Description: The Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) Ghost is a 4-kg small hovering unmanned platform designed to provide real-time intelligence to ground forces operating in urban areas. The air vehicle is fitted with an automatic vertical takeoff and landing system. Its twin rotary electrical engines provide loitering for up to 30 minutes while operating silently day and night. The Ghost control console is based on the principles of computer games which makes the system extremely intuitive to operate with little training. The Ghost was first showcased by IAI at the AUVSI's Unmanned Systems North America August 2011 in Washington DC.

The Ghost system can be carried in backpacks by two soldiers. A single system includes two air vehicles, batteries, and the command and control (C2) unit with communications equipment. Its simplicity and ease of operation make the system also suitable for paramilitary and homeland security applications.
