Saqr - military multipurpose unmanned aerial vehicle developed in Saudi Arabia in the year 2012.

The Saudi unmanned aerial vehicle began to be designed by specialists in aerospace engineering and military technology at the beginning of 2010. Engineers and scientists intended to create a high-tech device capable of reconnaissance, conduct surveillance and patrol operations, carry out search operations, track the hidden movement of groups of potential adversaries, and adjust the fire to enemy positions or objects on the ground. Thanks to the qualified approach, the unmanned aerial vehicle Saqr was able to successfully make its first flight already in 2012 year, in view of which the device arrived initially in mass production, and then in the military units of the Armed Forces of Saudi Arabia.

UAV Saqr model has a fairly compact design that provides the device is not only an opportunity to convenient transportation, but also the minimum visibility for radar systems of the enemy that is more effective especially if we take into account the fact that the drone structure is made of light composite materials.

Saqr UAV is equipped with electro-optical and infrared cameras, which allows to use the drone in the daytime and at night, and, in addition to surveillance devices, unmanned aerial vehicle is also equipped with a laser rangefinder and that makes it possible to get more information about the object of research.

Powerplant Saqr drone shows a piston engine, which allows this unit to develop the maximum allowable airspeed in 180 km \ h., While the effective radius of action is limited UAV Saqr 150 kilometers.

According to 2015 years, unmanned aerial vehicle Saqr exist in four basic versions:

  • Saqr 1 - The base version of the UAV;
  • Saqr 2 - A modernized version of the drone, with increased flight performance;
  • Saqr 3 - Modification of the drone having an increased autonomy of the flight;
  • Saqr 4 - Version of the UAV has increased flight range.
