NASA Prandtl-M is an American multifunctional unmanned aerial vehicle developed by the US National Aerospace Agency.

To date, there is not much known about the unmanned aerial vehicle of the NASA Prandtl-M model, however, the main reason why American aircraft designers from the US national aerospace agency began to develop this UAV is the need to send this drone to Mars. Among other things, NASA Prandtl-M drones are also expected to be operated on Earth, where the device can be used to perform a wide variety of tasks, including aerial photography and aerial photography, atmosphere analysis, monitoring and patrol missions, and the like.

The US NASA Prandtl-M unmanned aerial vehicle is designed in an airplane-type configuration, while the airframe has fairly compact overall dimensions, while the operation of this device involves flights at an altitude of about 30 kilometers, which is suitable for a depleted Martian atmosphere, when used on Earth, this device is likely to undergo a number of changes. The own chassis system of the NASA Prandtl-M is absent, which means that the launch requires a special accelerating catapult.

The power part of the multi-functional unmanned aerial vehicle NASA Prandtl-M is represented by one electric engine, which allows the aircraft to develop a maximum speed of flight in 120 km / h, with autonomy of being in the air up to 24-h.
