CAMP PENDLETON CHAPTER CHAPTER - Apr 15, 2015

Presentation Focuses On Unmanned Aircraft System

Bill Walker of Northrop Grumman provided April luncheon attendees with a presentation on the MQ-4C Triton unmanned aircraft system. During the presentation, Walker discussed how the MQ-4C was designed and built to meet the Navy's maritime intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) mission requirements. He highlighted the robust signals intelligence and communications relay capabilities that the platform will provide. Walker discussed the value that High-Altitude, Long-Endurance (HALE) systems provide to warfighters. Because of their high altitude, they are clear of commercial traffic and weather. The altitude also allows better sensor coverage and reduced risk. Also during April, the chapter distributed three Science Teaching Tools grants. Winning schools were Carlsbad, High Tech High North County, Rancho Buena Vista and Fallbrook high schools.
