Staff doing maintenance on a PD-1 VTOL  fixed-wing drone (C) and Leleka-100 fixed-wing electric UAV (R bottom). Both drones are made in custom gold finishing and both of them are integrated with the same mission control software, which allows to plan, execute and analyze aerial surveillance mission. PD-1 Pro VTOL (vertical take-off and landing) fixed-wing UAV can stay in the air for 7 hours, while carrying 6.5 kg of payload and maximum data link range of 100 km. Leleka-100 is capable of flying for 2.5 hours with EO and IR payload and has maximum range of 50 km. Both drones has been operated by multiple government and private users since 2015. The black (Top) RAM UAV is built by Defense & Electronics Technology Company (CDET) LLC, Kyiv (Ukraine) is its latest RAM UAV/loitering munition. The RAM UAV kamikaze drone is built with extensive use of composite materials, which its designer claims makes it very low-observable to enemy air defenses. Propelled by a low acoustic signature electric motor, the RAM UAV can covertly attack by surprise, even from a short distance from the target. An electric motor enables it to fly to 30 km at 70 km/h cruising speed. Launch is catapult assisted. The drone takes only 10 minutes to go from unpack to launch. It can stay aloft for up to 40 minutes, which is quite enough to get a target detected and destroyed by lethality. UAVs are a component of an unmanned aircraft system (UAS); which include a UAV, a ground-based controller, and a system of communications between the two. An unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) (or uncrewed aerial vehicle, commonly known as a drone) is an aircraft without a human pilot on board and a type of unmanned vehicle. The flight of UAVs may operate with various degrees of autonomy: either under remote control by a human operator or autonomously by onboard computers. The Unit
