Processing multipurpose unmanned aircraft has become a means conducted by experts in the field of aviation and aerospace technology in the middle of 2000-ies, in particular, the first plans to start development of the UAV were announced in 2006 year. Himself an unmanned aerial vehicle to be used exclusively for military purposes, however, thanks to the vast possibilities, the drone appeared multipurpose and can be used to perform tasks related to the collection and processing of intelligence data, perform patrol and surveillance flights, and others.
