BAE Systems, University Partner Develop ‘Adaptable’ Hybrid UAV Concept

TYSONS CORNER, VA, Oct. 3, 2017 — BAE Systems has teamed with Cranfield University in the U.K. to develop a conceptual hybrid unmanned aerial vehicle that could shift between rotary-wing and fixed-wing modes and work with different launch and recovery settings, ExecutiveBiz reported Monday.
