Military drones would be used for civilian purposes soon

Helicopter drone program by U.S. Marine Corps was a great success and therefore the mission period has been increased from six months to 33 months.  Aerospace major Kaman made K-MAX unmanned helicopters for the military.  Couple of these drones has survived for three years in the Afghanistan. The credit of reducing soldiers’ contact with enemy goes to these drones. 

The awesome piece of technology helped in the pulling around 900 damaged trucks off the road along with 4.5 million pounds of equipment. Theses choppers are proving to be helpful in military logistics. The massive success of this project has also triggered demand in the private sector. The drones are resting in the military warehouse since the war in Afghanistan was finished in 2014. 

Liechtenstein based Rotex Helicopter AG; a European firm along with Helicopter Express from America has approached the manufacturer for commercial use. The company expects more demand in the American markets. General Manager Terry Fogarty of the K-MAX Program spoke on the behalf of Kaman Aerosystems at the Paris Air Show. 

The manager informed that the company has been trying hard to open commercial manufacturing plant since last year.  At Le Bourget airfield Fogarty explained that how increased demand and inquiries forced them to build a production plant.  The company has already started collecting deposits for the development. On being asked about the application of such drones in the civilian space, the company officials said that copters would be efficient in forestry work, disaster management and in the firefighting.
