By on Monday, November 5th, 2012

A domestically-produced unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) with vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) capability will be showcased in Iran early next year, the Mehr news agency reported on Sunday.

The UAV, which is being manufactured by researchers from the Mazandaran Science and Technology Park, is due to be unveiled during events to mark the 34th anniversary of the Islamic Revolution in the country.

“This drone which enjoys ultra-modern technology and is being built for the first time in the world will be unveiled in Bahman [January 20 - February 18], concurrent with the ten-day dawn celebrations,” the agency quoted lead researcher Abbas Jam as saying.

“The drone is soundless and does not need runway for take-off,” he said.
