Volunteers from Cherkasy and Kyiv developed a drone Marharyta. According to them, even the most advanced surveillance systems don’t see it, and if the GPS signal is blocked, the drone can still come back, Channel 5 reported.

It will take a year to work on the project. The drone can record the positions of army, but it can’t be seen even by the most advanced surveillance systems, the developers say.

“It’s a unique device, it works as an artillery controller and a long-distance scout. It’s a bird, that flies further and longer than the ones that are now used,” the developer under codename Master said.

According to him, when the GPS signal was blocked, not only did Marharyta return, but also completed the set route.

Serviceman under codename Krechet is writing a thesis on radio control. He emphasizes, that “the main idea is to save people’s lives. And the main task of these systems is to save people’s lives”.

At the moment Margaryta is being tested, and the volunteers announced a fund raising for the next project – Taras. It was named after a young scientist, developer of drones, who died untimely. It is planned that Taras system will include two drones, which will work together. They are to be called Hrim and Blyskavka (Ukrainian for Thunder and Lightning).
