With a wingspan of 1.5 meters, the of a two- blade propeller -driven aircraft is relatively small, it is driven by an electric motor. The purpose is military intelligence in the near environment. The system is easily disassembled without tools and re-assembled to facilitate transport. It is ready for use within five minutes.
The UAV is launched by hand. The control is carried out autonomously by built-in GPS receiver on a prescribed flight path. The user is able to influence the flight of the ground control station. The video data is transmitted in real time and stored in the DV cassette. The data link determines the operational range, but this can be increased by means of a relay drone.
When the German army belong to each application system, two drones, a weather station and a handy ground control station for mission planning and flight control. This has the ability to control the autonomous Umfliegung of terrain obstacles can retrieve digital mission maps in 2D or 3D display and has the ability to image analysis and storage. The ground control station, has a weight of 17 kg, using the UHF band when transmitting and receiving the C-band. The entire system is easy to transport and carry, the drone itself is not easy to identify because of their small size by a small group. The sensor is interchangeable according to Bundeswehr, it can take color pictures in daytime and black and white images in twilight or use an infrared camera for night.
