Argus XL - multi-purpose unmanned aerial vehicle dual-use, developed in 2007, the Romanian aircraft manufacturers.

In the design of an unmanned air vehicle model Argus XL, Romanian and aircraft manufacturers in the field of aerospace technology and aerospace experts guided by the experience of designing unmanned aircraft model Argus SWhich turned out to be quite popular in the country, however, due to a number of operational constraints, the potential of the device did not find broad support.

As well as the unmanned aerial vehicle of the Argus S model, the Argus XL drone can be used in both civil and military spheres, in particular, after optimization of the design and technical part of the unmanned device, it was able not only to move at higher speeds, but also to perform flights over long distances, which has become much more efficient.

Dimensions design UAV Argus XL model greatly increased, in particular in the length of the device in 4,1 meters and wingspan in 5 meters altitude drone began to make 1,72 meters, however, the UAV weight remains fairly relatively easy, particularly maximum take-off weight of the device is 140 kg.

Unmanned aerial vehicle is equipped with one rotary engine, which having a capacity of hp 20 allows drone accelerate to maximum flight speed in km 230 \ hr., While the effective range of the apparatus is unmanned 300 kilometers.

As a means of tracking on unmanned aerial Argus XL device uses one electro-optical camera is equipped with infrared sensor, it can be used as a drone in the daytime and at night.
