The V-Bat is a vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) designed and developed by the American company Martin UAV. This type of UAV can be used to conduct a wide range of military missions such as aerial patrol, search and detection of targets, surveillance, shipboard operation, aerial mapping, urban monitoring, autonomous delivery, and placement of payloads.

The V-BAT is designed to operate from very small spaces on ships, land, and nearly any environment. The V-BAT is a long-endurance aircraft capable of carrying multiple sensors, including land and maritime wide-area surveillance.

The V-Bat VTOL aerial system design features fixed wings and a slender fuselage. It is powered by a 157 cc, two-stroke engine, which generates an output power of 13 hp.

The drone can fly at a maximum speed of 90 knots and offers a range of 300 nautical miles. It can operate at an altitude of 15,000 feet and in wind speeds up to 25 knots. It can perform continuous operations for up to eight hours at a speed of 40 knots.
