WEBSTER FIELD — Boeing kindly rendered a reconnaissance by this reporter to a sweltering southern-Maryland swamp — er, UAV demonstration area — worthwhile by offering this peak at their strategy for the US Air Force’s MQ-X contract. I expect to hear more tomorrow about Boeing’s plans for this MQ-9 replacement concept at the AUVSI convention. For now, we just have this picture.
For the visitors on this site familiar with British vulgarity (you know who you are), Boeing also had a treat for you, too. You may remember that the BellBoeing V-22 program at the 2007 Paris Air Show unveiled the Totally Organic Sensor System, delighting British-accented crowds with the apparently unintentinonal and unfortunate acronym. Well, Boeing has managed to find a completely different system to call a TOSS. See below.
