Ukrspecsystems develops Shark reconnaissance drone

Ukraine-based company Ukrspecsystems has officially unveiled a new Shark reconnaissance unmanned aircraft system which was developed after Russian President Vladimir Putin began a full-scale invasion of Ukraine.

In the time of war in Ukraine, the Ukrspecsystems has developed a new unmanned aircraft system whose primary mission will be surveillance and intelligence gathering using an electro-optical and infrared camera.

The new drone is launched using a collapsible catapult and recovered using a parachute landing system.


The unmanned aircraft’s modular design is provided with several interchangeable payloads allowing for greater mission flexibility.
