In November we posted a video of the new unmanned cargo helicopter, K-MAX, built by Kaman and Lockheed, that the Marines deployed for six months of testing in Afghanistan. A couple months and cargo hauls later, things seem to be proceeding smoothly. Lockheed recently posted this updated glamour video featuring stats and footage of their “unmanned aerial truck” at work.
