The model ONE 150 of Primoco UAV, a lightweight hi-tech airframe, is fitted with a 30 or a 50 HP engine, providing it with up to 10 hours of endurance during its flights. The UAV is also equipped with an advanced avionics system, an autopilot system, and an encrypted communication system (working via radio or satellite data link, enabling it to stream HD video in real time).

The aircraft is designed in a way that enables the crew to be ready to take-off within 30 minutes after their arrival to the airstrip. And the lightweight design and high performance of the UAV mean that it needs less than 300 metres of runway for its take-off. The UAV systems deliver automatic take-off and landing, as well as fully automatic mission plans.

Therefore, the Primoco UAV's are highly capable and professional aircraft, certified for day and night operations, and for flights in poor weather conditions or with higher wind speeds. In addition to that, the HD and Infrared (IR) cameras provide clear and accurate imaging, both day and night, of the real situation, and advanced functions (including automatic tracking of moving or static objects) are standard features of the whole system.

The wingspan of the UAV is of 4.85 m, while its length is of 3.65 m, and its height is of 1.25 m. It has a maximum take-off weight of 150 kg and a maximum payload of 30 kg. It can reach ranges of up to 200 km and distances of up to 500 km. Its cruising speed is of 100 - 180 km/h and its endurance is of 10 hours. And, in addition to these characteristics, this UAV can reach altitudes of up to 3.300 m.

This UAV can be used either for commercial uses or for governmental applications. As government applications, there are security and intelligence missions (long range monitoring as the main purpose), coastal surveillance, border protection, and search and rescue (SAR) operations.
