Raven UAV procurement deal occurred in 2010, supplied by M-Landarch Co Ltd as agency of AeroVironment Inc. In the 2010 M-Landarch also successfully done the FLIR airborne payload camera with completed downlink transmission systems from Microwave Radio Communication (MRC) company onto the RTA’s Bell 212 and supplied Enstrom light training helicopter to the Army Aviation.


The RQ-11B Raven unmanned aircraft system comprises a 1.9 kg, backpackable, hand-launched sensor platform that provides day and night, real-time video imagery wirelessly to a portable ground control station for "over the hill" and "around the corner" reconnaissance, surveillance and target acquisition in support of tactical units. Each Raven system typically consists of three aircraft, two ground control stations and spares.


The Raven can be operated manually or programmed for autonomous operation, utilizing the system's advanced avionics and precise GPS navigation. With a wingspan of 137cm and a weight of 1.9 kg, the hand-launched Raven provides aerial observation, day or night, at line-of-sight ranges up to 10 kilometers and has a flight endurance of 60–90 minutes. The Raven delivers real-time color or infrared imagery to the ground control and remote viewing stations.
