The system is designed for a battle area reconnaissance. Due to small dimensions and used materials it remains invisible both for visual observation and for radar systems.

“Columba” is quickly deployed, reliable in operation, resistant to mechanical and thermal effects, protected from moisture. The control is performed both in manual and in automatic modes, including automatic takeoff and landing. Complex is able to determine the coordinates of objects and perform their tracking.

Because of gyrostabilized optoelectronic system, installed on the underside of the plane wings, the system conducts surveillance, reveals targets and provides target designation at considerable distances in all directions of the down hemisphere, including the backward. Obtained information is transmitted to the ground control station via secure communication channel.
