 "Hummingbird" small unmanned reconnaissance aircraft, only 17 cm long

A drone similar to the "Black Hornet" micro drone was released by Xi'an MH Electronic Technology Co., Ltd. The small unmanned reconnaissance aircraft, called the Hummingbird, is only 17 centimeters long and weighs 35 grams.

 

Its developer, Xi'an-based private company MH, said it could transmit high-definition images or live footage over a distance of more than 2 kilometers. The unmanned aerial vehicle was on display at the Abu Dhabi International Defence Exhibition and Conference last week.

The Hummingbird drone is heavier than the Black Hornet, which is 10 centimeters long and 18 grams. The Black Hornet is manufactured by the Norwegian company Prox Dynamics and has been used by the US military since 2012. It can transmit images up to 400 meters away, although the operating time for both drones is similar, around 25 minutes. But the Hummingbird's battery can be replaced after a flight, unlike the Black Hornet which needs to be recharged.

 

They also have a similar combination of cameras that can take panoramic images from relatively high altitudes, and thermal cameras for night vision can be mounted on the Hummingbird and the latest model, the Black Hornet.

At the 15th Abu Dhabi International Defense Exhibition in February 2021, Xi'an MH Company brought the Hummingbird series of ultra-micro reconnaissance drones to the exhibition, which attracted the attention of the audience. Dynamics' bee drone.

The Hummingbird Ultra Micro UAV is ultra-light, ultra-small, and has good low-noise concealment. Its take-off weight is only about 35 grams, which is less than the weight of an egg. The total length including the tail rotor is 174 mm, and it is only as long as a pen. It can realize high-definition real-time image transmission, and the reliable image transmission distance is more than 2km under the condition of visibility. It adopts high-energy density lithium battery and the maximum flight time exceeds 25 minutes. It is a powerful tool for situational awareness and reconnaissance at the end of the battlefield.

The Hummingbird Ultra Micro UAV is equipped with 4 cameras, that is, a visible light and a thermal imaging camera are installed in the forward horizontal direction, and a visible light lens is installed in the 45-degree direction, which can realize the down-view panoramic image capture at a higher flight altitude. The down-view camera is used for optical flow horizontal positioning, and the four-way micro TOF lidar can effectively and intelligently avoid obstacles.

Compared to Blackhornet, hummingbirds fly safer and smarter. At the same time, the link function is also more powerful. It can support 1080p real-time video backhaul at most, and support the bee group network technology. Currently, it can support 16 aircraft formations. The ground station can be connected to a tactical command system such as ATAK, and the command center can remotely grasp the terminal information status of the battlefield in real time, improving the accuracy and efficiency of command and decision-making.
