TOMSK, Sep 27 – RIA Tomsk. Aviation site named after Valery Chkalov in the Tomsk region will become the first base operating centre for maintenance of unmanned aerial systems (UAS), sites in Kolpashevo, Bakchar, Kargasok, and Kedrovy will also be adapted for drones, Acting Deputy Governor for Economics Natalya Nemtseva told reporters.

Earlier it was reported that since 2018, the Taiga federal project has been implemented in the Tomsk region, which envisages the creation of a pilot cargo delivery area and other tasks using unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) in the region. In August 2021, it became known about the plans to create a base at the Chkalov airfield near Tomsk to implement the project: a single control room, from which the UAVs will be monitored, controlled and commanded.

"Here (at the Chkalov aviation site in the Tomsk region) a unified control room of the pilot area will be organized for monitoring and control of unmanned aircraft systems in the region, which will allow in the future to work out technologies of integration of UAS in a single airspace with manned aviation," Nemtseva said.

According to her, the pilot area operator will be a specially created organization in the region, OOO "Regional operator "Unmanned systems", its founders are OOO "Systems. Technologies. Communications", Tomsk State University of Control Systems and Radioelectronics and OOO SibAeroCraft.

Nemtseva noted that the next stage of creating a network of base operating centres in the experimental area will be the adaptation of landing sites in Kolpashevo, Bakchar and Kargasok villages and Kedrovy.

"In each case, the specification of the required additional infrastructure support for unmanned aircrafts will be selected based on the territorial and climatic characteristics of the working routes," acting deputy governor clarified.

Earlier it was also reported that a private airfield named after Valery Chkalov was opened near Berezkino village in the Tomsk region, which belongs to aircraft building company SibAeroCraft. It has taken over all intraregional flights while the runway of the Tomsk airport is being repaired.
