According to the presentation, the SER (or SCR) of CH-805 is 0,01m², or -20 dB, the equivalent of a bird. The UAV is 4 meters wide and weighs 190 kg maximum take-off. It is capable of flying at speeds up to 730 km / h for 40 minutes.

The CH-805 is launched using rocket assist by two solid-propellant booster rocket engines, and it is recovered via parachute.

CAAA studies show that the SER drone is lower than that of US F-22 and will serve both as target practice for radar operators and shooters on the ground, and as target shooting tests for the validation of new anti-aircraft missiles in development.
