Feb. 4 (Bloomberg) -- The U.S. military plans to more than triple its inventory of high-altitude, armed and unarmed drones capable of 24-hour patrols by 2020.
The long-range aviation plan delivered to Congress Feb. 2 calls for 800 high-altitude drones, up from 220 currently. “Recent operational experience and combat commander demands” are driving this “significant growth,” according to the plan submitted.
