A Russian state corporation has created kites to monitor locations and relay communications signals.

"The kites can reach an altitude of several kilometers relaying communications for warships and ground units. They can also be used to carry video and meteorological observation as well as transfer loads in rough terrain, through mountains, rivers and ravines," the United Instrument Manufacturing Corporation (UIMC) said in a statement on Tuesday.

According to UIMC, the kites' design ensures their flight stability even in stormy weather, Xinhua news agency reported. 

There are kites of different dimensions and capacity, ranging from 30 to 250 sq.metres to solve various problems.

"The idea to create a kite has interested the military customers for a long time. However, only now it has been realised technically. Our experts managed to create special heavy-duty materials to withstand strong winds, backache and cuts," the statement added.
