The X-47B unmanned combat air system demonstrator was tested Saturday and Sunday during flight operations aboard the USS Theodore Roosevelt. It also made arrested landings and catapult landings. Each 45-minute flight was monitored by mission operators from a command and control unit. The flights are believed to be a significant step toward incorporating UAVs into Navy carrier operations.
