JAXA S3TD is a Japanese military unmanned aerial vehicle designed by JAXA.

The design of an unmanned aerial vehicle of the JAXA S3TD model was deployed by Japanese specialists in the field of aerospace technology specifically for military purposes, in particular, the new drone had the highest flight technical characteristics in its class, and could be used for tasks related to terrain reconnaissance, patrol and observation work ... In fact, the scope of operation of the JAXA S3TD unmanned aerial vehicle was very limited, however, this factor was perfectly compensated by the fact that the device could move at supersonic speeds with almost no sonic boom, which provided the drone with both stealth from detection and the ability to quickly relocate. In addition, due to the high speed of its flight, the JAXA S3TD unmanned aerial vehicle could carry out high-speed reconnaissance of the terrain.




Japanese drone JAXA S3TD has a sufficiently small size - it is this factor to minimize the spread of impact in overcoming the sound barrier, in addition, the small size of the drone allow the device to remain unobtrusive and by visual inspection, and when trying to establish the purpose of radar means.

UAV JAXA S3TD has excellent aerodynamic properties, which ensures a high flight speed and at the same time allows you to be quite agile, and, drone is controlled exclusively offline, due mainly to the high speed movement of the device in space.

Unmanned aerial vehicle JAXA S3TD equipped with turbojet engine, which allows to develop the drone flight speed in 2000 km \ h., While the maximum range of the UAV following is one thousand kilometers.

Today UAVs JAXA S3TD is purely experimental nature of its use, however, in the near future, this model can go into series production.
