Xcelaero Corp. of San Luis Obispo, Calif., has unveiled a subscale, subsonic drone that is designed to carry common target and training payloads. The NXT 400, which remains in development, is operated by a three person crew and flies in excess of 400 miles per hour up to 30,000 feet.
Upon arriving on site, the crew can have the aircraft up and flying in about three hours, says a spokesman.
The drone is intended for use by the Air Force, Navy and Army.
The electronic translator weighs 11 ounces and can fit in a standard single ammo pouch.
