Textron's UTV is an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) designed and built by Textron. It's intended for the United States military and is not intended to be used in civilian applications.
The UAV was originally developed by Textron for the United States Air Force (USAF). It is designed for aerial refueling and aerial surveillance, with an emphasis on long-range mapping. Because the UAV can move at supersonic speeds, it can fly long distances at a time.
The Textron UTV is a multi-mission vehicle that has a two-man cockpit and an autonomous flight control system. The vehicle is controlled by an operator on the ground who uses a laptop computer to program the flight path. The vehicle then flies the planned path over pre-determined routes. When an operator on the ground gives the desired commands, the UAV begins its flight and follows the programmed path. As it continues, the vehicle will record data and transmit that information to the operator on the ground.
The Textron UTV uses a GPS technology to determine its course. It uses a digital map of the area where it will be flying. The computer determines the exact location of the pilot so that it can send the commands to the UAV. Once the computer has determined the pilot's position, the computer sends a signal to the UAV, which then follows the programmed route in an automated manner. The aircraft will automatically detect obstacles and avoid them so that it remains on a smooth flight path.
Another benefit of the Textron UTV is the fact that it is able to stay airborne for a longer period of time. This means that the aircraft is not at risk of getting damaged or destroyed during a rescue operation. In other words, if there is an emergency and the crew needs to rescue a downed airplane, the UAV is less likely to get shot down. The vehicle also takes less fuel to complete a mission, which saves the military money. The aircraft can operate on a variety of different types of terrain, including sand and rocky terrain, and is able to travel at a low altitude.
Because the Textron UTV uses radio waves to communicate with the ground, it doesn't require satellites to be in orbit. Instead, it's controlled by an operator who can be located anywhere. on the globe, including at the pilot's location. However, the operators must be located somewhere where radio signals are available, such as the airfield.
