Lockheed Martin Polecat - US military multipurpose unmanned aerial vehicle developed in 2005, the company «Lockheed Martin».

The design of the Lockheed Martin Polecat unmanned aerial vehicle was deployed by American aircraft manufacturers and specialists in the field of aerospace systems and technology in the early 2000s. The new device was supposed to be used as an air reconnaissance device, however, due to its wide capabilities, the drone could also be used to perform patrol and observation flights, carry out search and special missions, and even as an independent combat unit, which provided the device with a very wide scope of application.

Unmanned aerial vehicle Lockheed Martin Polecat model made its first test flight in 2005 year, and due to the fact that the project could prove to be highly effective and promising, the device has been improved by the implementation of specific tasks. Nevertheless, in December 2006 years, unmanned aerial vehicle crashed, and therefore on its creation program was temporarily minimized, however, has not been abolished, it points to the fact that work on the project can be continued in the near future.

The American military drone Lockheed Martin Polecat has a fairly large dimensions of its fuselage, in particular, with a length of 8 meters 30 centimeters, the wingspan of the UAV is 27 meters 44 centimeters, which to some extent limits its maneuverability, however, to minimize this negative factor, the unmanned aerial vehicle the device is equipped with two powerful jet engines, each of which has a thrust power of 13,38 kN, the total work of which allows the drone to develop a maximum speed of its movement of 750 km / h, while the autonomous flight mode is limited to 4 hours.
