The work related to the design of the Temco XKDT Teal unmanned aerial vehicle was deployed by US aerospace experts in the first half of the 50-ies of the last century. This aircraft was intended for military operation, however, for a number of reasons, the operational capabilities of the drone were seriously limited, in particular, the UAV Temco XKDT Teal is positioned as an air target, which allows testing new anti-aircraft and anti-ballistic missile systems, however, despite this fact , The project proved to be quite promising, and although the production of the drone was short, later, a number of unmanned aerial vehicles were created on its basis.

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.
