The article focuses on the developments in drone aircraft design unveiled at the Eurosatory exhibition held in Paris, France in June 2006. Saab displayed a full-scale mock-up of its Skeldar V-150 rotorcraft. Honeywell has presented the vertically operated and thermally powered Mav aircraft. The VSR-700 rotorcraft is based on the Cabri helicopter developed by Guimbal and powered by a Lycoming engine.
