Elbit Systems is to provide the artillery corps of the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) with an upgraded version of the Skylark tactical unmanned aerial system (UAS).

A new system will replace the Skylark 1, the Skylark 1 electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL), and will be integrated with the currently operational fleet used by the IDF ground forces.

Weighing up to 20kg, the new Skylark 1 eVTOL is a man-packed or vehicle-based platform offering the endurance and range of a fixed-wing Small Tactical Unmanned Aerial System (STUAS) with the capability to hover, take-off and land vertically. 

Combined with onboard analytical capabilities, the Skylark 1 eVTOL significantly expands the operations of tactical forces and enables fast deployment in order to organically perform Intelligence, Surveillance, Target Acquisition and Reconnaissance (ISTAR) missions.
