Unmanned Systems Demo
 
So I recently participated in an Unmanned Systems Demonstration a couple weeks ago for industry members and military. Below are a couple group shots of the unmanned aircraft and ground vehicles that conducted a participative scenario for the demonstration. It was a great day that really showcased everybody's capabilities.

It's actually an early 90s Nissan Hardbody that was turned into an unmanned truck. Note the .50 cal mounted in the bed... :thumbsup:

The chopper one looks like the RQ-8, better known as the Firescout, though i have only seen them in orange or grey, never a white one. Oh yeah, is that tin can looking one made by BAE? I have seen something very similar to it, made out of Ontario Ca.

You're correct... It's a RQ-8B Firescout... in "Grumman" colors (White & Blue) for trade shows.. the tin can (I'm assuming you mean the flying trashcan) is made by Aurora (www.aurora.aero) and is called the Goldeneye 80.

Seems that you have some experience in the field...? :)

Yeah a lil, but mainly the larger UAV's, much larger, LOL.

So either GA with the RQ-1/MQ-9 or NG with the RQ-4...

See if you can find it... I work for the company that makes the XMQ-19A... :D
