Elbit Skylark II

Introduction
Elbit Systems II is an unmanned aerial vehicle developed by Elbit Systems.

A unique electrically propelled tactical UAS combining silent electric propulsion with a high quality EO/IR/Laser payload, Skylark® II is capable of flying covertly at low altitudes and under cloud cover. It provides day and night target detection, positive identification and continuous tracking undetected.

The Skylark® II system is highly expeditionary, requiring only two light vehicles and a single trailer for system mobilization and deployment with no infrastructure or ground recovery system required. The electric propulsion of the air vehicle eliminates the need for air vehicle refueling and reduces engine maintenance. Skylark® II is highly autonomous and simple to operate with mission effective modes such as fly-by-camera. Skylark® II was selected by the IDF as its Brigade-Level UAS.

Design and Development
Skylark II was unveiled in 2006. It has a range of 60 km and designed to be operated by a two-person crew and deployed using HMMWV class field vehicles. In December 2007, South Korea decided to purchase Skylark II system.
