The Air Force Turned an F-16 Fighter Into a Drone

空军将F16战机变成无人机



The U.S. Air Force turned an F-16 fighter into an autonomous combat drone capable of flying combat missions on its own and then returning to fly alongside a manned aircraft. The program, known as "Have Raider II," could lead to older U.S. fighters acting as semi-disposable wingmen for more modern planes, conducting missions too dangerous for manned aircraft to carry out.

美国空军将一架F16战机变成了一架自主的无人战斗机,可以在有人驾驶战机的陪同下自己执行飞行战斗任务并返回。这个项目叫做“拥有袭击者2”,可以把老式美国战机当成更加现代的战机的僚机,让它来执行对于有人驾驶飞机来说太过危险的任务。

The program was recently validated after a two week exercise at Edwards Air Force Base involving the Air Force Research Lab, the U.S. Air Force Test Pilot School, Lockheed Martin, and Calspan Corporation, according to a press release by Lockheed Martin.

根据洛克希德马丁公司的新闻稿,这个项目在最近得到了批准,在此之前在爱德华兹空军基地进行了两周的训练,参与者包括空军实验研究室,美国空军试飞员学校,洛克希德马丁公司以及Calspan公司。
