Unmanned aerial system Leleka-100 is a fully automatic UAV system suitable for common military, industrial, and commercial tasks. The main advantage of this system is advanced inertial navigation, which allows operating in a harsh and GPS-denied environment.

The system can be equipped with EO and IR gimbals. It has a quiet and reliable electric motor, which allows operations at low altitudes without being noticed.

LELEKA-100 UAV can carry a wide range of different payloads, which can be quickly replaced thanks to the modular design of the drone. Double-axes camera gimbals are gyro-stabilized and remotely controlled in the directions of the flight.
