Summary

 
The object and purpose of this research study is development of an unmanned aircraft launch system for the Navy and Russian Aerospace Forces, and possible export of the same to foreign customers. The system is designed to launch aircraft with full load of ordnance from the heavy aircraft-carrying cruiser “Admiral Flota Sovetskogo Soyuza Kuznetsov” as well as naval ships of similar design like INS Vikramaditya aircraft carrier (delivered under military technical cooperation program). The feasibility of an unmanned mobile launching system (MLS) has been reviewed at the Naval Scientific Committee with involvement of experts from Naval Shipbuilding & Armament as well as Naval Aviation research institutes. The following conclusions were drawn: the proposed mobile launching system is of ndisputable interest; the proposed idea should be implemented as part of efforts for further development of naval weapons and equipment; apart from aircraft carries the MLS can also be considered as an option for aircraft flying from permanent airfields. An application for invention has been filed with the Federal Institute of Industrial Property. The pre-requisite documents for negotiations on cooperation with foreign partners have been submitted to the relevant unit of Almaz-Antey Air and Space Defense Corporation. Turbojet engines commercially produced in Russia are suggested to be used for this mobile launch system. All factors described above should reduce financial outlays and, what is more important, cut down the time for improving the combat efficiency. Thus, it is concluded that MLS has a high export potential.
