Description: The Iskatel, 'Searcher' in English, is a man-portable mini-UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) developed by the Popov Omsk Radio Factory for the Russian Airborne Forces (VDV). The short range mini air vehicle is referred to as the T-4 UAV. The Russian military may deploy the Iskatel either in a smaller variant or a long endurance variant. The smaller Iskatel can be carried by one man using a backpack which includes two T-4s, base station with guidance antenna and tablet control computer. The heavier long endurance Iskatel may need two paratroopers with the T-4 weighing less than 10 kilograms. The smaller Iskatel weighs 1.3 kg and can remain airborne for 40 minutes using an electrically driven tail-mounted propeller. The T-4 mini-UAV is designed to provide imagery from an altitude of 200 meters but can operate at altitudes of up to 4,000 meters in mountainous terrain. The Russian Airborne Forces started flight and carriage trials for the evaluation of the Iskatel mini-UAV system in December 2012.
