Odysseus - American experimental research unmanned aerial vehicle developed by «Aurora Flight Sciences».

The American Odysseus multipurpose unmanned aerial vehicle is a very unusual research project, which is due to the relatively narrow scope of this aircraft, but at the same time, the large amount of financial resources invested in the creation of an aircraft. As such, this unmanned aerial vehicle does not have, however, according to the aircraft designers and developers from the company Aurora Flight Sciences, the Odysseus drone can be used for remote sensing of the earth's surface, used as a relay, used for monitoring the environment, Etc., which points to the fact that the UAV still has some promise, especially since the device itself was built and tested only recently.

American drone Odysseus has a rather unusual design, but, in fact, the very configuration was created on the basis of the survey, and it is thanks to her drone can be in flight very long time, although the speed of movement of the device in space is relatively small. In addition, it is important to pay attention to the fact that UAV design has a fairly large dimensions, in particular, the length of the drone 24,3 meters, while the scale of the device of the wings is 152,4 meters.

Powerplant UAV Odysseus is represented by nine electric motors, however, the maximum allowable device airspeed is only 70 km \ h.
