Boeing phantom eye conducts medium-speed taxi test

ZoomBoeing phantom eye conducts medium-speed taxi test
Boeing's hydrogen-powered unmanned aerial vehicle, designed for persistent intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR), and communications has conducted its first medium speed taxi test.
 
The test was conducted March 10 at Edwards Air Force Base in coordination with the NASA Dryden Flight Research Center.
 
Phantom Eye, reached speeds of up to 30 knots as ground teams relayed directions and information using Boeing's advanced Common Open-mission Management Command and Control (COMC2) software.
 
"The aircraft performed well and the data collected will help populate our models," said Drew Mallow, Boeing Phantom Eye program manager. "This test brings us one step closer to our first flight."
 
With its 150-foot wingspan, the UAV is designed to fly at an altitude of up to 65,000 feet and stay airborne for up to four days while carrying a 450-pound payload.
 
"Phantom Eye's hydrogen-powered propulsion system, matched with its exceptional fuel economy and robust endurance, ushers in a new realm of possibilities for potential customers' long-endurance ISR missions," said James Dodd, Advanced Boeing Military Aircraft vice president, Boeing Phantom Works.
 
For more attend Electric Vehicles Land Sea Air USA 2012 External Link,where Phoenix International - A John Deere Company (leader in agricultural vehicles), BMW (cars etc), Mitsubishi Motors (small commercial vehicles and cars), Daimler AG (commercial and military vehicles and cars) and Toyota (leader in electric forklifts, cars, buses) will present. Uniquely, a large number of electric vehicle manufacturers not seen in conventional EV events will present including WheelTug airliner electrification on the ground, Pipistrel manned electric aircraft, University of Michigan unmanned solar aircraft, SolTrac electric farm tractors, Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute Autonomous Underwater Vehicles AUVs. Many manufacturers of industrial, commercial, military, e-bike, cars and other EVs will be there. At last you can meet those responsible for the majority of the hybrid and pure electric vehicle market and they all need components!! Most are prosperous growing businesses not reliant on government support that can be withdrawn at any time.
