United Arab Emirates (UAE). Abu Dhabi. Unmanned Systems Exhibition (UMEX 2020). The Garmousha drone, made by ADASI, a subsidiary of the UAE government-owned conglomerate Edge, was for the first time on on display at UMEX 2020. It is its first locally made vertical-takeoff-and-landing drone. The Garmousha drone is a light military aircraft designed to carry about 100-kilogram payloads. It has a 6-hour endurance, or 150 kilometers. It’s also equipped with a high-definition camera. The drone can be used to detect gas pipeline leaks, survey infrastructure, and perform search-and-rescue operations. Its advanced capabilities are expected to reduce the overall cost of operations and allow militaries to save manned helicopters for critical missions. The Garmousha can simultaneously carry a wide variety of payloads, including a stabilized electro-optical sensor for day and night intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance missions. Additional advanced technologies can be integrated onto the system for either commercial or military use. UAVs are a component of an unmanned aircraft system (UAS); which include a UAV, a ground-based controller, and a system of communications between the two. An unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) (or uncrewed aerial vehicle, commonly known as a drone) is an aircraft without a human pilot on board and a type of unmanned vehicle. The flight of UAVs may operate with various degrees of autonomy: either under remote control by a human operator or autonomously by onboard computers. A few men wear traditional white thobes. A thawb (thobe, dishdasha, kandora) is an ankle-length garment, usually with long sleeves, similar to a robe, kaftan or tunic, commonly worn in the Arabian Peninsula. The headdress is called ghutrah. The United Arab Emirates (UAE) is a country in Western Asia at the northeast end of the Arabian Peninsula. 24.02.2020  © 2020 Didier Ruef
