Unmanned aerial vehicle AeroVironment Global Observer model was developed in the early 2000-ies. Dron had to be purely scientific, exploratory, and was intended for use only in the civilian sector.

The main purpose of UAV models AeroVironment Global Observer is carrying out reconnaissance from high flight altitudes, in particular, the drone can perform flights at an altitude of 17-20 kilometers, which is suitable for the study of land relief, the analysis of geophysical data, observing the polar ice, climate change and others.

The first flight of an unmanned aircraft machine model AeroVironment Global Observer was held in August 2010 years and due to the fact that the drone has successfully passed all the necessary tests and trials, the project continued its development, however, due to the nature of direct application, batch production of UAV AeroVironment Global Observer and it has not been deployed.

Unmanned aerial vehicle AeroVironment Global Observer has huge dimensions - the length of the fuselage at the drone in 21 meter span of the wing device is 53 meters, which creates serious problems with the maneuverability of unmanned. On the other hand, large enough size UAVs provide a device to planning that allows you to maintain an autonomous flight mode before 5-7 days.

Powerplant UAV AeroVironment Global Observer presented hydrogenic engine provides a device very acceptable traction and allows drone to reach a maximum speed of movement in 110 km \ h.
