Multipurpose unmanned aerial vehicle Aeroart Aelius began to be developed by French specialists in the field of aerospace technology in the early 2000-ies, and, as a base, the engineers use a model previously created an unmanned aircraft, but he drone Aeroart Aelius was definitely unique, and as in technical and lёtnom terms, and in terms of its operation.

The main feature of the Aeroart Aelius unmanned aerial vehicle is its ability to take off from the water surface, or even dive to a depth of 300 meters - to date, aircraft with such a capability do not actually exist.

The main purpose of the UAV Aeroart Aelius was a need for such devices in the civil sphere (oceanography) and in the military sphere, where the device is expected to be used to launch from submarines for reconnaissance.

The first tests of drone Aeroart Aelius, or rather it reduced the prototype were carried out in 2005 year, however, despite the fact that they increasingly have been successful, the project was not able to attract investors and buyers, which is why, until now moment, in real production, this model has not arrived.

Drone Aeroart Aelius is equipped with two types of power plants - one of them is used to perform the flight, while the other is designed to move the water, the maximum range of flight of the UAV is 360 kilometers, while the UAV Aeroart Aelius can move and in the water to 40 kilometers
