U.S. Navy's X-47B Carrier-Capable Stealth UAV achieved significant progress


U.S. Navy's most advanced X-47B stealth UAV made ​​significant progress, the aircraft flied for the first time in cruise mode, and retract the landing gear in flight.

X-47B UAV design with streamlined, aerodynamic performance, do not have tail, partly to improve the stealth performance. But it had no flight test landing gear away, which makes it difficult to test the aerodynamic properties. Further tests will help engineers in a variety of height, speed and fuel conditions, test the performance of the drone.

Northrop - Grumman for the U.S. Navy X-47B. X-47B Navy plans to deploy to the carrier. This UAV is designed to automate aircraft, able to perform multiple tasks faster than propeller-powered UAV - "Predator" unmanned reconnaissance aircraft and the "death" (also translated as individual "Reaper"), no man-machine. X-47B will be able to become the world's first unmanned landing on aircraft carrier. Navy continues to promote the UAV intelligence, so that remote control channel in the ground full load conditions, X-47B will not need to rely on the tower.
