Description: The Skeldar V-200 is a cost-effective rotary-wing VTOL (Vertical Take Off and Landing) Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) developed by Saab for both military and civil applications. The basic system consists of two VTOL UAVs, a control station, EO/IR (Electro-Optical/Infrared), SAR (Synthetic Aperture Radar), and/or EW (Electronic Warfare) suite payloads. Its primary roles are target acquisition and designation, surveillance, reconnaissance, and electronic warfare. Compared to its predecessor, the V-150, the V-200 incorporates a heavy fuel engine suitable for both maritime and land-based operations. Saab unveiled the Skeldar V-200 unmanned rotorcraft at AUVSI convention in Washington DC, USA, in August 2011.

The new heavy fuel engine is provided by Hirth Motors. The Skeldar V-200 has a 220 kg maximum take-off weight and can carry several payload options up to 40 kg of weight. It has an endurance of 5-7 hours and has been demonstrated and tested in several countries, and on land as well as from ship deck.
