The UAS has a blended-wing aircraft body design, which incorporates unique elements to enable growth for future payloads and additional mission capabilites.
The KillerBee also has both land or sea launch, recovery and ground control capabilities.
Raytheon Missiles System’s advance missiles and unmanned systems vice president Bob Francois said that the UAS was an integrated solution to the US Navy’s need for persistent intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance in the littoral environment.
