Drakonit applied to robot vehicles

Further to the integration of the Drakonit (Dragon) to the Israeli Defence Forces (IDF) fleet of UAVs, which enables soldiers to fire at targets without exiting their armed vehicle, the system is now being applied to other autonomous systems.

The Drakonit is being installed on additional remote-controlled robot vehicles. The vehicles are now operational in the most militarily sensitive areas and the plan is for the scope of operations to be expanded.

Consistent improvements are being made in terms of improving accuracy, observation and finer engineering adjustments, but at present there are no plans to implement any major changes.
