Description: The Falco is a turboprop-powered, medium altitude, tactical Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) developed by Galileo Avionica, a Finmeccanica's company, to meet the requirements of wide spectrum of customers for ground observation using advanced optronics and electronic surveillance. It was the first UAV system receiving the Italian Civil Aviation Authority Permission to Fly on 15 June 2005. As of July 2016, the Falco unmanned air vehicle has been ordered by five international customers with more than 50 air vehicles produced so far.

The Falco can achieve and sustain speeds to 40 meters per second (114 kph or 87 mph) carrying a payload of 70 kg with a flight endurance varying from 8 to 14 hours depending on payload weight. The payload options include FLIR sensor, CCD-TV, multisensor platform, and spotter of laser range finder. Some Falco's aircraft subsystems are redundant to enhance survivability in a malfunction/damage event. Take-off and landing operations can be done through a conventional airfield or using a ramp for short take-off.
