New equipment was exhibited during today’s pre-show press tour of the 2015 Taipei Aerospace & Defense Technology Exhibition (TADTE), being held from August 13-16 in Taipei, Taiwan. During the press tour, Taiwan military officials gave detailed presentations of new systems.

Chung-shan Institute of Science and Technology (CSIST) showed off the first prototype of its medium-altitude long-endurance unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV). This is the largest UAV ever produced by CSIST. There were no details regarding performance, but the structure is remarkably similar to the MQ-9 Reaper with the same tail configuration and rear propeller.

CSIST would only state that the UAV was an all-composite construction capable of multi-payloads, including intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance and coastal patrol.
