AeroVironment Wasp III - US military multipurpose unmanned aerial vehicle developed in 2007, the company «AeroVironment».

Work on designing a miniature UAV AeroVironment Wasp III models were deployed by specialists from the company «AeroVironment» in the middle of 2000-ies. New unmanned vehicle has broad capabilities, and should have been used to perform a variety of tasks, which should include reconnaissance, search and rescue operations and special missions, the implementation of patrol and surveillance flights, and others.

The first flight of the military drone AeroVironment Wasp III took place in 2007 year, and because the device successfully coped with the performance of all necessary tests, this unmanned aerial vehicle was sent to mass production. It should be clarified that at the moment the drone of AeroVironment Wasp III is actively used not only by the US Armed Forces, but also by the military departments of such countries as Australia, Spain, France and Sweden, which clearly emphasizes the prospects of this project, which, among other things, Budgetary - the cost of one aircraft, according to the data for 2015 year, is about 49 thousand dollars.

The compact dimensions of the drone, while its length in centimeters 38, the scope of the drone the wings is only 72 cm, the device has a high maneuverability and low weight, allowing it to remain in flight for quite a long time in spite of the limited charge of the batteries.

As the monitoring and tracking of funds for UAVs model AeroVironment Wasp III are two types of cameras are used - electro, providing the transmission of high quality video and infrared, which allows for shooting in unfavorable, or the lack of visibility that makes the drone effective for use in any Times of Day.

Powerplant UAV AeroVironment Wasp III is represented by a single electric motor, able to disperse the aircraft to a maximum airspeed in 65 km \ h. However, the effective radius of action of the UAV is only 5 kilometers.

According to 2015 years, the production of unmanned aerial vehicles continues.
