According to the tasks of the past exercises, the operators of the UAVs “Orlan-10” and “Eleron” had to carry out reconnaissance of key objects at an altitude of up to 1,000 meters in order to avoid detection. After the discovery of the field headquarters, firepower and a fleet of military equipment of the “enemy”, the servicemen began to escort the reconnaissance units and search for the “enemy” sentinel groups, hiding, using the functions of a gyro-stabilized television camera with a thermal imager mounted on a drone.

The drills of UAV operators were held as part of the final control check for the summer training period. To successfully pass the check, the servicemen had to fulfill the standard for the deployment and launch of the UAV within a certain time, as well as ensure that the reconnaissance operation was completed in no more than 2 hours.

In total, about 100 servicemen of the combined arms army of the Western Military District took part in the exercises.
