Boeing’s MQ-28 ghost bat drone has been experiment – Let’s see how powerful it is

The US Air Force plans to experiment with Boeing’s MQ-28 Ghost Bat drone to validate technologies crucial to “advancing and fielding next-generation capabilities.”

According to the Deputy Chief of Staff for Air Force Futures, Lt. Gen. Clint Hinote, the army is preparing to take delivery of a drone prototype for the flight experiments.

“It might look a lot like an Australian thing,” he told Breaking Defense, referring to the MQ-28 Ghost Bat developed for the Australian Air Force.

The US Department of Defense (DoD) confirmed the experimentation, saying that its research and engineering office is directly involved in the initiative.

Involvement in Next-Generation CapabilitiesAlthough the Pentagon has not provided details regarding the experiments, it was reported that the MQ-28 could be used as a testbed for manned-unmanned aircraft teaming.

The scheduled tests may be for the planned drone wingman for sixth-generation fighter aircraft.

As part of the Collaborative Combat Aircraft program, the DoD seeks to field one or more types of unmanned aerial vehicles flying alongside one sixth-generation aircraft during operations.

“You’d be integrating these [drones] with existing aircraft in a way which sort of proves out some of the tactics, techniques, and procedures, as well as things like maintenance concepts … and organizational structures,” Air Force Secretary Frank Kendall said.
