Description: The Sperwer, also known as Ugglan in Sweden and CU-161 in Canada, is a modular, low observable, multi-mission, delta-wing unmanned air vehicle (UAV) designed to provide real time Intelligence, Surveillance, Target Acquisition an Reconnaissance (ISTAR) capabilities in support of land forces. Sagem Defense Securite developed this UAV system in response to the French Army's SDTI (Système de Drones Tactiques Intérimaire or Interim Tactical UAV System) program. The Sperwer UAV family offering more than six hours of flight endurance includes the basic version, a high speed low altitude drone variant and a long endurance variant known as Sperwer B.

The Spervwer air vehicle utilizes a vehicle-mounted ramp for taking off and a combination of parachute and airbags for landing. Its payload includes the synthetic aperture radar (SAR), electronic warfare (EW), communications relay or EUROFLIR optronic gimbaled pod that may include daylight CCD-TV sensor, laser designator/rangefinder and/or day/night Infrared imagery sensor. A single Sperwer system includes a ground control station, ground data terminal with the tactical data link, a vehicle integrated with a catapult launcher and air vehicles. The ground control station can control two air vehicles at the same time.

The Sperwer-HV is a turbo-jet powered, high velocity aerial vehicle evolved from the Sperwer air vehicle which was powered by two-cylinder 65-hp engine. The high speed low altitude air vehicle is optimized for deeper, faster and stealthier penetration of enemy airspace. It is fitted with forward-swept wings and canard foreplanes and results far more survivable to enemy fire due to its higher speed. The Sperwer-HV can fly at 10,000 meters of altitude traveling at 400 knots with a mission radius of over 400 km.
