US Navy and Boeing use manned jet to control drone Growlers


Recommended Posts

WASHINGTON — The U.S. Navy and Boeing demonstrated the ability to control unmanned aircraft with a manned jet, a capability that is critical for concepts intended to keep naval aviation relevant into the 21st century.

The Navy’s test wing out of Naval Air Station Patuxent River, Maryland, flew two unmanned E/A-18G Growlers, with a third manned fighter acting as mission control for the drones, according to a Feb. 4 news release from Boeing. https://www.c4isrnet.com/naval/2020/02/04/us-navy-and-boeing-demonstrate-controlling-unmanned-aircraft-with-a-manned-jet/
