The Ahmous drone boasts a service ceiling of 22,000 feet above mean sea level (MSL), ensuring a wide surveillance range. It is powered by a 145 HP reciprocating engine, enabling it to achieve a maximum speed of 250 km/hr. With a cruise speed ranging from 120 to 240 km/hr and a landing speed of 120 km/hr, the drone ensures operational flexibility and safety.

One of the key features of the Ahmous is its endurance, capable of up to 30 hours of continuous flight. This is complemented by a mission radius of over 100 km when equipped with a tracker antenna, providing extended line-of-sight (LOS) capabilities. The addition of external hardpoints for fuel tanks further enhances its range, making it suitable for long-duration missions.

The UAV is equipped with state-of-the-art EO/IR (Electro-Optical/Infrared) and SAR (Synthetic Aperture Radar) systems. These systems allow for high-resolution imaging and reconnaissance, essential for both military and civilian applications.

Offering versatility in operation, the Ahmous can be remotely piloted or set to fully autonomous flight, including automatic takeoff and landing. This adaptability is vital for diverse operational requirements. The drone also features redundant flight control surfaces, adding an extra layer of reliability and safety.

An optional second Ground Control Station (GCS) can be employed to further extend the drone's operational range. This feature highlights the UAV's adaptability to various mission requirements, ensuring effective coverage over extensive areas.
