The electronics titans square off in a tangled tale of mobile technology, centered on Apple's iPhone
Some days, an aircraft wants to be more than just a troop transport. The Bell Boeing V-22 program is now trying out the tilt-rotor Osprey to see how it might fare as a flying gas station.
BAE Systems to deliver remotely operated, 360-degree, belly gun for V-22.
The Pentagon is developing unmanned aircraft for supply runs that can be controlled from a mobile phone or tablet -- think of it as Amazon drones in olive drab.
More than two dozen advanced weapons systems are said to have been accessed. Documents obtained by the Washington Post do not indicate whether the breaches occurred on government or contractor networks.
The Pentagon is looking ahead several decades toward future fleets of rotorcraft -- and working now to lay the plans for getting there.
And by future, we're talking 2030. Let's just hope the planners, builders, and budgeteers keep an open mind to how technology evolves over the next two decades.
An experimental unmanned flying cargo system, Baldwin Technology's Mono Tiltrotor, would integrate a coaxial rotor, a folding lifting wing system, and a lightweight airframe.
