BOEING: Newest Release of Innovative Unmanned Aircraft
In the aerospace industry, unmanned aircrafts have created a name for themselves in recent years as they no longer put an operator into risk as standard aircrafts. Creating new heights for uncharted territory, the career of the unmanned aircraft is well on its way to a soaring future.
Boeing one of the industry’s most astounded manufacturer has released a new unmanned aircraft prototype that introduces a newer way to aircraft. The aircraft is known as the unmanned electric vertical- takeoff and landing (eVTOL) cargo air vehicle (CAV) prototype. Boeing has begun into their newest stage of aircraft development to create a new generation of models and possibly the future of aerospace.
"This flying cargo air vehicle represents another major step in our Boeing eVTOL strategy," said Boeing Chief Technology Officer Greg Hyslop. "We have an opportunity to really change air travel and transport, and we'll look back on this day as a major step in that journey."
The Unmanned aircraft have been intended to be able to vertical lift cargo with approximated weight of 500 pounds. The (CAV) prototype is focused on cargo and “logistic applications “for commercial use.
The Boeing team of engineers were able to build the newly composed CAV prototype in little than three months.
Boeing sub diary Boeing Horizon X makes all this possible along with the help of their addition resources Boeing Research and Technology.
This prototype specs have been measured to be:
15 feet long (4.57 meters)
18 feet wide (5.49 meters)
4 feet tall (1.22 meters)
weighs 747 pounds (339 kilograms).
The prototype also includes eight counter-rotating blades that help the prototype be able to shift vertically. Boeing's world renown name will continue to expand as their company begins to shift its focus on what is yet to come in the near future.
