UAV has two surveillance cameras - high-resolution electro-optical camera and an infrared camera, which makes the unit applicable in almost any daily conditions.
As the power plant, on the unmanned air vehicle EADS Atlante model used a piston engine, which allows the drone to accelerate to speed in 180 km \ h., While the operating range of the UAV action is 220 kilometers, and the maximum length of time the device in the air is equal to 20 hours.
