Manual Launching of UAV

PRISTINA - Regional Command West elements conducted a training exercise in Camp "Villaggio Italia" (Peja/Peć) on 27th of May. The drill had the aim to increase the interoperability between several assets composing the multinational unit.

An infantry Company compiled by soldiers from Italy, Moldova and North Macedonia, replicated an intervention to quell a civilian riot, in close coordination with a specialist units operating an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle(UAV), namely the drones "RAVEN B/DDL". This tactical manual-launched UAV represent a very flexible and effective intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance tool, which allows the acquisition of images and videos in real time in a range of several kilometres from the spot.
