Locats - South African military unmanned aerial vehicle developed by «BAE Systems Land Systems».
The unmanned aerial vehicle was designed by aircraft manufacturers of the company «BAE Systems Land Systems» for use only in the military sphere, where the drone everything else, has a rather narrow specificity of its application, subjected to exploitation as an air target (during exercise, for the training of air systems and missile defense to test new weapons systems, etc.). Due to the rather narrow specificity of its use, it means the air does not find much popularity, and production of drones has been rather limited, although according to mid-year 2016, production is an air vehicle was not removed.
Unmanned aerial vehicle has dimensions comparable with most types of drones, particularly when the device is in 3,5 meter length, the magnitude of its wings 3,2 meter, thus, the mass is different aircraft higher value is about 52 kilogram.
Launching UAV made by means of a special pneumatic catapult, which is able to give the initial impulse device, providing a nominal speed to perform the flight, while the planting is done by parachute system.
The power unit of the aircraft presented a piston engine with a capacity of 38 kw., Which allows the device to reach a maximum speed of movement to 300 km \ h., At the maximum flight duration 1 hour and the effective range of repetition in 80 kilometers.
