A1-CM Furia

The UAS A1-CM “Furia” has been developed and manufactured by LLC SPC Athlon Avia since 2014. During this time, more than 100 systems of various modifications have been produced for the needs of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, the National Guard of Ukraine, and the Security Service of Ukraine. In 20192020, the UAS passed a full spectrum of state tests and was adopted by the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

Since 2014 the system is widely used during the Joint Forces Operation in eastern Ukraine to conduct aerial reconnaissance and artillery fire adjustment.

The long flight endurance and the long-range of the command line make it possible to carry out tasks at a tactical depth up to 50 kilometers.

The system consists of the three unmanned aerial vehicles, three daytime payloads, and two nighttime payloads equipped with thermal imagers.

Three UAVs inside the system and a wide set of spare parts provide high combat readiness and fast recovery in the battlefield conditions.

Our company is constantly working to improve the system and provides a full range of services for technical maintenance, repair, and training of the system operators.
