Air Force May Transfer General Atomics-Built Predator RPAs to Navy

TYSONS CORNER, VA, Jan. 24, 2018 — Some of the U.S. Air Force‘s General Atomics-built MQ-1 Predator remotely piloted aircraft may be transferred to the U.S. Navy as the air fleet transitions to the MQ-9 Reaper by the end of the year for additional capacity, ExecutiveBiz reported Tuesday.

The War Zone reported Monday foreign allies may also get some of the Predator units, which the Air Force will retire after more than 20 years in service, or the Navy may choose to modify the drones with new sensors or mission equipment.
