High-speed drone military American Dynamics AD-150, became designed by American experts in the field of aerospace technology more in 2000-ies. The new device should have used to gather reconnaissance data, perform patrol observation fly, of the search operations, military units under control direct contact with the opponent and others.

The first flight of the UAV American Dynamics AD-150 held in 2012 year, however, despite the fact that most of the required tests completed successfully enough, the project was never put into production, which was due primarily to the need to optimize the drone designs for greater reliability in operation. It is assumed that the mass production of drones American Dynamics AD-150 2017 should be developed in the year, however, in the final analysis, the timing will depend on the success of the upcoming tests and trials.

UAV American Dynamics AD-150 formed in a tiltrotor configuration - This design allows not only to carry drone takeoff and landing in a vertical plane, but also makes it possible to reach a maximum airspeed to 520 km \ h that provides high efficiency during use..

The power plant of the American Dynamics AD-150 unmanned aerial vehicle is represented by one Pratt & Whitney Canada PW200 turboprop engine, which has a thrust of 750 hp, which provides ample power for acceleration to high travel speeds. The maximum duration of the autonomous stay of the American Dynamics AD-150 drone in the air is 4 hours, while the effective range of the UAV is 300 kilometers.
