The design of the Dassault AVE-D Petit Duc multipurpose unmanned aerial vehicle was organized by French aircraft manufacturers and specialists in the field of aerospace technology in the mid-90s of the last century. The unmanned aerial vehicle was of an exclusively experimental nature, however, its promise was clearly felt, since in fact, the Dassault AVE-D Petit Duc UAV was developed in accordance with stealth technology, which provided it with the ability to move at high altitudes, and despite the rather large dimensions, made it possible to remain completely invisible for a number of radar equipment.

The Dassault AVE-D Petit Duc unmanned aerial vehicle was supposed to be used not only for reconnaissance and correction of fire on the enemy, but also as an independent combat unit, in particular, it was supposed that the drone would be equipped with two high-precision missiles that would allow the destruction of objects on the ground . Nevertheless, despite the fact that in 2000 year the unmanned aerial vehicle successfully passed all the necessary tests, the operation of the drone was still very expensive, due to which the project was temporarily frozen, however, it is not closed.

French multipurpose drone Dassault AVE-D Petit Duc is equipped with highly sensitive electro-optical camera having 40-fold increase, which in turn is equipped with an infrared sensor that allows you to track and receive the necessary information about the area and even under poor or poor visibility.

The device is equipped with a jet engine operating in a pulsed mode, which allows drone to not only develop a very high speed of its movement in space, but also to remain in flight for a very long time. The maximum flight range drone Dassault AVE-D Petit Duc in the mode of continuous operation of the engine is 153 kilometers.
