Unmanned Aircraft Team Takes On Firefighting Mission
The Lockheed Martin and Kaman unmanned K-MAX helicopter successfully lifted and dropped more than 24,000 pounds of water to extinguish a fire in a demonstration on Nov. 6. During the demonstration, the Indago quad rotor identified hot spots and provided data to an operator who directed unmanned K-MAX to conduct water drops. The demonstration signifies how an unmanned team can aid in traditionally manned operations.
