Design of multi-purpose UAV model Alenia Aermacchi Sky-X has been deployed by the Italian aircraft manufacturers in the field of aerospace technology experts in the early 2000-ies. Initially it was assumed that the drone will receive military applications, where it is supposed to be used as an air tool to collect and process intelligence, as well as an independent fighting unit, however, the project turned out to be uninteresting for the Italian Air Force, which is why, ultimately, the UAV Alenia Aermacchi Sky-X has become positioned as a research project that is used to test the new control system of unmanned aerial vehicles, as well as combat drone used for research purposes.
The first flight of an unmanned aircraft Alenia Aermacchi Sky-X in May 2005 years, thus, the device was able to very successfully complete all the necessary trials and tests, but despite this fact, further development of the project almost did not get.

Unmanned aircraft Alenia Aermacchi Sky-X is equipped with a turbofan engine brand Snecma Microturbo TRI60-268, which is able to develop traction in 4,43 kN, which allows drone mass in 1000 kilos (weight of the empty unit), to develop the flight speed of up to 645 km \ h., while the maximum range of the UAV flight Alenia Aermacchi Sky-X is 350 kilometers off when you are in flight to 6 hours.
Italian drone aircraft Alenia Aermacchi Sky-X is equipped with electro-optical and infrared cameras, which allows data transfer to the control of the operator in the air, while the drone is completely autonomous.
