The first development of the unmanned aerial vehicle of the Aereon WASP model began with the American specialists in the field of aerospace engineering at the beginning of the 2000-ies, while the aircraft designers intended to create a multifunctional device capable of not only collecting reconnaissance data, but also being an independent combat unit. Initially, the project definitely attracted military representatives from the US, however, due to the fact that its implementation was very long and long, the US military command came to the conclusion that it was necessary to refuse further support for developments.

According to 2016 years, the development of unmanned aircraft continues, however, we are talking about the most fundamental developments in connection with what experts are inclined to believe that the prospect of the emergence of this drone is extremely low.

The main features of the Aereon WASP unmanned aerial vehicle include the ability to track targets and information in 360-degree space, and, if necessary, the drone can be equipped with special weapons systems that ensure the ability to engage not only ground, but also air targets.

Powerful enough propulsion drone Aereon WASP, allows the device to move in space at a speed of up to 250 km \ h., At the time, as the duration of the autonomous flight is 12 hours, which is very effective.

As a visual tracking and search tools on the UAV Aereon WASP applied electro, multispectral and infrared cameras.
