The UAV is powered by an internal combustion engine. Takeoff is performed via pneumatic catapult and the plane lands by deploying its parachute together with inflating the airbag for additional impact dampening. The parachute is automatically released after the plane has landed. The UAV can be operated in various environmental conditions in a wide temperature range (-20°...+50°C). The system is using latest technology to provide high functionality with low pricing.

The main features of the system are:
• Real time video from a gyro-stabilized gimbal (various options are available)
• On-board video recorder
• Roll-compensated digital photo camera
• Fully autonomous flight control including takeoff and landing
• Autonomous mission execution with the option to change all parameters during flight
• In-flight changeable waypoint coordinates, and redirection to any of the waypoints
• Different pre-programmable flight patterns
• Definable actions in case of malfunctions and loss of data link (Return Home, Proceed with Mission, Emergency Landing After Critical Error, etc.)
• Multi-sensor usage
• Fast and easy takeoff by catapult
• Low noise and weak radar visibility

• Controllable navigation lights
• Record geo-referenced video and stills in the Ground Control Station
• Emergency dead reckoning navigation using a compass and estimated wind speed as a backup when GPS fix is lost
• Object tracking and software image stabilization
• Video and imagery analysis
• Geo-referenced view of video and photos
• Image data export to 3rd party tools such as Mosaic and GIS software
• High-efficiency internal combustion engines
