“Elbit covers the tactical side of the spectrum, from the diminutive Skylark to the Hermes series,” claimed Eli Yitzhaki, the company’s vice president, business development and marketing. But while the Hermes 450 provides the backbone of Israel defense force UAV operations, the Skylark mini-UAV is showing great promise during development trials undertaken by the Israeli Army.

Launched from a 14,000-foot mountain top, Elbit’s Skylark mini UAV recently climbed to an altitude exceeding 15,000 feet before landing at a designated point of recovery. Since that day in May, the Skylark has demonstrated a record-breaking performance in extreme temperatures ranging from minus 17 to plus 50 degrees Celsius in harsh weather conditions.
