The American unmanned aerial vehicle Argus One was designed by American engineers from World Surveillance Group Inc. (WSGI) in the second half of the 2000. In fact, this airplane was intended for military use, and the U.S. Ministry of Defense was the main customer of the UAV, which intended to operate this drone for tasks related to intelligence gathering, patrol and observation flights, and special missions, although the mission itself The device is currently positioned as a scientific research aircraft.

UAV Argus One model is made in the configuration of the airship, and the configuration is very unusual, because in fact, consists of several modules, pressure changes in each of which can be controlled and that the UAV to maneuver. Due to such an unusual approach to the development of the drone, the device is very stable even in windy conditions.

US unmanned aerial vehicle equipped with a set of electro-optical, infrared and multi-spectral camera that allows you to thoroughly study investigated the terrain and objects in it, which, in turn, is the best suited for the direct purpose of the drone.

Powerplant unmanned aerial vehicle Argus One model represented by one electric motor. That actually gives impetus to the movement of the drone, while the device itself is maneuvering due to dynamic pressure changes in each of the models, which is quite effective.
