Robot Aircraft Carrier Drone on FutureWeapons (Part 1 of 2)

This is a clip (part 1 of 2) from FutureWeapons documenting the Northrop Grumman X-47B UCAS (Unmanned Combat Air System). Recent advances in robotics, sensors and artificial intelligence are used to engineer a drone aircraft that can perform naval missions and land on aircraft carriers autonomously. To develop this system, virtual prototyping and simulations are linked to actual aircraft control system hardware so engineers are able to monitor how the computer will operate the aircraft. This will ensure that the robot will perform as expected before it is built.

    It’s only a matter of time before one of these is carrying AMRAAM or JDAM weapons, and then the Navy is going to really start having fun. Now with the SWORDS and UAV projects, the whole combat arms section of the US Military is going to end up unmanned.

  13. Listen up Billy Bob …
    Listen up Billy Bob, dont make yourself look rediculous. Ignoring the fact that US is bankrupt, and losing its position as a superpower is a sign of weakness. I’m not bout to explain you the same over nd over again, cuz that’d be useless since ur a dumb brainwashed cowboy somewhere in Texas. Because of people like you people like Bush control your country nd up things. Soon youll be singin duck nd cover, like in the 50’s hah dumass

  14. So i got some …
    So i got some advice for you arty y. One day the US wont be a super power. Then the little people like you may celebrate. But unfortunatly for the little people, it hasnt happened yet, and it probably wont happen this lifetime. So just go to the back yard, chop me some wood, get some stale bread and water, and tell your wife polina to rub your feet. One day your time will come, loser. LOL

  15. LOL what a tool. I …
    LOL what a tool. I just typed in “stupid russians” and a bunch of videos popped up. There are stupid people everywhere. This just goes to show me that you know nothing of the world…just what you see on youtube. What ignorance. We havent lost afghanistan, russians did, for sure. Iraq went badly but after the surge, attacks went down almost 80%, so its obvious that you dont know . Im sure u noticed how at the start of that video, the guy proclaims the US runs the world…so very true. LOL

  16. lol cowboys stay …
    lol cowboys stay cowboys, i have no words for you… All the US has proven is that it cant win the war in Iraq for 8 years now. If you were educated you’d know not to around with midle east, but ur dumb, that why u lost war in Aghanistan, Iraq and Georgia. But it’s okay, the world knows americans are the most dumb ppl on planet earth. Check this video and roll over the floor loughing ur off:

  17. stop being an angry …
    stop being an angry little village dweller. The states haev the most advanced military you ing idiot. It has proven that above all else. Stealth, nuclear power, communications, basically everything acroos the board. Its obvious that you are one angry uneducated moron, that wish his country couldve been as great as the US. NO more develpment aid for you and your people village dweller! LOL

    LOL wow you try really hard. Where in south america did you go? You know what, nevermind. Your full of .

You havent done , and thats obvious. LOw life.

  19. Been to africa, …
    Been to africa, been to south america, been to asia, been in the states. You probably haven’t even been outside texas eh cowboy? Yes ur military tech is good, maybe thats why ur apaches r being blowed out of the sky with simple AK’s… hah

  20. LOL to russia with …
    LOL to russia with oudated military tech, You obviously dont travel much. Ever been to africa? Southern mexico? There are worse places by far, than the US. China just injected a 550 billion dollar stimulus package for its ailing economy. So…travel the world, meet some people, maybe visit the states, and put down that stale bread, and wake up. LOL
    Kind Regards
    From the US wid cutting edge, fully funded military tech LOL
