XPONENTIAL 2017: Lockheed Martin FURY in Extensive Flight Test Regime

Expeditionary UAS Reliably Flies 12-Hour Sorties with 100lb Payload

The Lockheed Martin FURY Expeditionary UAS continues to fly long-range endurance test missions as the company gears up for low-rate initial production.

Since May 2016, FURY has flown over 400 flight test hours, reliably demonstrating endurance of 12 hours and more while simultaneously operating 100lbs of payloads, including EO/IR surveillance systems, voice communications relays, SATCOM links, and multiple signals intelligence payloads.

These flight tests have consistently proven that FURY is a true ‘anytime, anywhere’ tactical Group 3 aircraft. FURY can be deployed to execute strategic and tactical Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance missions with endurance and capability previously found only in Group 4 systems,” Kevin Westfall, Director of Unmanned Systems at Lockheed Martin, observed. “We continue to invest internally in FURY to deliver this proven critical capability at the best value for our customers.”
