Boeing aims to set endurance record with Hummingbird UAV

04/1/2008 | Aviation Week & Space Technology

Boeing hopes to set a new world record for endurance flights with its A160T Hummingbird unmanned air vehicle. The flights are supported by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, and the goal is to prove the extended range of the large vertical takeoff and landing unmanned air system. "The range, endurance and payload are unique for a rotary-wing UAV, and we think it can provide a variety of missions all at the same time. We've proved we can get there quickly, stay a long time and fly to places that commanders think are important," said Boeing Advanced Systems' business development director Grady Eakin.
