Lockheed Martin demonstrations of Fury Expeditionary UAS
Lockheed Martin’s advanced tactical Group 3 unmanned aerial system (UAS), Fury, is regularly flying longrange endurance test missions as the company prepares it for low-rate production.
In flight tests since May 2016, Fury has flown more than 200 hours and reliably demonstrated more than 12-hour endurance, while simultaneously operating 100 pounds of payloads, including electrooptical/infrared surveillance systems, voice communications relays, SATCOM links, and multiple signals intelligence payloads.
The ramp-up in flight tests and demon- strations has grown significantly. Fury has completed over 400 flight test hours, with significant increase in the second half of 2016.
“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,” said Kevin Westfall, Director of Unmanned Systems at Lockheed Martin.
