In July 2014, Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) revealed the latest model of Bird-Eye UAS models, the 650D. The 650D's engine has been upgraded from electrical to internal combustion, giving it an endurance of 24 hours.
The aircraft can be launched from naval vessels using a catapult and recovered with a variety of systems, including a parachute. The BirdEye 650D may carry a 2.8 kg stabilized payload with a cooled IR and TV camera from Controp called the T-Stamp. BirdEye can transmit sensor data via a Direct Line-of-Sight (LOS) data link.
