Auxiliary drones helping the manned fighter

Loyal Wingman is an AI-equipped unmanned drones that makes it possible for aircraft maker Boeing to support manned aircraft carrying dangerous missions.

The Royal Wingman is officially called Loyal Wingman (Advanced Development Program). It has been designed to complement and expand public missions by acting as a military aircraft and a smart team.

The Royal Wingman is primarily responsible for intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance missions, as well as electronic warfare. Until now, it is not clear whether the Royal Wingman is armed, but it seems technically possible.

The total length of the Royal Wingman is 11.6 meters and the range is 3,700 kilometers. Performance is controlled semi-autonomously by one of the nearby manned fighters or ground control centers. Future aerial battles, such as ground radar identification, jamming, and launching of companion aircraft, may be surrounded by such support drones.

The Royal Wingman’s first flight is scheduled for 2020. For more information, please click here .



Through the monthly AHC PC and HowPC magazine era, he has watched 'technology age' in online IT media such as ZDNet, electronic newspaper Internet manager, editor of Consumer Journal Ivers, TechHolic publisher, and editor of Venture Square. I am curious about this market that is still full of vitality.
