IAI to unveil solar-powered UAV

Israel Aircraft Industries Ltd. (IAI) will shortly unveil a solar-powered unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV).

The UAV runs off solar power and stores the power to continue to operate during nighttime operations as well. IAI will also display its computerized fluid dynamics (CFD) system, which helps design the aerodynamics of aircraft. IAI used the system in the design of its new G150 Gulfstream executive jet, built together with Gulfstream Inc. Thanks to the system, the G150 has a better performance than in the original design.
