BAE unveils the Strix, a fascinating, tail-sitting X-wing VTOL UAV


BAE Methods, Australia, has unveiled an interesting new autonomous, hybrid, VTOL UAV for navy use. The STRIX, developed in Australia, folds to suit inside a transport container, and is able to carrying 160 kg (353 lb) of payload over 800 km (500 miles). The STRIX was unveiled at Australia’s current Avalon Air Present, in entrance of air drive chiefs from around the globe – with the notable exceptions, based on ABC Information, of Russian and Chinese language delegates, who had been excluded from the convention.

BAE Methods has developed the plane together with Perth-based Innovaero. It describes the Strix as a “hybrid, tandem-wing, multi-domain and multi-role UAS,” able to performing missions together with air-to-ground strike, persistent intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance, or probably serving as a “loyal wingman” – type drive multiplier to accompany navy helicopters.
