Design UAV Swift Engineering Bat pattern has been deployed by US aircraft manufacturers and experts in the field of aerospace systems, specifically for use in war. This unmanned aerial vehicle was used to carry out reconnaissance, patrol and surveillance of the flight, perform special missions, rescue operations, etc.

The first work on the creation of an unmanned air means Swift Engineering Bat models have been deployed by the American company «Swift Engineering» in the early 2000-ies, thus, professionals took a lot of time on this project, in particular, its first flight the UAV has made only 2006 year, however, due to the fact that the device has been very promising, it was decided to adopt the US army.

American drone Swift Engineering Bat has a fairly compact design, developed with the use of composite materials, which ensures a good maneuverability and high efficiency applications. In particular, the scope of the drone's wings in 3 4 meter centimeter, length of the device is only meters 2 28 centimeters. Owing to a rather large weight UAV launch Swift Engineering Bat is made from a special ramp, which to some extent makes it difficult to operate the process of the drone.

Powerplant UAV Swift Engineering Bat represented by a single piston engine, which allows the device to reach a maximum speed of movement in 150 km \ h., While the maximum length of the device is in the air is 25 hours (when the observation and patrol flights).
