The U.S. military is experimenting with GPS-based targeting for the purpose of hunting enemy aircraft.
The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, or DARPA, is developing a weapon that uses GPS signals to target the GPS navigation system of drones.
The weapon is a system that can detect a drone’s location and then use GPS signals in real time to fire missiles.
The Pentagon is using a sensor called a GPS-derived targeting system, or GPS-T, that is being tested in a Lockheed Martin F-35 aircraft.
DARPA said in a press release that the system can detect and track a target up to 20 kilometers away, and fire an unguided missile that can hit the drone at a range of up to 1,000 meters.
The system is not currently deployed on the F-15 or F-22 fighters.
DARP said that the new system is intended for use in aircraft equipped with a GPS navigation suite, but it was unclear how the system would operate in an F-16 or F/A-18 fighter.
In the press release, DARPA touted the potential of the system, saying that it would be capable of destroying a weapon or “any other weapon that is equipped with GPS navigation.”
The F-21 stealth fighter, the F/ A-18, and the F22 stealth fighter are the most advanced fighters in the U.K. armed forces.
The F-27 is considered a “must have” for the Royal Navy and is one of the most expensive weapons in the Navy.
The F/Anaconda stealth fighter is the Navy’s new stealth fighter and has been under development since the early 1990s.
The aircraft has been given the designation F/ANAConda-1.
The Lockheed Martin fighter jet was first produced in 1977.
It was later upgraded to the F4F Lightning II aircraft in 1988 and was upgraded to F/F-5A/B/C in 1994.
The Lockheed Martin X-52 Skyhawk fighter is currently the Navy plane.
