Russian Firm KRET Unveils Advanced Electric Motors for UAVs

Concern Radioelectronic Technologies (KRET) of the Rostec State Corporation has announced the development and initiation of production for modern electric motors designed specifically for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).

The initial batch of these electric motors is currently undergoing factory testing, marking a significant stride in Russia's pursuit of technological advancements in the drone industry.

Crafted entirely from domestic components, the electric motors for drones were brought to fruition by specialists from the Ulan-Ude Instrument-Making Production Association. This production marks a new direction for the facility, focusing on brushless, synchronous, and stepper electric motors, along with generators, capitalizing on the plant's capacities and competencies.

During an official visit, Dmitry Peskov, the special representative of the President of the Russian Federation for digital and technological development, and General Director of the ANO Platform NTI, visited the production facilities to assess the capabilities of the enterprise in manufacturing engines, starters, and generators for drones.

In comparison to foreign counterparts, KRET's electric motors boast reduced weight and higher efficiency, allowing for the potential installation of more additional attachments on the drone. The design features of these motors also contribute to their longevity.

Vladimir Luchnikov, General Director of the Ulan-Ude Instrument-Making Production Association, highlighted the current development of four types of electric motors named after the Baikal winds: "Sarma," "Khius," "Barguzin," and "Kultuk," each varying in parameters, including power. For instance, the Sarma electric motor is reportedly capable of lifting a drone weighing up to 11 kilograms. Luchnikov emphasized the association's ability to create electric motors not only for UAVs but also for servos, promoting technological sovereignty and import independence.
