A new class of drones that can fly autonomously over land and sea without human help could revolutionize our lives and even the future of warfare.
The technology is being developed by aerospace giant Boeing, which has been developing drones for years, including a prototype that was used by the U.S. Navy to take down a nuclear submarine.
Now, the U,S.
Army has partnered with Boeing to develop the XR-33, a lightweight, fully autonomous, air-to-air weapon that is expected to be ready in 2021, according to the Army.
It can fly at speeds of up to 300 mph (480 kph) and is able to carry up to six people, according the U-S.
Airlines and defense contractors are looking to the X-33 for both their own unmanned systems and the ability to fly unmanned systems autonomously.
The U.K.-based firm, AeroVironment, has also developed drones that it says can fly above buildings or other structures at speeds up to 150 mph (240 kph).
The U-K-based company’s X-38 is the world’s first fully autonomous drone.
Boeing and the U.-S.
military say the XRA33 is designed for the Air Force to use as a “light and low-cost platform to advance the development of a small, lightweight and highly capable air-launched system that is ready to deploy in the 2020s.”
The Air Force’s XRA-33 will be used by both the U .
S. and U.N. forces, as well as by the Army, which will deploy the weapon as part of its Advanced Tactical Airborne System (ATASC) program, the Air Combat Command said in a statement.
AeroVironments CEO John McLean told the AP that the company was already working on developing autonomous drones for the U-.
The Air Force is also developing a drone to deliver humanitarian aid.
“Aerosoft has already proven that it has the capability to build and deliver autonomous, fully-autonomous, self-driving, low-impact, low cost and high-performance aircraft that can operate in extreme conditions, where the ability of the aircraft to respond to changing conditions is critical,” McLean said in an interview.
“We believe this capability will make it possible for us to deliver assistance to the affected population as quickly as possible, and that will enable us to deploy to places that we would not otherwise be able to.
Our X-R33 is the perfect solution.”
In addition to being an air-controlled drone, the X RA33 also has the ability for the pilot to be remotely controlling the aircraft and to “select” targets, according its description.

In an interview with Business Insider, McLean explained that the X.RA33 has the potential to replace manned aircrafts in some situations because it is designed to operate in low-level weather, which makes it ideal for low-risk missions.
“When you’re in the air, it’s very important to have a low altitude capability,” Mclean said.
“When you fly low, you don’t have to worry about anything.
You’re safe, and you’re able to operate with a low payload.”
R33 also can be flown autonomously in “hot-air” conditions, according AeroVirionment’s description.
This means that it is capable of flying in the sky for hours at a time without the need for a pilot, Mclean added.
“With the low-altitude capability, you’re flying over the ocean, you can be in the sea, you have the ability,” McLeod said.
The XR33’s capabilities have been described by Boeing as being “inherently different” from what is possible for the manned aircraft that are currently in use, according a report from Defense One.
The company has been working on the XA-37, an autonomous aircraft that uses a combination of laser, radar and sensors to provide surveillance and attack capabilities.
The aircraft, developed in partnership with Raytheon, can fly up to 200 miles (320 kilometers) and can be launched from anywhere in the world.
The Air Combat Systems Command, which oversees the Air Resources Board, says that the air-based XRA 33 will have an effective range of at least 150 miles (240 kilometers) on the air and can fly in airspace that does not have any airspace restrictions, such as over the U
