The Drone Index: RemoEye 015

August 10, 2015

South Korean RemoEye 015 UAV

The RemoEye 015 is the largest in a series of light UAVs made by Uconsystem, a subsidiary of a South Korean conglomerate. The RemoEye was introduced 10 years ago together with its siblings, the 002B and the 006, either of which have enjoyed limited export success.

Uconsystem already sold small numbers of its RemoEyes to the UAE and Bolivia. Exports of the 015, however, are unknown. It’s an obscure UAV lurking in the margins of a saturated market.

The 015 is modeled after MALE UAVs developed in the US and Israel–note the distinct V-tail. It isn’t designed to carry weapons, however. The 015’s five foot, nine-inch airframe is made of composite materials and supports retractable tricycle landing gear. Its wingspan is 10.5 feet long. Its nose blister supports an infrared camera on a gimbal.

The 015 can be operated from a mobile two-man ground control station and manages four hours of mission time. Its top speed is 170 kilometers per hour although its range is just 40 km.

The 015 runs on a small propeller-driven gasoline engine.
