Flying 'Aircraft Carriers': How the U.S. Military Could Soon Have the Ultimate Weapon

This is how it works...
by Task and Purpose

One can only guess what potential future applications DARPA has in mind for air-launched drone systems (an active seeker anti-air drone, perhaps?), but for now the Gremlin system will focus on providing extra intel on the cheap. The Gremlin will make its first flight sometime in 2019 and will most likely annoy Syrian air defenses shortly thereafter after .

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, often referred to as the mad science wing of the Pentagon, announced on May 9 that it plans on debuting its revolutionary Gremlin Unmanned Aerial System sometime in 2019. And much like the carrier classic military science fiction franchise StarCraft, defense contractor Dynetics designed the Gremlin to launch and recover from a flying mothership — in the case of the U.S. military, a Lockheed C-130 Hercules.
