The state defence industrial concern Ukroboronprom continues to develop in accordance with the current needs of the current situation in Ukraine. The latest development is the VPM SF-1 sapper "pencil". Now the concern's engineers are working on the remote control of the SF-1 airframe using drones.
"Thanks to its exothermic powder mixture, it effectively burns through the metal shells of explosive objects such as ammunition. This causes the explosive to burn out. Such a pencil can be used for demining territories," Ukroboronprom.
Ukroboronprom is a certified mine action operator in Ukraine. The centre for humanitarian demining also operates on the basis of the enterprise, which was accredited in 2010 as a provider of mine action. The CHD cooperates with UNMAS and the UN.
