The works related to the design of unmanned aircraft model Temco XKDT Teal been deployed by US experts in the field of aerospace technology in the first half 50-ies of the last century. This aerial vehicle was designed for operation in the military field, however, for several reasons, operating drone capabilities were severely limited, in particular, the UAV Temco XKDT Teal positioned as aerial target, which allows to test new systems and missile weapons, but despite this fact The project turned out to be quite promising, and although the issue of drone was brief, then, at its base was set up more number of unmanned aerial vehicles.
His first flight of an unmanned aerial vehicle model Temco XKDT Teal made in September 1957 years and due to the fact that all tests have been successfully completed, the project was sent to the technical revision, and later was also launched in production.
Unmanned aerial means Temco XKDT Teal has a sufficiently compact size - with its length in 3 meter 61 centimeter, the device has a wing span in 1 meter 50 centimeters, however, despite the fairly compact size, drone has a relatively large mass, given that the launch device carries directly with the aircraft, which, however, does not reduce the effectiveness of the use of drones.
Powerplant UAV Temco XKDT Teal represented by two solid rocket motors, one of which acts as a booster, acting at the same time only about 3,8 seconds, while the other works during 480 seconds and allows you to control the UAV flight path.
