Based on Barn Owls I wanted to design a type of sentient UAV. It's sole purpose is to provide reconnaissance through a suite of multi spectral cameras, audio receptors, GPS tracking, and radar. The body consists of a light but durable frame with layers of artificial muscle which allow it move like its actual counterpart. Mini-jets located at different locations on the body help it stabilize in flight and when prepping for landing. Radar absorbent paints and fabrics, heat sinks, jamming devices, and noise dampening systems help in keeping the unit hidden from hostile forces. OWL's are typically deployed at night and in pairs to support each other. Typical assignments include aerial recon, stationary recon, and as spotters for gunships, vehicles, artillery, and troops.
