The design of the Alenia Aermacchi Sky-X multi-purpose unmanned aerial vehicle was deployed by Italian aircraft manufacturers and aerospace technology experts at the beginning of the 2000. Initially, it was assumed that the drone would receive military assignment, where it was intended to be used as an aerial for the collection and processing of reconnaissance data, as well as as an independent combat unit, however, the project was of no interest to the Italian Air Force, so, ultimately, the Alenia UAV Aermacchi Sky-X began to be positioned as a research project used to test new control systems for unmanned aerial vehicles, as well as as a military drone used for research ovatelskih purposes.

The first flight of an unmanned aircraft Alenia Aermacchi Sky-X in May 2005 years, thus, the device was able to very successfully complete all the necessary trials and tests, but despite this fact, further development of the project almost did not get.

Unmanned aircraft Alenia Aermacchi Sky-X is equipped with a turbofan engine brand Snecma Microturbo TRI60-268, which is able to develop traction in 4,43 kN, which allows drone mass in 1000 kilos (weight of the empty unit), to develop the flight speed of up to 645 km \ h., while the maximum range of the UAV flight Alenia Aermacchi Sky-X is 350 kilometers off when you are in flight to 6 hours.

Italian drone aircraft Alenia Aermacchi Sky-X is equipped with electro-optical and infrared cameras, which allows data transfer to the control of the operator in the air, while the drone is completely autonomous.
