The answer is that it is far more capable and advanced than any UAV France and Russia have. For the USA, it's better in some specs.

    Arabic resources are saying that they are Serbia rockets. I believe it is changed now to Roketsan. there might be even the option with the two.

    It was a dealing between the local supplier (AlJabr, who is the initial builder of NIMR+Jordan) with the Serbia company. Now after NIMR is purchased by TAWAZUN, Roketsan rockets are introduced with all sizes.

    I edited yours not mine.
    That explains few things.
    The specs have been revealed recently in the exhibition and published by media and this is one, the specs were confirmed by the designer of the UAV in a press release and this is two, and he himself said that only USA and Israel have such tech.
    (Google translation)
    He said the company, which began its work in Abu Dhabi in 1988, he became production now thrown wide attention from many countries of the developed world, where the United States U.S. and Russia are seeking to produced the plane "Abhon - Union 40", because of its great potential to match its counterpart of the fineste quipment World.

    “It is the first one in the world to hunt UAVs. It has an advanced auto-tracking system, being capable of image tracking and downloading video to the user, and also capable of automatic engage and destroy operation.”

    A Hunter UAV ,we will see in the Future how it will Hunt´s.
