Instant Eye


U.S. Army paratroopers got the chance to learn and operate the 173rd Airborne Brigade’s newest acquisition, the Instant Eye in Pocek, Slovenia, March 04, 2020.

The Instant Eye is a quad-copter (drone) with multiple options for reconnaissance, quick employment and movement that makes this Small Unmanned Aerial System very versatile.

The controls and layout of the system were modeled off of video game controllers making it easier and more familiar for operators to use and master.

The 173rd Airborne Brigade is the U.S. Army’s Contingency Response Force in Europe, providing rapidly deployable forces to Europe, Africa and Central Commands areas of responsibilities.
