Experimental Drone Passes Tests Aboard USS Truman

Experimental Drone Passes Tests Aboard USS Truman 19 Dec 2012 An experimental drone that could change the future of naval aviation has survived its first round of testing aboard an aircraft carrier, Navy officials say. The X-47B Unmanned Combat Air System went through a series of mechanical and engineering tests designed to evaluate its compatibility with the Navy's aircraft carriers during a two-week stint aboard the nuclear powered USS Harry S. Truman. "I'm a believer that this is only the beginning," Don Blottenberger, program manager for the Navy's unmanned aircraft program, said in a statement.
