The Navy this week showed us a glimpse of a drone which might see us, but that we will likely never see. The Triton unmanned aircraft system completed its first flight on May 22, 2013. The surveillance drone is designed to fly up to 24 hours at a time at altitudes of more than 10 miles, allowing coverage out to 2,000 nautical miles.
