To maintain security of Winter Olympics 2014 in Sochi, Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs will order an air reconnaissance system equipped with unmanned helicopters, reports Interfax referring to Dmitry Sadovy, chief engineer for unmanned systems at the ministry's aircraft center.

According to Sadovy, in 2013 Russian Ministry of Interior Affairs will purchase several systems of this kind; each of them consists of two unmanned helicopters Horizon Air S-100 and a ground-based (or ship-based) control post.

Helicopters Horizon Air S-100 made by JSC Horizon (Rostov, Russia) jointly with Austrian company Schiebel can be operated in any weather conditions, day and night, on land and at sea. Takeoff weight of the vehicle is 34 kg; operating radius is up to 200 km; endurance is up to 10 hours.
