To reduce the cost of work on active impact on clouds, the Agency developed the SAG-26V aircraft aerosol complex, which can be installed on aircraft of various types, including light aircraft. The SAG-26V aircraft aerosol system (Fig. 1) is designed to launch standard PV-26-01 squibs and SAG-26 generators. The creation of ice-forming aerosol routes is provided in automatic mode, with the inclusion of 1 to 4 active elements in a series at the same time, with intervals between series from 10 to 360 seconds.

One control panel (Fig. 2) ensures the operation of 1 to 12 cassettes (beams) equipped with 32 to 384 SAG-26 generators or PV-26-01 cartridges. The remote control is located in the cockpit and allows the operator to launch singly and in series. The control panel is designed to work with both SAG-26V and SAG-26KS aircraft aerosol systems.
