BAE Systems and Malloy Aeronautics have demonstrated the capabilities of the T-600 heavy lift uncrewed air system (UAS) at a NATO exercise in Portugal.
The demonstrator aircraft released an inert Sting Ray training variant anti-submarine torpedo during a flight mission at sea for the first time.
The exercise, known as REPmus, involved 15 NATO partners, along with Ireland and Sweden, and provided a safe and controlled area to test concepts, requirements, new and advancing technologies in respect of Maritime Uncrewed Systems.
