MALIBU – The U.S. Navy proposes to station a drone operations base at an airfield 15 miles west of Malibu, it was reported Saturday.

Navy Base Ventura County, Point Mugu will get about 700 jobs when four of the planes are stationed at the Navy airfield midway between Malibu and Ventura. An environmental impact statement for the project was posted Friday, and first reported in the Ventura County Star.

Four unmanned, unarmed drones, called Tritons Unmanned Weapons Systems, would be stationed at Point Mugu, and other drones from Navy bases around the world would also land and takeoff at the Southern California base.

The planes are 48 feet long, but have 138-foot wingspans. They were unveiled at Palmdale last summer, and represent the military’s next generation of remote control intelligence gear.
