Boeing Puts Little Bird ISR Drone to 25 Min Test; Joseph Song Comments

Boeing is developing an unmanned helicopter to support missions in resupply and ISR (intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance).

The company said it worked with Korean Air’s aerospace division to demonstrate the Unmanned Little Bird for South Korea’s army, flying the drone for 25 minutes at an aviation school.

“Boeing and KAL continue to build on a history of collaboration to offer our customers innovative solutions, grow new business, and expand Korea’s aerospace and defense industry capabilities,” said Joseph Song, vice president and managing director for Boeing’s defense, space and security business in South Korea.

ULB is a variant of the MD 500 helicopter, developed by McDonnell Douglas, and Korean Air produced the helicopters for South Korea under a license from McDonnell Douglas and Hughes Helicopters.
