英国皇家海军长期以来一直在寻求各种无人机和相关系统,以协助和改善其部队在世界各地的行动,但现在其专业航空技术部门更进一步,终于生产了一款自己的无人机。

The UK’s Royal Navy has long pursued a variety of UAVs and related systems to assist and improve operations of its forces around the world, but now its specialized aviation tech unit has taken a step further by finally producing a drone of its very own. 

皇家军队近日自豪地宣布来自其700X海军航空中队的工程师已经开始他们重达20千克的四旋翼飞机进行初步试验,他们亲切地称之为“海象”。在无人机方面不断地研究是为了将该无人机从一个精致的自制飞机变成一个经测试验证的飞机,能够用于海军单位执行任务的新型航空解决方案。

The Royal Navy proudly revealedrecently that engineers from its 700X Naval Air Squadron had begun initial trials of their 20 kilogram quadcopter they’ve affectionately dubbed “Walrus.” Continued work on the UAV will seek to develop it from its sophisticated DYI state toward a test-proven craft that may be used in preparing new aerial solutions for mission objectives naval units have.

700X海军中队位于康沃尔郡西南部蜥蜴半岛的卡尔德罗斯,(X代表实验性)它的任务时监视新型无人机遥控航空技术的发展。该组织正在寻找方法使用无人机完成传统飞机所不能履行的皇家海军和其他英国武装部队职责任务或者传统飞机需要更高成本完成的任务,与行业合作伙伴开发调整无人机及其运营系统。

Located in Culdrose on Cornwall’s southwestern Lizard Peninsula, the 700X Naval Air Squadron (“X”representing experimental) is tasked with overseeing the development of new, uncrewed, remotely piloted aerial tech. In finding ways to use drones to fulfill duties for Royal Navy and other UK armed forces that traditional craft either cannot do, or can carry out at much higher costs, the unit has worked on and adapted UAVs and operating systems from industry partners.

700X海军航空中队通过其新自制的海象无人机首次系留控制飞行,打算将其用作内部工具,以评估和准备第三方空中系统供皇家海军和其他部队部署。

In putting its new, self-conceived Walrus drone through its first tethered control flights, 700X Naval Air Squadron is looking to use it as an in-house tool to evaluate and ready third-party aerial systems for deployment by Royal Navy and other forces.

监管海象测试的中尉Kristian Lilley在皇家海军公报中表示,“这是我们获得军事航空管理局认可制造商地位的重要一步,海象无人机以高航空标准制造,专门用于传感器和其他传感载荷的测试,它将作为我们独立的测试评价平台。因为这是我们所建造的,所以我们了解这个系统并知晓其性能。”

“It’s an important step in our recognition of endorsed manufacturer status with the Military Aviation Authority,”Lieutenant Kristian Lilley, who oversees Walrus testing, said in a Royal Navy communiqué. “Built to high aviation standards, the Walrus will be used specifically as a testbed for sensors and other sensitive payloads. It will be our independent test and evaluation platform. As we’ve built it, we know the system and exactly what it’s capable of.”

近年来,700X海军航空中队正在努力开发皇家海军的无人机系统,提供船舶之间的长途货物运输,前线军队的快速血液供应,甚至协助营救落水水手。其研究也对重型无人机的选择提供了指导意见,促进三明治岛企鹅的人口普查工作。

In recent years the 700X Naval Air Squadron has worked on drone systems for the Royal Navy that can provide long-haul cargo deliveries to or between ships, speed blood supplies to frontline forces, and even assist rescue of overboard sailors. Its research has also guided the selection of heavy-lift drones, and facilitated census operations of Sandwich Island penguins. 

以第二次世界大战可以在水上起飞、降落和闲置的老式飞机命名,新生海象无人机的一般概念已经被700X 海军航空中队工程师无视了一段时间。

Named after World War II vintage planes that could takeoff, land, and idle on water, the general concept of the nascent Walrus UAV has been kicked around by 700X Naval Air Squadron engineers for a while.

但是现在无人机的第一部原型机已经组装完成,并在进行初步试验。Lilley表示它将变成皇家海军研究和无人机部署流程不可或缺的一部分。

But now the first prototype of the drone is assembled and going through its initial testing, Lilley says it will become an integral part of the Royal Navy’s research and drone deployment process. 

“我们现在正在在一个受控的环境下使用严格的制度对该无人机进行测试...并且我们相信该试验能够正确且安全地运行,我们可能会在新年进行第一次试飞。该技术已经存在了几年了,但是我们看到它在不断发展,尤其是规模化发展。毋庸置疑,它会继续存在并将在我们的生活中不断发挥其作用。”

“We’re now testing it using a rigorous regime here in a controlled environment…(and) when we’re confident it’s operating correctly and safely, we’ll conduct our first flying tests, probably in the new year,” Lilley said. “This technology has been around for a few years, but we’ve really seen it expand recently, particularly in scale. There’s no doubt that it’s here to stay and will increasingly play a role in all our lives.”
