US Navy and Boeing Use Manned Jet to Control Drone Growlers

by MAC



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.

I, have conflicted feelings, about manless jet-fighter but it can save pilots, from being captured, but still, man is needed if of the birds suffers some kind of navigational glitch.
