The purpose of Kestrel is to use it as targets for anti-aircraft missile systems and anti-aircraft artillery. Especially for these tasks, the UAV was equipped with IR traps and a smoke device. Management of the target is carried out from the ground by radio. The launcher includes a container with 5 targets, a fuel tank and a catapult mounted on top of the container. The power plant is a two-stroke piston engine with an 4,4 horsepower. In 1995, Kestrel Mk.II completed the testing program in the Gulf countries. At its base, larger-sized UAVs are being built to carry out reconnaissance missions.
