Boeing Phantom Ray UAV

Posted by in Gadgets

Pretty impressive sneak peek at Boeing’s upcoming new UAV. Those drones are really reshaping the landscape of aerial military. With no risk for pilot casualties, lower cost (at least a bit), greater autonomy, UAVs offer lots of new possibilites.

â??The autonomous nature of this system is unique, so achieving this milestone speaks volumes about the technology and expertise of Boeing, the Phantom Works organization and the Phantom Ray team,â? said Dave Koopersmith, vice president, Advanced Boeing Military Aircraft.

Phantom Ray is designed to support potential missions that may include intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance; suppression of enemy air defenses; electronic attack; strike; and autonomous aerial refueling.
