HALE-D - the US military unmanned aerial vehicle developed in 2011, the company «Lockheed Martin».



UAV HALE-D model was designed specifically for use in the armed forces of the United States, and, despite the fact that the drone has a rather narrow specificity of its application, the device has a very wide possibilities, in particular, the unmanned aerial vehicle may be used to gather intelligence data, operated as a communication tool, used to control the military units located on the ground.

Design of UAV models HALE-D was deployed in 2007 year, and despite the fact that the device has a relatively simple design and configuration, the project cost was quite high, so that the UAV production was very limited - according to some reports, for only three were built aircraft means the entire period.

His first flight tests of drone HALE-D spent in 2011 year, and due to the fact that any problems during testing have been identified, the project has received approval from the US military command.

Drone HALE-D has a rather impressive dimensions, in particular, for its entire length in 52 meters altitude unmanned air tool is 18 meters, which causes serious difficulties in transporting drone.

As the power plant on the HALE-D unmanned aircraft used electric motors, which give the device and the speed and allow for maneuvering. Maximum HALE-D UAV flight speed is 200 km \ h., At the same time, the effective radius of action equal to 5000 kilometers, which is very impressive.
