EADS Alkyon - military multipurpose unmanned aerial vehicle developed by the Greek company «EADS 3 Sigma».

Despite the fact that the drone models EADS Alkyon positioned developers as target drones, in fact, the drone has a high operational capacity, in particular, we are talking about the possibility of the use of air tools as an observation UAVs and reconnaissance that a relatively low cost device allows drone pretty great promise.

Given the official characteristics of this unmanned aerial vehicle, it should be clarified that this aircraft is used as an air target for practicing air defense, in particular, we are talking about training anti-aircraft artillery operators, although in reality, the device can also be used to test new small arms systems weapons.

Greek drone EADS Alkyon has a fairly compact design and dimensions, in particular, for its entire length of the fuselage in 2 meters 15 centimeters wingspan of air tools is 2 meters 7 centimeters, however, because of the rather large UAV mass component 24 kilos (without additional load), the launch of air tools can be carried out only by using special overclocking settings.

Drone EADS Alkyon equipped with internal combustion piston engine operating on aviation gasoline, in doing so, because the capacity of the power plant of the aircraft is 11 hp, the maximum speed of the UAV flight is 230 km \ h.
