An improved version of the Lockheed Martin Desert Hawk mini-UAV is now operating with the British Army in Afghanistan. The hand-launched system has an improved video sensor and a larger wing. The UK is the only announced customer for the Desert Hawk. Another mini-UAV, the Honeywell T-Hawk VTOL system, is also operating with British forces, probably on inspection tasks connected with the counter-improvised-explosive-devices effort in Afghanistan.
