Design of multi-purpose military UAV was deployed by Colombian experts in the field of aerospace technology in 2010 year. Since. As previously in this country design of unmanned systems is not carried out, the development of tactical drone took a very long period of time, however, this year 2014 air vehicle could very well make its first flight.

The Iris unmanned aerial vehicle is used for reconnaissance of the terrain, detection of the hidden movement of a possible enemy, performing tasks related to search operations, for patrolling the terrain or for conducting observations on a particular object, etc. Despite the relatively short range of this unmanned aerial vehicle, which is limited Effective radius of 100 kilometers, the drone of the Iris was able to perfectly prove itself, since the device can be in the air E for a sufficiently long period.

Columbia drone equipped with a Rotary piston engine was placed in the back of the UAV, which is able to disperse the aircraft to maximum speed in 100 km \ h. However, the maximum height of the drone's flight is limited 3100 meters, which is not always effective, especially considering the fact UAV that is used exclusively for military purposes and objectives.
