The design of the multipurpose unmanned aerial vehicle of the SAGEM Patroller model began in 2008. The new drone was intended exclusively for military use, in particular, the device was intended to be used for reconnaissance of the terrain, correcting artillery strikes, for detecting the hidden movement of the enemy and air targets within a radius of 250 kilometers. In 2009, the prototype device was presented at the aerospace show in Paris, however, this device continued to be developed and only in the 2012 year it underwent its first flight tests, which were completed very successfully, which allowed the serial production of unmanned aerial vehicles.

Design UAV SAGEM Patroller is based on civil glider Stemme ASP S-15, but is more compact, providing increased maneuverability drone. Sufficiently large wingspan allows the drone to be in the air for quite a long period, in particular, according to official figures, the drone can patrol territory until 20 hours, but, for the same reason, SAGEM Patroller UAV is vulnerable to anti-aircraft systems.
