Photos of the Day: The small UAV trend
It wouldn’t be an exaggeration to say that unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) have transformed warfare as we know it. One of the biggest trends is the idea of light or small UAVs, including AAI Corporation’s RQ-7 Shadow, as seen above.
The AeroVironment RQ-11 Raven is a hand-launched small hand-launched remote-controlled unmanned aerial vehicle with a flight endurance of 60–90 minutes and operational radius of approximately 10 km (6.2 miles).
Designed by Lockheed Martin, the Desert Hawk small UAV is used mainly by our forces for base perimeter protection.
