Kratos Defense & Security Solutions’ XQ-58A Valkyrie completed its latest successful test/demonstration flight on 11 June.

According to the company, during the 71 minute flight the vehicle successfully completed its test objectives.

Valkyrie is a multi-mission, runway-independent UAS capable of long-range flights at high-subsonic speeds for a variety of applications.

The XQ-58A demonstrator is a low-cost UAS developed in partnership with the US Air Force Research Laboratory under the Low Cost Attritable Strike Demonstrator programme. The joint effort is part of work which aims to break the escalating cost trajectory of tactically relevant aircraft.
