Drones Are Taking Over

Last November 15 was a day to remember for General Atomics’ engineers. That day marked the first time a Mojave Remotely Piloted Air System (RPAS) took off and landed on the HMS Prince of Wales – the first trial of its kind done on the US East Coast.

The Mojave was first unveiled back in December 9, 2021, and is expected to fulfill reconnaissance, CAS, and armed overwatch roles for military ships and carriers.

It also provides options for forward-basing operations without needing paved runways or infrastructure. This means that it can take off and land on several remote semi-improved surfaces under pilot control through a traditional ground control station, or a scalable command and control laptop solution.

Hopefully, this drone can be developed even further to make it as cost-effective and reliable as possible.
