Lockheed Martin Reveals Drone Features

Dec 02, 2013 No Comments by

Northrop Grumman, which engineers the Navy’s Fire Scout unmanned helicopter and the Air Force’s Global Hawk surveillance plane in San Diego, Calif., recently showed off two smaller drones at the company’s burgeoning Rancho Bernardo offices.

The defense giant has 2,000 employees at its San Diego “unmanned systems center of excellence” and recently took occupancy of an eighth building there. And it wants to expand into new territory.

U-T San Diego spoke to George Vardoulakis, Northrop Grumman vice president for medium-range tactical systems, about the two smaller drones, the Bat and the R-Bat. He also discussed the new, beefed-up Navy Fire Scout.
