The Tarantula-Hawk takes off vertically and hovers to get a clear view of the ground ahead of troops.
It is used by the British Army in Afghanistan, clearing routes without risking human life and checking for roadside bombs.
Talisman is the army unit using T-Hawk. It is a counter-IED task force and uses specialist equipment, including this drone, to clear routes for large convoys.
