The World Of Drones Are Changing

Posted By on March 6, 2016

It’s great when we have this technology, but what happens when everyone else ends up with it?  Maybe not so great then…huh

 

From Boeing:

 

This all new unmanned drone has incredible capability.

It currently can stay aloft for 4 days but soon will soon stay up

10 days. While designed as a surveillance platform, it carries

a 5 ton payload that includes   Hellfire missiles. Flying at 65,000

feet – the very edge of space, it is just about out of range of

antiaircraft missiles.   Propellers are driven by Ford Ranger 4

cylinder engines fueled by hydrogen.

 

Boeing’s New Spy Plane  General Characteristics:

Wingspan :   150 ft. (46 m)
Takeoff gross weigh 9,800 lbs. (4,445 kg)
Cruise speed :150 knots.
Maximum speed :200 knots.
Altitude :65,000 ft.
Engines :   (2) 2.3L 150 horsepower
Endurance : 4 days at 65,000 ft.
 
In summary, the wingspan is equal to the width of a good size
building lot. It’s relatively light (at 5 ton), slow, flies at twice the
altitude of commercial transport. It’s powered by 2 truck engines
and stays aloft for 4 days.
