This is a proud day for Wind River knowing that our VxWorks real-time operating system is a key technology for this aircraft, developed as part of the Navy’s Unmanned Combat Air System Carrier Demonstration (UCAS-D) program. See the video here. In 2013, the X-47B made history by being the first tailless, unmanned aircraft to land on and take off from an aircraft carrier.
Congratulations to Northrop Grumman and the U.S. Navy.
For more information about the latest X-47B achievement and reference to Wind River as a member of the Joint Industry team delivering technology to the program, see the Northrop Grumman release. You can also learn more from the Navy’s press release.
