The proposed Bell 280 Valor isn’t autonomous, but I’ll be damned if this doesn’t look like something right out of The Terminator. The Valor was selected by the US Army for further development as part of the Future Vertical Lift (FVL) program. Bell is also working on the Bell 247 Vigilant, a smaller autonomous version “designed to combine unparalleled capability with unprecedented flexibility to execute a wide array of mission sets, including electronic warfare, ISR (Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance), escort, C4 (Command, Control, Communications, and Computers), persistent fire missions and tactical distribution.” The Vigilant could be coming to a terrorist near you by 2023. The Valor is expected to take its maiden flight in 2017.
