Elbit CU-168 Skylark


Starting in 2006, the Canadian Forces also acquired up to 10 Skylark II hand-held micro-UAVs (MUAV) in support of operations in Afghanistan. The Israeli-made MUAV is capable of autonomous operations but is normally flown by an operator. Electrically powered, this MUAV is extremely quiet. The airframe design is minimalist in concept with a sensor package slung below a tubular fuselage. The composite wings and tail section are detachable for storage and transport. Assembly is rapid and the MUAV is hand-launched into action. Canada Systems now retired and replaced by AeroVironment RQ-11 Raven
