Boeing Loyal Wingman / ATS
Страна: США
Год: 2021
Беспилотный

1 марта 2021г. в Австралии на полигоне Вумера состоялся первый полет беспилотного аппарата Loyal Wingman, созданного по концепции «верный ведомый» региональным подразделением Boeing Australia.
The mock-up for Boeing's ATS was unveiled at the Avalon International Airshow 2019 under Plan Jericho.
According to Boeing the Loyal Wingman air vehicle measures 38ft in length. Scaling this shot, the depth of the fuselage appears to be in the order of 6 to 7ft and the vertical stabilisers a little closer to 8ft when measured from the fuselage underside.
As modern unmanned air vehicle designs go, Boeing’s Loyal Wingman has an unusual, but graceful form featuring typical low-observability characteristics; an angular fuselage cross section, narrow air inlets, and cantered vertical stabilisers.
5 мая 2020г. в Сиднее региональное подразделение Boeing Australia представило первый опытный образец перспективного БПЛА Loyal Wingman, который послужит основой для системы ATS (Airpower Teaming System), разрабатываемой Boeing для мирового рынка вооружений.
The Boeing Airpower Teaming System's initial flight is planned for later this year.
Boeing announced that the first major structural assembly for its ATS was completed on February 9, 2020.
