The first development of unmanned aerial Aereon WASP model unit started by US experts in the field of aerospace engineering in the early 2000-ies, when this aircraft designers set out to create a multifunctional device capable of not only gathering intelligence, but also to be an independent combat unit. Initially, the project definitely attracted military representatives from the United States, however, due to the fact that its implementation has been very long and continuous, the US military command has come to the conclusion that refusal of further support development.
According to 2016 years, the development of unmanned aircraft continues, however, we are talking about the most fundamental developments in connection with what experts are inclined to believe that the prospect of the emergence of this drone is extremely low.
The main features of the unmanned aerial vehicle Aereon WASP model should include the ability to track targets and information in 360-gradunom space, and, if necessary, the drone can be equipped with special weapons systems, providing the ability to defeat not only the land but also air targets.
Powerful enough propulsion drone Aereon WASP, allows the device to move in space at a speed of up to 250 km \ h., At the time, as the duration of the autonomous flight is 12 hours, which is very effective.
As a visual tracking and search tools on the UAV Aereon WASP applied electro, multispectral and infrared cameras.
