ExecutiveGov reports that Layne Merritt, head of U.S. Army’s Aviation Development Directorate, “said the service plans to conduct a series of demonstrations for a new fleet of air-launched unmanned aircraft in the coming years, Defense News reported Tuesday.” The military branch “looks to develop a capability to deploy drones from a larger aircraft and perform advanced manned-unmanned teaming for reconnaissance, surveillance, long-range targeting, attack, decoy, resupply and casualty evacuation missions.” The Army “plans to begin testing the unmanned aircraft this fall aboard a UH-60 Black Hawk helicopter flying at a lower altitude, about 100 feet or less, Merritt said.” (Image: UH-60 Black Hawk from 2nd Cavalry Regiment.
