“Ukropchik” – a new Ukrainian kamikaze drone with impressive capabilities

Calheon, a volunteer-based company, is a drone manufacturer in Ukraine. From its humble beginnings as a group of enthusiasts, the company has grown into a professional team with more than ten employees, producing FPV drones of various sizes – 7, 8, 10, and 13 inches. These vehicles are equipped with advanced technical characteristics that meet the challenging conditions of the modern battlefield.

The company has recently expanded its operations to the international level by signing a memorandum of understanding on joint drone production in the European Union. The new product, called Ukropchyk (Cotton), is characterized by improved technical characteristics and resistance to electronic systems. These drones are not just technical tools, but also reliable helpers in the fight for sovereignty.

Thanks to the integration of machine vision, the new Ukropchik models can perform homing, significantly increasing the efficiency of the tasks. The company has also signed a number of agreements with local manufacturers to certify these drones as barrage munitions, which will allow it to supply a ready-to-use and certified drone with BC.

The Ukropchik drones already have the appropriate technical specifications, certificates and approval from the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine. This is not just a success of a commercial project, but a contribution to the common right to protect the country. “Calheon continues to evolve, demonstrating how technology can be an important frontline in ensuring national security.
