Multipurpose unmanned aerial vehicle Apex model is designed for reconnaissance, patrol and observation flight, control fire artillery systems, targeting systems, border security and a certain perimeter, etc. With such a broad scope of its operation, the unmanned aerial vehicle has been very popular and today is widely used by US forces.

Due to the unique tactical possibilities of this drone is the best suited for special operations, and while the effective radius of action and the drone is very limited, this factor has virtually no effect on the popularity of the UAV.

Unmanned aerial vehicle has a sufficiently large wingspan, constituting 4 30 meters centimeters, thus, of the length of the device is only a meter 1 85 centimeters. This factor does not affect the aerodynamic properties of the UAV, however, creates problems when transporting the device to the place of direct operation and requires special pneumatic catapult launcher.

As a means of surveillance drones to the Apex uses electro-optical, infrared and multi-spectral camera.

Powerplant unmanned aerial Apex unit represented by one electric motor, which allows the device to accelerate to the maximum speed of its movement in 100 km \ h., At the same time, the maximum duration of the flight is limited to drone 6 hours.
