the pace of development, the quality, and level of technology is staggering. After everything Serbs have suffered since 1990 this is a point of of great national pride.

Most curious to see where this "jet aircraft" project goes. It's been maybe the biggest Industrial dream of Serbia to rejoin the elite list of the word's jet aircraft manufacturers, even if it's a turbo-prop for now.

The second Southeast Europe Aviation Summit (SEAS), held in Belgrade, Serbia, on 8 and 9 March, saw the unveiling of three new innovative unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) currently under development by Belgrade-based Composite Technology Team (CTT).

Chief among these was a high-altitude pseudo satellite (HAPS) named Pupin after the Serbian-American scientist Mihajlo Pupin. A solar-powered UAV designed to fly at altitudes of 20,000 m, Pupin is intended to stay airborne for months while carrying various payloads, such as telecommunications equipment and surveillance sensors.

“We are one of only five companies worldwide that are currently working on developing HAPS and we hope that very soon we will begin testing our system in order to prove the concept and proceed with the follow-on development of Pupin for executing a wide variety of military and civilian missions,” Petar Matunovic, CTT aerospace engineer and CEO told Jane’s at SEAS.

Matunovic explained that CTT is looking to partner with reliable companies from the aviation industry to further boost its work on Pupin as well as the company’s other two ongoing UAV projects: the NT155 and the NT161 (the NT designations are a tribute to the Serbian-American scientist Nikola Tesla).

Presented in model form at SEAS, the NT155 is a medium-altitude long-endurance (MALE) UAV with an airframe made entirely from advanced composites. This allows a complex aerodynamic shape and light weight while offering the structural strength required to facilitate wing-mounted hardpoints for weapons, electro-optical payloads, or auxiliary fuel tanks. The system is still in the design phase but is expected to have a maximum take-off weight (MTOW) of 1,000 kg, a cruising speed of 140 km/h, and an operational endurance of at least 16 hours.

US interested in ALAS C

The Army Eyes Getting Into The Ship Killing Business With This Cruise Missile

In November 2017, the Army also expressed an interest in buying the Serbian Advanced Light Attack System’s coastal defense variant, or ALAS-C, though it’s not clear whether those purchases would be for its own use or for foreign military sales. In 2013, the United Arab Emirates announced their intention to team up with the manufacturer EDePro, by way of the Serbia’s state-run Yugoimport SDPR arms broker, to build a light truck-mounted launcher using the 6x6 Nimr chassis.

ALAS-C is wire-guided, but has an impressive range for a missile of this type, able to hit targets between 15 and 30 miles away. It has a man-in-the-loop guidance system where an actual operator steers it on its target in the terminal phase by way of an infrared camera in the weapon’s nose.

The Israelis have been pioneers of this concept, which improves the accuracy, especially against moving targets and gives an actual person the ability to abort the attack very late in the missile’s flight in case of concerns about collateral damage or civilian casualties. ALAS at its core is actually very similar to Israel's
Spike-ER anti-tank missile, but has considerably greater range.

If the Army did procure ALAS-C or a system like it, though it has relatively small warhead, it would offer another way of destroying smaller boats or landing craft. This level of anti-ship system could be useful for defending against more limited threats in constrained waterways, such as Russian missile-armed corvettes in the Baltic Sea or Black Sea or small Iranian watercraft and mining ships in the Strait of Hormuz.

With a combination of NSM, anti-ship ATACMS or new Deep Strike missiles, and a short-range system such as ALAS-C, the Army could field a tiered, mobile anti-ship defense system that can engage a variety of different maritime threats. These systems could offer defense in depth at existing locations or the option of rapidly deploying the most appropriate weapon in case of a particular contingency.

The Army, along with its sister services, will almost certainly continue to iron out the exact requirements and concepts of operations for the different weapon systems in the coming months. As the number of potential threats continue to grow, the service won't be able to wait too long to begin procuring and fielding this long neglected, but increasingly important capability.

We Achieved A Historic Record

“In 2017, Krušik achieved the best results in its 79-year history. Revenue was about USD100 million and profit about RSD 1 billion. More than 90 percent of Krušik’s profits come from exports, and our products are sold in over 70 countries worldwide.

Krušik’s largest customers are from North America, the Middle East and Africa”, confirmed Krušik Director Mladen Petković, who has run the company for over four years, in an interview with CorD.

Krušik’s average annual revenue growth rate since I have led the company has been 80%, so in 2017 revenues were 8.7 times greater than in 2013 when the company had a loss of RSD 1 billion. In a few years, more precisely from 2014 until today, we have turned a billion dinar deficit into a billion dinar surplus, which best reflects our business and is a great satisfaction both for management and for all the staff. Since 2014 we have employed 1,700 new workers, 657 in 2017 alone.

Krušik is a global player, judging from the 70 countries to which it exports. Are you satisfied with the competitiveness of your products and the speed at which your company follows new trends, developments and the demands of its international clients?

A value of USD 240 million in signed contracts alone shows that global demand for our products is satisfactory. We are constantly working on modernising existing products and creating new ones based on new technologies. Establishment of serial production of parts of the missile programme has significantly influenced Krušik’s position on the world market. Engagement of our full capacity is guaranteed until 2020.

Rest on:

Can you post separately the details of all the Bullet Proof vests and Helmets produced by Serbia
No need for a new topic, there is already this one. Balistic protection in Serbia is mainly produced by Mile Dragic and from recently Yumco. Yugoimport is also producing ballistic plates, hard armor inserts... There are also some other smaller companies.

You can see Mile Dragic products here:
https://www.armyequipment.com/en/products/ballistic-products

Yumco until recently was just a large uniform producer, but government invested money in to opening new factory which will produce ballistic vests, plate carriers, helmets.... Main product so far is set of equipment under name KZBO-17 (Ballistic vest, plate carrier, knee and elbow protectors...) for the Serbian army.

thanks, this is an important development to give the existing systems mobility.

I see they removed the IR guided surface to Air missiles on this vehicle, do you know if they still plan to pursue that as part of Pasars package?

https://defence-blog.com/army/serbi...se-system-continues-comprehensive-trials.html

Also: interesting article on Novi Avion

https://nationalinterest.org/blog/b...-attempt-build-its-very-own-jet-fighter-25366

with info I never knew before, like

1) the Novi Avion project was heavily loaded with Dassault Aviation technology, right down to it's SNECMA M88 turbofan.
2) the Mig-29 was chosen as interim figther and was tested against Mirage 2000 . The Mig was chosen and considered superior to the French fighter (if anyone has any more info on this please share) .
3) if the country had not disintegrated, many of the technology we see today in Rafael would have been used in this project. Unfortunately, France betrayed and attacked Yugoslavia, possibly connected to the line above?

so much we don't know, hopefully someone writes a book someday
