• Boeing is developing a spy drone can remain airborne for 5 years at a time.
Boeing SolarEagle
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
SolarEagle
Role High Altitude, Long Endurance Unmanned aerial vehicle
National origin United States
Manufacturer Boeing
Status In development
The Boeing SolarEagle (Vulture II) is a High Altitude, Long Endurance (HALE) unmanned aerial vehicle solar-electric spy plane developed by Boeing Phantom Works.[1]
It will remain airborne for five years at a time without needing to land. It has a wingspan of 120m, and will begin testing in 2014.[2] It has 20 motors of the same type as the Qinetiq Zephyr designed by Newcastle University. DARPA is funding $90 million for the project with Boeing paying the rest.[3]

You can't use solar to power submarines, tanks or Humvees.

Solar power will always be a libtard's pipe dream.


If it is high altitude, the Drone is subject to freezing temperatures,
UV radiation, and can't maneuver worth a shit because of having
such a high stall speed.

Might as well use a unmanned balloon -- they can go up to 170,000 ft,
hover for more than 55 days with no radar cross-section detectable
by the enemy.

Solar works quite well. Unfortunately you have to build it yourself. About the only commercial product is made in China, a hot water heater vacuum insulated and selective coating.

Photovoltaics have their place as well. When the grid goes down you would like to have some.

Yeah, 5 years is bullshit. Maybe a few months.
The limitations in energy storage alone would make this a impossibility with current technologies.
Perhaps, the drone will utilize air currents to try and gain altitude. But once again, this is a hit or miss thing.
We cannot "see" the wind. Even with "modern technology" we cannot see it. We still launch balloons to check direction and speed.

This is one of those "flying car" type articles explaining what COULD happen in the future with perfect conditions.

Re: • Boeing is developing a spy drone can remain airborne for 5 years at a time.
Been watching these drones and I started thinking SKY NET became self aware on........ Chilling ? We are very close to having drones by the tens of thousands at any given time at any location. "Self aware" ? some punk sipping a tepid starbucks super double latte with an orange twist is lining you up and ......POOF ! SPLAT.....
Listen up, these drones are coming. All countries are working on this. How many drones can China crank out in 12 months ? How many drone pilots could China produce in 12 months ? They could start them young and select the best drone pilots from millions. The drones are a huge wild card coupled with NSA satelites that know what you had for dinner last week. GPS nat's ass mapping and target access. Sky NET is here.

Before I had a cell phone, say 1993 or so...

I watched the Goodyear Blimp try and land at the Memphis International Airport. At NIGHT, AS A STORM FRONT WAS ROLLING IN.

The damned thing (I kid you not) Flipped over like a football at kickoff. The front actually blew it away from the approaching storm and I believe they headed for Jackson, TN and landed there?
