Boeing will create a jet fighter companion drone for Australia’s airforce. The Boeing Airpower Teaming System will provide a disruptive advantage for allied forces’ manned/unmanned missions. Jet fighter drones will eventually provide force multiplier benefits for Air Force pilots. In 2020, the first prototype drone with fighter-like performance will be flying. It will be 38 feet long (11.7 meters) and will have a range of more than 2,000 nautical miles. It will use artificial intelligence to fly independently or in support of manned aircraft while maintaining safe distance between other aircraft.
