Boeing is offering a clean-sheet design that leverages the research and development that went into the UCLASS program, said Donald "BD" Gaddis, MQ-25 director at the company.
Some ongoing improvements to the carrier air wing could be useful for regional conflicts, too, including the F-35C stealthy aircraft and longer range ground-attack variants of a UCLASS. However, the case for a different mix of aircraft in the carrier wing is most vivid when considering possible conflict against a near-peer rival.
Richardson embraced the role of end-user or bottom-up innovation in explaining a recent decision to revise the requirements for the UCLASS program.
Caption: General Atomics was pitching a derivative of its Predator-C for the US Navy's UCLASS effort, which has now evolved into the MQ 25 requirement that seeks a tanker UAV.
UClass aims to make districts' existing resources easily accessible for instruction.
Q: You have said that the Navy's intent is to blend manned and unmanned systems at all levels of war fighting, for example, Triton/P-8, Fire Scout/H-60 and unmanned carrier launch airborne surveillance and strike (UCLASS) with manned carrier air wings.
(20) For the longer term, it may make sense for the Air Force to convert its MQ-X UAV program, now on hold, into a land-based version of the vehicle emerging from the Navy's UCAS-D/ UCLASS programs.
Will the company reveal whether it will enter its X-47 into the US Navy's much-anticipated unmanned carrier launched airborne surveillance and strike (UCLASS) competition?
"During the UCLASS program we looked at those kind of capabilities in great detail, and if the Navy were to choose that sort of a platform [Lockheed] is well positioned to provide the kind of technologies that are required to do that," Vinson said.
The X-47B is paving the way for the US Navy's Uclass (Unmanned Carrier-Launched Airborne Surveillance and Strike) programme, reportedly designated RAQ-25.
Examples of highly capable aircraft now being acquired by the Navy include F-35C carrier-based Joint Strike Fighters (JSFs), (109) F/A-18E/F Super Hornet strike fighters and EA-18G Growler electronic attack aircraft, (110) E-2D Hawkeye early warning and command and control aircraft, the P-8A Multi-mission Maritime Aircraft (MMA), the Navy carrier-based Unmanned Combat Air System (N-UCAS program) demonstrator program, and the follow-on Unmanned Carrier Launched Airborne Surveillance and Strike (UCLASS) system.
