UAV BSK Defense Phaethon J became designed by the Greek scientists and experts in the field of aerospace engineering and technology at the end of 2000-ies. The new device was developed for use in military applications, in particular, the drone to be used as an intelligence tool that allows to detect covert movement of the enemy, and, both on the ground and in the air.

The relatively simple design of UAV BSK Defense Phaethon J provided a sufficiently low value of this device, which is why his popularity was very high - for now this model drones operated by the armed forces of countries such as Greece, Italy and Spain.

For military applications, unmanned aerial vehicle model BSK Defense Phaethon J has a fairly compact dimensions of its fuselage, in particular, the length of the drone and a wingspan up only 2,2 meters, making it unobtrusive for radar systems.

To keep track of information and to obtain data on the unmanned aircraft model BSK Defense Phaethon J fitted with electro-optical camera 40-fold increases the ability, as well as an infrared camera capable of transmitting images in unfavorable visibility.

Powerplant drone BSK Defense Phaethon J presented turbojet engine capable to develop traction in 8 kN, allowing unmanned aircraft to reach speeds of up to 450 km \ C., while the maximum flight range of the device is 100 kilometers, and the length of time in the air should not be more than 65 minutes.
