Skunk Works’ newest UAVs revealed

Last May, I pleaded in vain for Lockheed Martin’s Skunk Works to show me details of their offering for the STUAS/Tier II contract.

Turns out all I had to do was wait a few months to troll around their AFA exhibit.

The photos below show the appropriately named “STUAS” aircraft designed by Skunk Works. It instantly ranks with the Raytheon/Swift Killer Bee as one of the sexier designs.

    This info was posted at the annual AUVSI conference back in July. Same posters and nothing new about capability.

    That is one wicked UAS. Is that a Marine Corps K-bar knife on the side? Is this vehicle stealthy? What kind of weapons does it carry?
