Valkyrie - New Zealand military unmanned aerial vehicle developed by «X-Craft».
The high-tech device developed by New Zealand aircraft manufacturers and experts in the field of aerospace technology specifically for military use. In fact, an unmanned aerial vehicle is a tactical reconnaissance drone, which has a high rate of displacement in space and able to perform tasks in all weather conditions, including extreme enough. In addition to gathering intelligence, unmanned aerial vehicle Valkyrie also found extensive use in the performance of tasks related to patrolling a certain area, observation of military objectives, the implementation of search operations, adjusted firing at enemy positions, and others.
Suffice unusual shape of the UAV is the need for a device of high aerodynamic performance, in particular, the drone is a highly maneuverable and well managed, moreover, the device itself can be controlled both from the hand transmitter in the presence of the operator and in a fully autonomous mode.
Valkyrie drones equipped with electro-optical camera for filming the area in daylight conditions, as well as an infrared camera, which provides an opportunity to observe and shoot in low areas, or the unfavorable visibility.
Starting UAV made using special catapult installed in the vehicle, while the planting is carried out directly on the ground surface or the water surface - UAV design is made so that the probability of injury is minimal in this case.
New Zealand unmanned aerial vehicle equipped with a piston engine, which allows the device to develop the airspeed to 150 km \ h., While the maximum range of this device is limited following 100 kilometers.
