Abstract. The purpose of this paper is to review current and future tube launch UAV class "micro» (μ), and outline their applications and directions of scientific and technical search.
Methodology. The paper used available scientific and technical literature and data producers. An overview of common UAVs
different wind patterns and are their main characteristics.The main features of tube launch UAV: aerodynamic scheme "aircraft";
way transportation and launch - an airtight container with a catapult arranged; target load - digital or video camera; way of
landing - parachute mode control - automatic or semiautomatic.
Results of work. The main characteristics of tube launch UAV. The analysis of tactical and technical characteristics of existing
designs. The need for further research in this direction. Analyzed aerodynamic scheme "tandem" and justified its use. A brief
analysis of the characteristics of the prototype "Sokil-2" and outlines directions for further research. Formulated critical scientific
and technical issues potrubuyut solution: start, landing system, control system.
Field of application. Analytical review can be used in the formation requirements and the general outlines tube launch UAV
Keywords: unmanned aerial vehicle, tube launch, unmanned aircraft " Sokil - 2".
