Fire-X. Northrop Grumman

Fort Worth, Texas-based Bell Helicopter and Northrop Grumman are teaming to develop Fire-X, a medium-range helicopter unmanned aerial system (UAS). Fire-X will incorporate unmanned architecture from the U.S. Navy’s MQ-8B Fire Scout with the Bell 407. First flight of Fire-X is projected before the end of 2010, with demonstrations for the U.S. Navy in 2011. (From June 2010 Rotorcraft Report)
