Another test of an aerial platform with artificial intelligence took place in the USA. This time the Research Laboratory has tested the XQ-58A Valkyrie drone.
Here's What We Know
The developer of the drone is Kratos Defence & Security Solutions. The manufacturer has agreed with Shield AI to integrate artificial intelligence and bring the XQ-58A Valkyrie to market.
The U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory issued a large press release that carries no meaning and is full of generic language. For example, that the tests tested components that reduce risks for large unmanned systems.
Earlier Kratos said that in case of production of at least 100 drones per year the cost of Valkyrie will be less than $2 million. At the same time, in conditions of small-scale production, one drone will cost $6.5 million.
This year, the company gave the XQ-58A Valkyrie to the US Marine Corps. The military service will use the drones with manned fifth-generation F-35B and F-35C Lightning II fighters as an electronic warfare platform.
