Bell Eagle Eye. Specifications. A photo.
Bell Eagle Eye - US military unmanned aerial vehicle developed in 1998, the company «Bell Helicopter».
Draft Bell Eagle Eye UAV began to be developed in 1993 year, at the same time the aircraft has a high prospect of allowing the application of this device for a variety of purposes, including related with carrying out reconnaissance, patrol and observation flights, and so on. Through the use of composite materials, «Bell Helicopter» developers of the American company managed not only to reduce the weight of the drone designs, but also enhance the strength characteristics.
Construction Bell Eagle Eye UAV performed in tiltrotor configuration, which allows not only to carry out drone vertical takeoff and landing, but also increases the maneuverability of the device and gives its special performance features.
The first flight of the UAV Bell Eagle Eye held in 1998 year, however, the project required some improvement, which led to an increase in the cost of the drone, and was not satisfied with the immediate customer, in connection with which, in a short time the project has been canceled.
UAV Bell Eagle Eye has relatively small dimensions, in particular in wingspan 7,37 meter length means unmanned fuselage is only 5, 56 meters, which definitely has a positive trend on the aerodynamics and maneuverability of UAV.
Powerplant drone Bell Eagle Eye is represented by one gas turbine engine of the brand Pratt & Whitney Canada PW207D, which is having a traction capacity of 641 hp, can accelerate the device up to the maximum airspeed in 360 km \ h., While in the process of autonomous flight UAVs can be up to 6 hours.
