EADS 3 Sigma Nearchos - Greek multipurpose unmanned aerial vehicle manufactured with 1996, the company «EADS 3 Sigma».

UAV EADS 3 Sigma Nearchos became designed by the Greek scientists and experts in the field of aerospace technology in the first half 90-ies of the last century. The device was of a purely military purpose and was used mainly for the following tasks:

  • Military intelligence area;
  • Aerial reconnaissance to detect aircraft and aircraft of a potential enemy;
  • Adjustment of fire guns;
  • Electronic Warfare;
  • Radio Relay;
  • Perform search operations.


Among other things, during the period of its operation, the unmanned aerial vehicle used also to perform a number of civil tasks, which includes gas and oil pipelines patrolling, monitoring fire conditions in the regions and others.

Drone EADS 3 Sigma Nearchos has a sufficiently large size of its fuselage, however, a good aerodynamic shape. It enables this device is quite acceptable handling and good maneuverability. Taking into account the fact. What UAV EADS 3 Sigma Nearchos can be executed on the fly to an altitude of 7 thousand meters, visually this device from the ground is not found.

UAV EADS 3 Sigma Nearchos equipped with piston power plant, which is able to develop the capacity of 38 hp, which allows drone to accelerate to the maximum exponent of its travel in the air 220 km \ h., While the duration of the flight is a stand-alone device 12 hours .

Greek UAV model EADS 3 Sigma Nearchos equipped with electro-optical and infrared cameras that provides for the collection and processing of information about the study area. To search for and detect air targets, the UAV is equipped with radar means.
