The program on the development of military UAV model KAI RQ-101 started Korean specialists in the field of aerospace engineering in the early 90-ies of the last century, at the same time, the design was of a very long-lasting nature, as all of the work associated with the creation of the new UAVs were completed only in 2000 year, while commissioning the drone entered only 2001 year.

The unmanned aerial vehicle has a multi-purpose purpose, in particular, this air can be actively used to perform tasks related to the collection of reconnaissance data, the performance of observation and patrol flights, the correction of artillery systems fire, etc. If necessary, the UAV RQ-101 can also be used for Performance of civilian tasks, which includes the provision of security at a given perimeter, aerial photography of the terrain, monitoring the fire situation and assessing the damage that occurred As a result of man-caused and natural disasters, however, the device in this case is still operated exclusively by military units.

South Korean drone KAI RQ-101 has a fairly large size - with a wingspan in meters 6 40 cm, length of the device is 4 70 centimeters meters, and height - six meters. This factor is to some extent reduces the maneuverability of unmanned aerial vehicles, however, on the whole flight performance drone remain very acceptable.

The movement of an unmanned aerial vehicle model KAI RQ-101 is using a two-cylinder piston engine, which is able to disperse the drone up to speed in 185 km \ h. (Maximum value), while the effective radius of action of the UAV is 80 kilometers.

As a means of tracking and surveillance, unmanned aircraft model KAI RQ-101 used electro-optical and infrared cameras, making the UAV applicable at any time.
