Paraguay’s Military Technology Takes Flight
By Dialogo October 01, 2011
The first Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) prototype built in Paraguay was successfully tested in August 2011, with a flight between the cities of Limpio and San Bernardino.
The flight was conducted at a speed of 85 kilometers per hour and at a maximum altitude of 330 meters. The UAV’s system allows the operator to remotely control the speed, destination and altitude from a control center. Lead engineer Rodrigo Campos Cervera (pictured, left), and his team are also working on a helicopter prototype with similar technical specifications.

YES, in Paraguay there are also patriots that believe in their virtues...unfortunately, their authorities are formed by associations of political mafia and drug power, influencing against the interests of the republic within all three powers....with an oligarchic media in the hands of a few big shots such as mister Zukopillo from H.C.: color.
