Design of unmanned air vehicle model began at the beginning of the first decade of 21-century. The new device is intended for use in military and civil sphere, however, the functionality of the unmanned seriously limited, since the drone could be used solely as a means of intelligence.

The American multi-purpose unmanned aerial vehicle Sky Sentinel is made in the configuration of the airship, which has a length of 30 meters and has an air volume of 740 cubic meters. This configuration has been selected by US specialists specifically to enable vertical and vertical takeoff and landing, and the airship configuration allows the Sky Sentinel model to be in flight for a very long period of time, which is best suited for long reconnaissance missions, And the performance of patrol-observation flights.

The first flight model of an unmanned aerial vehicle Sky Sentinel held in 2013 year, and due to the fact that the device has successfully coped with the test trials, the project was approved and put into production, which continues to be to this day. Despite the possibility of exploitation of the drone in the military and in the civilian sphere, the project found the greatest application in the commercial sector, where it is used as a means of aerial photography and aerial photography, as well as a means to prevent a fire hazard situations.

Powerplant drone represented by four electric motors, allowing drone to reach a maximum speed of flight in 120 km \ h., At the maximum flight duration 26 hours.
