According to Mathew Klunder, the Navy’s research chief, this unmanned helicopter is a huge leap ahead in technology. According to a press statement released by him, the helicopter would be capable of carrying upto 5,000 pounds of cargo.
The system was put to test by the Navy’s program which was successful in test runs that were carried out at Quantico’s Marine Corps Base. All that was needed was 1/2 an hour of training with a tablet and a special application. These helicopters are so technologically advanced that it seems almost as if they have a mind of their own. If they spot an obstacle in their path they are capable of picking their own routes and can even alter their destination.
Future Plansaircrafts have some distinct benefits in different avenues and their benefits will be leveraged even further in the coming years.
Another plan involves building a completely new type of aircraft within the next ten years. This aircraft could help soldiers in carrying out raids and selecting targets for attack.
