The drone market is no longer limited to large industrial military / civilian powerhouses, having since opened up in the last two decades to smaller entities interesting in making their own imprint in the potentially lucrative field. C-Astral of Slovenia is one such provider offering a whole slew of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) centered on the Intelligence-Surveillance-Reconnaissance (ISR) role. One of its modern offerings, the Bramor C4EYE, is designed to operate at the tactical level, providing ground-based warfighters with a critical "eye-in-the-sky" capability.

The aircraft takes on a blended wing-body planform with a centralized tubular fuselage meshed with the swept-back mainplanes. Each wing is capped by a winglet which serve as the vertical planes for added control. The propulsion scheme is wholly-electric (involving hot-swappable battery packs) and drives a two-bladed propeller unit at the rear of the design in pusher configuration. At the nose is the traversing optics set. As a non-combat drone, the payload of the aircraft is restricted to various EO / IR / LI optics fits. Video and data are streamed up to 40km in real-time or near-real-time to ground commanders for evaluation. The C4EYE is marketed with a mission endurance window of approximately 3.5 hours allowing the single unit to cover upwards of 30 square kilometers of territory in one outing. It can sustain flight in winds reaching 30 knots. Navigation is completely autonomous and allows for ground operator interruption.

Dimensions are compact enough, and weight is serviceable enough, to allow the broken down unit to be transported in a backpack. Operation can be handled by a single operator though two persons is the typical commitment.

Launching of the unit is by way of CAT1 foldable / collapsing elastic "catapult" while retrieval is through a deployed parachute retarding the descent of the drone for reuse. The datalink is entirely encrypted for secure communications with the ground-based control unit. The unit can be made ready-to-fly in under five minutes. Body construction is a mix of composites including Kevlar.

The C4EYE reportedly does not reveal a radar signature due to its relative compact size and electric power scheme.
