BAE’s Demon UAV flies

Manoeuvring without the aid of control surfaces has been demonstrated by an unmanned air vehicle designed by a British team of industry and academic specialists.

The Demon UAV (pictured below), an adapted BAE Systems Eclipse, first flew on 17 September with its flight control surfaces deactivated during a portion of the flight to test a new aerodynamic circulation control system.
