ABSTRACT
This section presents an update on drone aircraft as of October 2008. The first fully autonomous operation performed by the Experimental Validation Aircraft was held on June 30. It is noted that the successful demonstration constitutes a major step in the development of the multinational Neuron project. On the other hand, the Vader ground moving target indicator synthetic aperture radar is being developed by Northrop Grumman.
