The National Aerocosmic Agency of the Ministry of Defense Industry of the Republic of Azerbaijan (MODIAR) presented the Owl Mobile Surveillance System for the first time at ADEX 2022 in Baku.

Developed in cooperation with DefTech, the Owl consists of an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) attached to a MODIAR Gyurza 4×4 patrol vehicle. The undisclosed drone has a quadcopter design with a camera mounted on the side of the airframe.

The aerial vehicle can be extended up to 100m to provide persistent surveillance of an area between 30 and 40 km

. Once airborne, the system can provide a live video feed and track any targets that have been identified. It is supposed to be able to work day and night, as well as in bad weather.

To protect against interference from adversaries, it has a protected data channel and countermeasures to resist jamming. The system can also be used independently of GPS.

As it is mounted on the Gyurza 4×4 patrol vehicle, the owl can be quickly moved to a new position. Customers can also choose to mount it on a different platform if the Gyurza does not meet their requirements.
