The Israeli army is to buy a fleet of cheap so-called “suicide drones” that can loiter in the air before being dropped on their targets via a tablet app, according to reports.
According to Haaretz, an executive at Israel Aerospace Industry (IAI) said the Israeli army was considering deployment of unmanned “Rotem”, a Hebrew acronym for “attack and suicide drone”.
The drone is capable of carrying grenades and a camera and can be carried on the back of Israeli soldiers.
Unlike traditional unmanned aircraft, such as the US Reaper which requires trained pilots, runways and expensive support technology, the smaller, less expensive “suicide drones” are man-portable and can be operated from a tablet computer.
