Description: The I-VIEW is a close-range tactical UAV system suitable for surveillance, target acquisition and artillery adjustment missions. It uses automatic catapult assisted launch and automatic precision parachute recovery. Therefore, the I-VIEW doesn't require runaways being extremely suitable for front-line battlefield operations. However, takeoff and landing operations can be performed on runways. The I-VIEW UAV family was developed by IAI's Malat Division.
The I-VIEW 165 has been qualified to carry Infrared (IR) and CCD-TV payloads as well as customized payloads according to the operator needs. It provides real-time imagery and video.

Russia8 Unmanned aerial system purchased along with Bird Eye 400 and Searcher Mk II UAVs in April 2009 to meet the requirements for tactical reconnaissance UAVs to provide reliable battlefield intelligence. The lack of such capability was a grave deficiency experienced by the Russian Armed Forces during the South Ossetia conflict against Georgia in August 2008.
