Unmanned K-Max headed to Afghanistan

Post by el on Sun Oct 09, 2011 1:05 am

The US Navy has selected the Kaman/Lockheed Martin K-Max helicopter to prove whether unmanned air systems (UAS) are suitable for ferrying supplies around the battlefield.

The deployment, consisting of two airframes, will leave the USA in November 2011 for "a central forward operating base" in Afghanistan. The aircraft, operated by a mixture of US Marine Corps personnel and contractors, will resupply remote outposts autonomously under a six-month pilot programme.

The USMC is operating over a wide area in Afghanistan, but is based primarily in the southwest of the country.

According to the navy, which administers Marine programmes, the K-Max exceeded requirements during a four-day evaluation in Yuma, Arizona, which was meant to simulate operating conditions in Afghanistan
