Description: The X-13 is a tactical unmanned airborne system designed to provide all-weather Intelligence, Surveillance, Target Acquisition and Reconnaissance (ISTAR) in real-time over ranges of 180 kilometers operating from ships at sea or land facilities. The air vehicle is designed to takeoff using a catapult and landing via a net with automatic approach control and autonomous flight control even at sea state 5. Two X-13 air vehicles can perform operations at longer ranges and low altitudes with one of them flying at high altitudes as a communications relay aircraft to connect with the land/ship control station with the other air vehicle performing the ISTAR mission flying at low altitudes. As of summer 2010 EMT is still developing the X-13 tactical unmanned airborne system.

The X-13 air vehicle modular payload may include infrared, electro-optical or synthetic aperture radar (SAR) sensors such as 8-channel video, daylight color video camera and high resolution digital still camera. Besides, the air vehicle features a jamming resistant data link. De-icing system and emergency locator are provided as standard equipment. The X-13 air vehicle is powered by a heavy fuel injection engine developing a top speed of 180 kph.
