Northrop Grumman’s MQ-4C Triton unmanned aircraft is one step closer to serving the Navy in reconnaissance and surveillance missions, having just completed its first flight. The drone spent 80 minutes in the air, reaching an altitude of 20,000 feet. That’s child’s play compared to the aircraft’s full potential: according to the Navy, it can soar at up to 60,000 feet and stay airborne for as long as 30 hours, due in no small part to its 130-foot wingspan. By 2015, the Triton will undergo operational testing and evaluation, and the Navy hopes to add additional aircraft to its existing fleet (currently just two strong). Check out the long-range spy plane in action just past the break.

If Broad Location Maritime Monitoring, or war electronic devices are your bag, then things merely got real. Northrop Grumman has just unveiled the MQ-4C BAMS Triton, the most recent addition to the US Navy’s Maritime Patrol and Reconnaissance Force. The spy plane was than four years in development, has a wingspan of 130.9 feet and is able to cover more than just 2.7 million square miles in a single mission. As you will certainly have been unable to stay clear of seeing, the unmanned aircraft most definitely inherited a couple of the RQ-4 Universal Hawk’s dome-like DNA, and will certainly outline towards active service after finishing useful requirement evaluations and system progression and exhibition flights.
