Alenia Aermacchi Molynx - Italian UAV, designed in 2006, the company «Alenia Aeronautica».

Design of unmanned aerial vehicle was conducted for civil and military purposes, and, its external view of the device is very similar to the model of an unmanned aerial vehicle Alenia Aermacchi Sky-Y, which appeared somewhat later, but turned out to be less effective in technical and operational terms. This drone is designed to perform a wide range of tasks, including terrain reconnaissance, aerial photography and aerial photography, performing tasks related to geological reconnaissance and environmental reconnaissance of the terrain, etc. In the military sphere, this drone was supposed to be operated mainly as a tactical tool, however, rather large dimensions This device did not attract the attention of representatives of the Italian Armed Forces, which is why the project received an exclusively civilian purpose, however, due to the lack of orders, at the moment it is known only about the existence of only two copies of this device.

The form of its fuselage UAV Alenia Aermacchi Molynx very similar to the model of Alenia Aermacchi Sky-Y, the only exception is the tail of the drone and the use of a twin-engine powerplant that provides drone and a higher travel speed and greater lifting force, which does important for large dimensions device (drone length of 12 meters in span in 25 meters).

Depending on their destination, an unmanned aerial vehicle model Alenia Aermacchi Molynx can be equipped with a variety of cameras and devices to extract information from the object of study, in particular, on the drone can be installed humidity sensors, level of radiation measurement devices and air pollution, electro-optical, infrared, thermal and multispectral cameras, and others.
