“Lockheed Martin has been conducting long-range flight tests of the Fury Unmanned Aerial System ahead of the platform’s low-rate production later this year. Fully funded and tested with the company’s own dollar, the Fury boasts an endurance of more than 12 hours and a 100-pound payload of surveillance sensors and communications systems. The firm is targeting both domestic and international orders, touting the platform for special operations missions as well as a possible replacement system for the US Army’s Shadow UAS. So far, only an unknown Middle East buyer has ordered the system, with orders for six units as well as a potential follow-up order of a further six.”
Lockheed Martin is an American global aerospace, defense, security and advanced technologies company with worldwide interests. It was formed by the merger of Lockheed Corporation with Martin Marietta in March 1995.
