In connection with the abnormal heat in the Moscow, Nizhny Novgorod, Smolensk, Ivanovo and Yaroslavl regions, military personnel of the unmanned aviation units of the tank army of the Western Military District (ZVO) are monitoring fires near military facilities.

Reconnaissance flights are carried out in order to detect possible sources of fire in time, and then prevent further spread of fire.

Aerial reconnaissance is carried out at an altitude of up to 1000 meters from unmanned systems “Orlan-10” and “Eleron-3” with thermal imagers and video cameras installed on them. The use of unmanned aircraft significantly reduces the time required to obtain reliable data and significantly helps in coordinating the work of ground teams equipped with fire extinguishing equipment.

In total, over 100 servicemen of the ZVO tank formation were involved in the monitoring.
