Arcturus T-16XL - military multipurpose unmanned aircraft designed by the American company «Arcturus UAV».

Design and development of unmanned air vehicle model Arcturus T-16XL carried out by American aircraft designers of the company «Arcturus UAV» based on the model of the UAV Arcturus T-15, in this case, if the common features of the drone designs were retained, in terms of flight performance, the drone It proved to be more effective and promising. It is important to clarify that the use of ready-made base, developers were able to reduce the time of the creation of this UAV, which in turn had an impact on the cost of the UAV, which is only slightly higher than the model Arcturus T-15.

American drone Arcturus T-16XL designed for use in military and civil sphere, and, even in the early stages of its creation, the developers have conceived to produce the drone in the military and civilian configurations. UAV Arcturus T-16XL can be used to perform tasks related to the exploration areas, carrying out observation and patrol flights, aerial photography exercise areas, environmental monitoring and fire situation.

Compared with the model Arcturus T-15, the dimensions of the unmanned air vehicle model Arcturus T-16XL to some extent have increased, in particular, the length of this drone is 2 meters 8 centimeters, with a wingspan equal to 3 meters 94 cm, that to some extent complicated the process operation of the aircraft.

The power of the UAV Arcturus T-16XL represented by one piston 4-clock's internal combustion engine, which is able to disperse this air tool to a maximum airspeed in 175 km \ h.
