The German Army makes use of the compact EMT "Aladin" lightweight, reusable reconnaissance drone. The aircraft is primarily controlled remotely by ground personnel and adds an "eye in the sky" capability once lacking for infantry-level operations. The Aladin series has already seen combat use in the skies over Afghanistan with German and Dutch forces and the product has also been installed in German Army reconnaissance vehicles to further broaden tactical capabilities for its mechanized forces.
Externally, the Aladin is arranged as a conventional aircraft with the fuselage positioned at center making up most of its mass. A slim tail stem holds a "T-style" tail unit at rear. The twin-bladed propeller unit is fitted to the nose of the drone and the optics set (video-relay day/night capable) is at the belly position. Over the fuselage is the wing mainplane.
