A private Israeli company that specializes in design, development and production of Micro, Mini and tactical Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS).

The company provides UAVs to the Israeli army and Ministry of Defense.

BlueBird products have been used during air strikes by the Israeli Air Force during military assaults on Gaza in 2008-9 and 2014 and on Lebanon in 2006. Company UAVs were also used in military campaigns in the West Bank.

According to the company’s website, during the summer of 2014, its SpyLite UAVs “operated around the clock”, and “logged over 700 operational sorties of over 3 hours each” in Israeli military attacks in the West Bank and Gaza. The SpyLite is marketed as ‘combat proven.’
