Northrop-Grumann RQ-4A Global Hawk
The RQ-4A Global Hawk is a
high-altitude, long-endurance unmanned aerial reconnaissance
system designed to provide military field commanders with high
resolution, near-real-time imagery of large geographic areas.
Advanced technology sensors, a range greater than half-way around
the world, and the ability to remain in flight for long periods of
time, enables the Global Hawk to provide the war fighter with the
essential intelligence needed to achieve information dominance
throughout the ever-changing battle-space.
The aircraft's 13,500 nautical mile range and 36 hours
of endurance, combined with satellite and line-of-sight
communication links to the ground segment, permit worldwide
operation of the system. High-resolution sensors, which can look
through adverse weather (day or night), from an altitude of 65,000
feet, can conduct surveillance over an area the size of Illinois
in just 24 hours.
The superior performance of the Global Hawk system will
significantly enhance the U.S. military's ability to prevail in
all types of operations, from sensitive peacekeeping missions to
full-scale combat. The program is managed by the U.S. Air Force's
Aeronautical Systems Center at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base,
