The DRS Sentry HP unmanned aerial vehicle began to be designed in the 80-ies of the last century, with the main purpose of this device being reconnaissance, detecting the enemy's covert movement, performing tasks related to patrol and observation flights, adjusting artillery systems and Etc. For its era, an unmanned air vehicle has a sufficiently high manufacturability, in particular, with relatively compact dimensions, this drone has the means of bodies meters, which allows visual observation.

With its length in meters 2 57 centimeters wingspan model DRS Sentry HP drone air means is 3 90 meters centimeters, with, drone weight is relatively small, making it easy to operate with the UAV. Due to its small size, the device is very difficult to detect by conventional means of radar, which is one of the reasons for the great popularization of the military apparatus.

Power plant UAV DRS Sentry HP piston engine provided with one mark Herbrandson Dyad 290, which having a capacity of traction 28 hp able to attach the device to the maximum displacement rate of air to 185 km \ h., While the length of the auxiliary filter unit It is about 8 hours, which is quite attractive even by modern standards.

Due to its high efficiency, the UAV DRS Sentry HP continues to operate to this day.
