Each $100,000 Dragon Eye unit has three aircraft, a ground control station (radio transmitter / receiver, laptop) and maintenance equipment. Operator's training requires less than a week, for soldiers to be able to operate them.
The new system, currently under development, will have a new Level-4 compliant communications control board, with 16 software selectable channels, for uplink and downlink, twice the current capacity.
