Navy's Triton drone completes first cross-country flight [w/video]
If you're looking at the above image and thinking, "Hey, that looks familiar," there's a reason – the MQ-4 is the Navy's modified version of the US Air Force's RQ-4B Global Hawk. This particular UAV has been optimized, according to Defense News, for the Navy's maritime environments with a reinforced airframe, enhanced de-icing and lightning protection. This should allow it to cut through cloud layers for more detailed peeks at ships and ground forces.
Take a look below for video of the MQ-4 during its takeoff from California to its landing in Maryland.
