It has no name, nothing is known about its performance or characteristics. Without any explanation to accompany it, this futuristic drone model can be found on the BAE Systems stand at the show World Defense Show which is held in Riyadh (Saudi Arabia) until today. With this concept, the arms manufacturer wishes to show its vision of military drones for the future. If there is no indication on the specifications of theaéronefaéronefits design and certain details already allow you to draw your robot portrait.
The device has a large family delta whose rear has been recut. What takes the place of the elevator is nested in this large wing. Seen from above, the whole thing looks like a diamonddiamond. The fuselagefuselage is also mixed with this wing, which almost gives the drone a flying wing architecture.
A weak radar signature
To reduce drag and increase efficiency, the device is also equipped with a tailplanetailplane V. With this design, we can deduce that the drone will have good aerodynamic performance allowing it to be both durable and capable of transporting a heavy payload. We also understand that it is powered by a reactor, which should allow it to evolve at speedsspeeds transonic or supersonic. The other advantage of this particular design is its stealth.
In addition to a profile mixing the wing to the fuselage, the neznez is angular and flattened, and the nozzlenozzle is streamlined. This assembly should make it possible to reduce the radar signature of the aircraft as much as possible. For the moment, this concept, which has no name, only exists on a drawing board, but the fact of showing it at an arms show suggests that BAE Systems intends to draw attention to this concept for the actually develop.
