BAE Systems and AVX Aircraft Company have submitted a proposal for the US Navy’s Medium Range Maritime Unmanned Aerial System (MRMUAS) programme.

According to the proposal, the new solution involves integration of AVX’s new aircraft configuration with BAE’s on-board common autonomous mission systems, payloads, mission control system and support capabilities.

The two companies claim the weapon system exceeds MRMUAS mission requirements at a low cost.

The MRMUAS is a sea and land-based, vertical take-off and landing unmanned aerial system that will serve as a multi-intelligence, reconfigurable platform for operation from all air-capable ships.
