Alenia Aermacchi Molynx - Italian UAV, designed in 2006, the company «Alenia Aeronautica».
Design of unmanned aerial vehicle was conducted for civil and military purposes, and, its external view of the device is very similar to the model of an unmanned aerial vehicle Alenia Aermacchi Sky-YWho appeared somewhat later, but was less effective in technical and operational terms. This drone is designed for a wide range of tasks, among which exploration area, aerial photography and aerial photography, performance of tasks related to geological exploration and environmental exploration areas and others. In the military sphere, the drone was supposed to operate mainly as a tactic, however, quite large dimensions of the device have not attracted the attention of representatives of the armed forces of Italy, which is why the project was exclusively civilian use, however, due to lack of orders, at the moment we only know the existence of only two copies of this unit.
The form of its fuselage UAV Alenia Aermacchi Molynx very similar to the model of Alenia Aermacchi Sky-Y, the only exception is the tail of the drone and the use of a twin-engine powerplant that provides drone and a higher travel speed and greater lifting force, which does important for large dimensions device (drone length of 12 meters in span in 25 meters).
Depending on their destination, an unmanned aerial vehicle model Alenia Aermacchi Molynx can be equipped with a variety of cameras and devices to extract information from the object of study, in particular, on the drone can be installed humidity sensors, level of radiation measurement devices and air pollution, electro-optical, infrared, thermal and multispectral cameras, and others.
