Design of UAV models Denel Dynamics Seeker started by South African experts in the field of aviation and aerospace technology in the first half 80-ies of the last century. In spite of the virtual lack of experience in the construction of such devices, new unmanned aerial vehicle has been very promising and high-tech, so that its operation continues to be carried out to this day.

Despite the fact that initially the unmanned aircraft was positioned by South African experts as a military aircraft, the project soon became interested and the civil service and the organization of the country, in particular, a few drones have been used for the protection of national wildlife parks, some of them began to be used as patrol means for monitoring the highways, and others. however, the main operator of the UAV remain the air force of South Africa.

UAV Denel Dynamics Seeker is equipped with a high-resolution electro-optical camera and an infrared camera that allows you to use the device at any time. Depending on the modification of the drone, an unmanned aerial vehicle can also be fitted and other additional means, such as laser pointers and rangefinders.
