Firebird is a medium altitude and long endurance manned or unmanned aerial vehicle.
The optionally piloted vehicle (OPV) works as an intelligence gathering system and can execute intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) missions.
Flying at a maximum altitude of 9,100m, the Firebird can render its operators with real time high definition videos, infra-red imagery and electronic message listening capability by carrying out surveillance and reconnaissance operations over large areas.
Firebird was first unveiled to the public in May 2011 at Empire Challenge 2011, a military exercise conducted by the US Joint Forces Command in Fort Huachuca, Arizona.
