ATK MSST - US unmanned aerial vehicle for military use, designed by the corporation «Alliant Techsystems Inc.».

Development and design of unmanned aerial ATK MSST model apparatus was performed by American aircraft designers and specialists in the field of aerospace technology, especially for applications in the military sphere. This high-tech device although it has a rather narrow scope of its application, but it has great prospect, which, however, did not find sufficient support in the US Armed Forces.

Unmanned aerial vehicle of this model is designed for use as aerial targets at the same time, the device can be used equally to test new systems and types of anti-aircraft weapons, and used as a learning tool for future operators of air and missile defense systems, and applied under normal military exercises.

The main feature of the use of UAVs is the presence of a large number of a wide range of electronics, which corrects and stabilizes the device the flight, and, it is important to also take into account the fact that the launch of the drone is performed from a vertical position, and subsequently, the situation varies according to set parameters that are quite It simplifies the operation process.

The power part of the air is represented by means of a turbojet engine, which allows the device to reach a maximum flight speed of up to 1120 km \ h. However, the maximum duration of the flight is limited to devices 20 minutes, which is one of the disadvantages.
