Iranian experts have succeeded to build a vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) drone which will be unveiled in the coming months according to Mehr News Agency (MNA).


The drone is being manufactured by researchers from the Mazandaran Science and Technology Park.

It is the first time that such a drone is being manufactured in the world. It will be unveiled during the festivities marking the 34th anniversary of the Islamic Revolution in mid-winter.

“This drone which enjoys ultra-modern technology and is being built for the first time in the world will be unveiled in Bahman (Jan. 20-Feb. 18), concurrent with the ten-day dawn celebrations,” Abbas Jam, the Lead Researcher, told the Mehr News Agency.

The drone does not require runways at all and can take off and land vertically.

“The drone is soundless and does not need runway for take-off,” Jam added.

The drone was tested last Saturday at the presence of the Director of the Aerospace Industry Organization and senior officials from the Passive Defense Organization.
