The Skylark weighs a mere seven kilograms, and is equipped with state of the art cameras that provide visual intelligence of the area of the battlefield in which the battalion operates.

The new model of the Skylark has been developed by the Technology and Logistics Branch and the Ground Forces Weapons Department and is being supplied by Elbit Systems. Its integration in the field is expected to provide technological operational advantages, including the use of the Skylark's upgraded cameras. Furthermore, the UAV's communications system will soon be hooked up to the Ground Forces' overall command and control system.

The Ground Forces' vision is for every battalion to have an attached Skylark squad to provide field support. The Skylark Unit's responsibilities are also expected to grow to coincide with a significant expansion planned for the use of UAVs in the Ground Forces.
