    This system allows special forces and kommando units to operate longer in dangerous environments. Commanders don't have to risk sacrificing an expensive helicopter and its crew to resupply forces or even sacrifice large transport aircraft. At the top picture we can also see that this system can carry what looks to be 8 anti tank missiles. This piece of machinery here is really the face of future warfare.

    Would have been designated MQ-18, but the program was cancelled in 2012 just months before its proposed deployment to Afghanistan with ARGUS-IS.



    1.8 Gigapixel resolution for the ARGUS-IS cameras.

    ARGUS-IS achieved IOC with the US Army as part of the Gorgon Stare Increment 2 package in 2014:
