Works related to the design of UAV models Teledyne Ryan Scarab, were deployed by US experts in the field of space technologies and systems in the mid-80-ies of the last century. This device is intended solely for military use, and had to perform tasks related to the exploration area, and, the project was not developed itself for use in the US Air Force and for export to the armed forces of Egypt.

Unmanned aerial vehicle models Teledyne Ryan Scarab has a sufficiently compact size - with its length fuselage 6 meters 12 centimeters drone has a wingspan equal 3 meters 35 centimeters that for good aerodynamic shape provides apparatus high maneuverability and also allows to accelerate to a high speed flight.

The first test trials with the rise in the air, in relation to unmanned aircraft models Teledyne Ryan Scarab were held in 1988 year, and due to the fact that any deviation from the rules established by the developers, account had not been, the project was put into production. Most drones issued this model have been put into service of the Egyptian army, however, a few copies were also left as a demonstration for the purpose of possible interest of potential customers.

Powerplant UAV models Teledyne Ryan Scarab represented jet brand Teledyne CAE 373, which in its tractive power in 4,3 kN., Is able to disperse the drone to a maximum airspeed in 970 km \ h., While the maximum range of repetition of this device It is about 2250 km, which is quite effective.
