The first flight of an unmanned aerial vehicle models Indra Mantis held in 2012 year, and due to the fact that any deviation from the parameters specified by developers in the course of tests has not been revealed, the project was further developed, in particular, has been put into production.

Spanish multipurpose military drone Indra Mantis has a small size of its fuselage, in particular, when the length of the device in 1,5 meters, its wingspan is 2,1 meters, while maximum takeoff UAV weight is 5,2 kilos, enabling the launch of a drone using muscle power or a small pneumatic catapult.

Powerplant UAV Indra Mantis represented by one electric motor, which is having a sufficiently large capacity, is able to give an unmanned aerial vehicle speed of its movement, in particular, the maximum rate of the value of 200 km \ h., While the effective radius of the UAV action is 30 kilometers.

As a means of surveillance, unmanned vehicle models Indra Mantis used one and one electro-optical infrared camera, which in turn makes it possible to operate the drones at any time.
