Ukrainian engineers have developed a new reconnaissance drone named WarDog, which can conduct reconnaissance in complex terrain and under enemy electronic warfare (EW) influence.

This was reported by Mykhailo Fedorov on his Telegram channel.

The WarDog system ensures reconnaissance even in case of GPS signal suppression and operates in various flight modes: autonomous, semi-autonomous, and manual. The drone can remain airborne for up to 60 minutes at distances of up to 10 km with communication and up to 30 km in autopilot mode. Its speed ranges from 12 to 15 m/s.

WarDog drones have already been successfully used within the Army of Drones project. They effectively perform combat missions in the Zaporizhzhia and Kharkiv directions. Trials of WarDog were also conducted near Kramatorsk, where the drone operated under GPS signal conditions at an altitude of over 50 meters.

Among the advantages of WarDog, military personnel note its stability in flight even in the absence of GPS signal. This means that the drone can effectively function steadily in strong winds, allowing for a clearer image and focus. Thanks to this feedback from the military, developers have improved the UAV functionality to make the "artillery eye" even sharper.
