Neuron Drone Soars at 609MPH: France Edges Closer to Autonomous Fighter Jet

The French Air Force conducted initial sea trial of a demonstrator of the Neuron combat drone on July 6 according to a spokesperson for France’s defense procurement agency.

The demonstrator for the unmanned combat aerial vehicle flew out at sea for “about an hour” at some 1,000 feet, flying both with and without Rafale fighter jets. The flight test was a critical hurdle before the next-generation stealth drone reaches the production phase and is ultimately incorporated into the fleet.
