Northrop Grumman X-47A

The Model 326 aircraft (or Pegasus X-47A) is an unmanned aerial vehicle built for Northrop Grumman. The objective of this program was to construct a demonstrator aircraft for Northrop, which would validate their commitment to the UCAV-N program and demonstrate several challenging mission parameters, including: low speed flying qualities, automatic carrier landing system capability, and simulated arrestment. An additional objective was to help Northrop demonstrate their capability to design and build a proof-of-concept aircraft in a short period of time at a low cost.
