The work related to the development of the unmanned aerial vehicle Skyshark began with Australian experts in the field of aircraft engineering and aerospace technologies in 2000-th year. This device was supposed to be used in the civil sphere, and due to the rather wide functionality, the sphere of operation of the drone is very wide, in particular, the Skyshark UAV is used for aerial photography and aerial surveying operations, for reconnaissance, patrol and observation flights, Monitoring of the environment, control over traffic, etc. Due to the very high potential, the Skyshark drone is very popular today.

Australian UAV Skyshark has a fairly compact dimensions, in particular, this device has a length of 2,4 meters, while the scope of the drone the wings of 2,8 meters.

Powerplant UAV Skyshark represented by one jet, which, depending on the version and device version, can develop draft from the 0,1 0,2 kN to kN, which allows drone to accelerate to the maximum speed of its movement in 400 km \ h.

According to 2016 years, unmanned aerial vehicle Skyshark model is available in three basic versions:

  • Skyshark 1A - Basic version of the UAV;
  • Skyshark 1B - A modernized version of the drone with a flight range increased;
  • Skyshark 2B - A modernized version of the UAV, equipped with a more powerful power plant.
