Navy moves closer to common control system
The Navy is working to integrate the MQ-25 Stingray drone onto aircraft carriers.
The much anticipated UAV will be a tanker for aerial refueling. This, senior leaders said, would allow highly reliable aircraft, some with specifically tailored capabilities such as the premier aerial electronic attack aircraft, the EA-18G Growler, increase its range in the face of anti-access, area-denial environments, which seek to push adversaries farther away.
With this announcement, the Navy must ready itself from an integration standpoint to support the new UAS platform — building upon the successes of the X-47B demonstrator aircraft tests. At this early stage in the program, which will encompass many Navy system commands, one official is pleased by the coordination taking place.
