Authored By: Staff Writer | Last Edited: 07/20/2017 | Content ©www.MilitaryFactory.com | The following text is exclusive to this site.
The "Yasir" is an Iranian unarmed, reverse-engineered lightweight, economically-midned, long-ranged Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) based on the American Boeing "ScanEagle" series (detailed elsewhere on this site). The Iranian product is built by Iran Aviation Industries Organization (IAIO) and was developed from a captured ScanEagle specimen reportedly having strayed into Iranian airspace in December 2012. Once its usefulness was expended by the Iranians, the sole captured example was gifted to a Russian Air Force commander during a visit to Iran. The Yasir is believed to be in active service with Iranian and Hezbollah forces as well as flying over Syria in the ongoing Syrian Civil War (2011-Present).

The original ScanEagle, by Boeing subsidiary Insitu, first flew in June of 2002 and was introduced to American forces in 2005 (first with the United States Navy, since then all services operate it). It currently (2017) counts a plethora of global operators from Afghanistan and Australia to the United Kingdom (as the ScanEagle RM.1) and Yemen. Various navies of the world operate the type from warships, the UAV being capable of launching (via catapult) and recovered at-sea by (a relatively simple recovery system). Special forces groups also favor the series.
The ScanEagle's primary role is over-battlefield reconnaissance, able to fly up to 20,000 feet and the design holds and a mission endurance window of around twenty-four hours. Maximum speed is 92 miles per hour (however cruising is closer to 70mph). Power is from a 2-stroke 3W piston 1.5 horsepower engine driving a two-bladed propeller in a pusher arrangement. Its optics set consists of a high-resolution day/night camera fit as well as thermal imagery support.
