The American Navy is still testing its newest toy, Triton – the biggest unmanned in her arsenal. The machine has successfully completed its latest mission, which was flew over the United States.
In just a few years, the unmanned will play a key role in the battlefields, so the US Army is constantly working on new technology, and Triton is the most promising example. This is the largest unmanned aerial vehicle in the arsenal of the Northrop Grumman armament. At the moment, the machine is actually controlled by a ground crew, but will soon be operating completely alone.
UAV in March of this year completed his first tests, and now he was succeeded by another passage that was flying over the United States. The mission lasted a total of 11 hours and during that time Triton flew a distance of 3290 nautical miles. The trip began with Northrop Grumman in Palmdale, California, and the route ran over the southern US border to end at Naval Air Station in Patuxent River.
