One action figure in a film often makes many people in the world inspired to pour in the form of his works. Only six years ago after serving a movie Stealth, a Northrop Grumman company recently rumored to have developed a type of robot’s first stealth fighter in the world and was named X-47b. Robot-controlled stealth aircraft without crew, has successfully completed the appropriate test flight for 29 minutes above 5000 feet and landed with a smooth running at Edwards Air Force Base, located in California, USA.
This type of robot X-47b is a top secret project company cooperation with Northrop Grumman United States navy who had swallowed a total of $ 635,000,000, or approximately 6.35 biliun rupiah. Robotic unmanned jet has a range and greater power to perform the action takes off from an aircraft carrier, equipped with laser-controlled bomb ammunition and capable of performing refueling in the air.
Proper test flight that has lasted more than a year is an initial step to demonstrate the latest figure from robot type stealth fighter jet of the first in the world. And calibaration have calibaration was reportedly found a new type of robot will be used for military purposes in 2013 that will come.
X-47b is able to perform flight with a top speed of “high subsonic”, which he says is much faster than the Predator aircraft and UAVs such as Reaper aircraft that have been there before. Both wings of the aircraft-like wings of bats has long 62.1 feet (18.9280 meters), the maximum charged 4500 pounds (2 tons more), equipped with a number of sensor systems and a range of more than 2100 nautical miles (3379.6224 km). Even more great again, robot fighter jet can be controlled remotely (remote) or further programmed for purposes of a particular mission.
Equipped with the ability to fly more than 40,000 feet, or about 12,192 feet, this robot can be used as spy planes or aircraft reconnaissance for intelligence missions, precision attack and detect ballistic missiles exists. Prior to flight tested using the aircraft carrier, the aircraft is also scheduled robots will be no more additional flight test again at the Naval Air Station Patuxent River.
In addition to this type of X-47b, there are reportedly still unmanned combat air vehicles that will soon follow the other tested the stealth fighter’s Taranis unmanned England. And reportedly will also be tested this in 2011.
