Teng Yun (which means "cloud rider" in Chinese) was first developed in 2015 by the National Chung-Shan Institute of Science and Technology (NCSIST), the primary research and development institution of Taiwan's Ministry of National Defense (MND). The first version of the UAV was unveiled at TADTE 2015.

The new Teng Yun has an enhanced thrust, greater range, and multiple payloads. It also has an enhanced flight control system and a triple-backup power system.

The UAV is capable of automatic take-off and landing, multi-vehicle control, ground network control and real-time video transmission, allowing it to conduct coastal patrol, environmental research, surveillance and reconnaissance tasks.

Teng Yun possesses an operating range in excess of 1,000 km, flight endurance of 24 hours, and a ceiling of 25,000 ft (7,620 m).
