The UAV can be radio-controlled via a portable control station, or fly according to previously set GPS coordinates. It features a day and night camera and video-relay. It can be transported in two suitcases, which contain the disassembled drone, and a backpack with the control station. The aircraft can be assembled and disassembled without tools in the field within five minutes.

This UAV is used by the German Army in the northern part of Afghanistan. In May 2006, The Netherlands bought 10 Aladins for use in southern Afghanistan (Uruzgan), though in 2008 the Dutch program procured 24 systems of the AeroVironment Raven B.
