    How do you think this tech can influence our everyday air travel?

  2. PRACTICAL BUSHCRAFT & SURVIVAL on August 1, 2021 at 9:21 pm

    is that a screen saver in the back ground at 00:15 if so where did you get it from . and great info …

  3. BOMBAY INSTITUTE on August 1, 2021 at 9:22 pm

    CAN PASSENGERS ARE ENJOYING THIS TECHNOLOGIES … TOUR AND TRAVELLING BE ESAY …

  4. Victor's Voice on August 1, 2021 at 9:23 pm

    Australia needs this type of technology. With a small airforce, this drone can increase our numbers of aircraft.
    It’s price, adaptability to other uses, such as air-sea rescue, bushfire surveillance, makes it ideal for Australia.

    Australia just had it’s first flight today

    Skynet has its wings

  7. Cinnamon-Skateboarding on August 1, 2021 at 9:24 pm

    Ngl that drone looks really cool.

  8. JohnPhil LEE on August 1, 2021 at 9:27 pm

    Loyal wingman will destroy CCP`s PLA Carrier fleets on Pacific. Hooray Aussies~~

  9. Charles Quin on August 1, 2021 at 9:28 pm

    Is this Belkan technology???

  10. Mayur borah on August 1, 2021 at 9:28 pm

    Aero India shows it as wingman of HAL

  11. thisguynamedbrian on August 1, 2021 at 9:30 pm

    Am I the only one uncomfortable how casual this video is. We’re not talking about a new phone we’re talking about drones with the right to kill. What I see this technology bringing is increased indifference in the deaths of innocent people in drone strikes

  12. Tomatenbomber on August 1, 2021 at 9:31 pm

    can someone please explain to me what makes this drone special? all i hear from this video is AI and "The largest single piece resin ever produced by boeing" which is as much as a nonstatement as it is irrelevant (at least to me since nowhere was it explained why this is good, he just talks in an excited voice, which leads me to believe that it is good)

  13. Sboom2017 on August 1, 2021 at 9:32 pm

    Swarm from bo2

  14. 40rdmag on August 1, 2021 at 9:33 pm

    Drones are trash

  15. Hiden Biden on August 1, 2021 at 9:34 pm

    My god, can you imagine how much the Chinese are going to pay biden for these?

  16. andono kusuma jati on August 1, 2021 at 9:37 pm

    Mihaly having a nightmare because of this

  17. random guy in the frontier on August 1, 2021 at 9:39 pm

    So this thing can have a TLS and pulse lasers

  18. Santhosh Kumar on August 1, 2021 at 9:42 pm

    why call it a "wingman", simply call it a loyal drone

  19. Porchen Hund on August 1, 2021 at 9:43 pm

    Nice looking drone.

  20. Ross Zografov on August 1, 2021 at 9:45 pm

    Guess what? New microwave and other, longer range disabling, is beginning to make these unmanned drones useless, against militaries with these new mainly defensive technologies. Drones will be a waste of time and waste of a lot of money.

  21. How Money Works on August 1, 2021 at 9:46 pm

    My guess is that each unit in the fleet will have its own nose for a different purpose. So, one will have extra radars, one will carry extra payload etc.

  22. Paul Radford on August 1, 2021 at 9:48 pm

    Designed and built in Australia 🇦🇺👍🇺🇸

  23. Great people of HIMACHAL on August 1, 2021 at 9:49 pm

    Waiting for
    Genesis🥺🥺😔😔

  24. William Knowles on August 1, 2021 at 9:52 pm

    20 dollars says they put a missile killing laser on it

  25. Grant Spork on August 1, 2021 at 9:53 pm

    Good to see Australian innovation building cutting edge aeronautics!

  26. pradman81 on August 1, 2021 at 9:54 pm

    I bet these are made to look like the drones in the opening of Terminator 2 just in order to scare us.

  27. SpicyHam on August 1, 2021 at 9:55 pm

    easy goin there.. rather generally also going

  28. Cornholio777 on August 1, 2021 at 9:55 pm

    AI = Skynet

  29. David Morris on August 1, 2021 at 9:57 pm

    Imagine hundreds of them in attack mode.

  30. pangrac1 on August 1, 2021 at 9:58 pm

    Lol boatbuliders are making even bigger single resin infusion pieces for years. 😜😂

  31. Eric Newton on August 1, 2021 at 9:58 pm

    As a force multiplying asset..I would like to see some of these vehicles have the ability to give exact locations of fixed enemy positions for artillery and long range rocket target acquisitions. Giving troops on the ground another advantage..

    อีก 10 เดือนจีนก๊อปเสร็จ หึหึ

  33. Agnite on August 1, 2021 at 9:59 pm

    Everybody gangsta until Latin Music start’s playing in the background while this is Dogfighting

  34. François Chiarelli on August 1, 2021 at 10:01 pm

    OK but what about Taranis, nEUROn, X-45, X-47, etc… A bit of context would be appreciated since first UCAV prototypes flew 20 years ago in Europe ans the US… This video makes it look like some unique achievement, which is not the case.

  35. Bruno Wiebelt on August 1, 2021 at 10:01 pm

    why do they develop such innovative technic in Australia, not traditionaly under top secret in the US????

  36. Qwi on August 1, 2021 at 10:02 pm

    Not suitable for Air travel. No pilot accountable for passenger lives. Air ticket should be cheaper like $60 since there is high risk and stakes are high traveling in a drone.

  37. Machiwi91 1205 on August 1, 2021 at 10:03 pm

    Getting some Northrop yf-23 vibes

  38. Ivan on August 1, 2021 at 10:04 pm

    How long will it take for the Chinese to steal the technology and reverse engineer it?

  39. Random Pheidole minor on August 1, 2021 at 10:04 pm

    It seems like the X-32 has lost quite some weight in the past few years

  40. .m. on August 1, 2021 at 10:06 pm

    i think unequivocally, all semi-trucks, ships, passenger planes, fighter jets, and military vehicles will be autonomous. it’ll start with testing a few AI drones for small missions. seeing the success and accuracy that AI can provide, governments will start investing and implementing more into AI. it will transition to fighter jets, tanks, carriers, and the overall military network and strategic planning. as things continue to go well, more and more power is given to AI, and human decision-making is removed from the process. at that point, our job is oversee and set objectives for the AI, and it will figure out the best way to accomplish that by co-ordinating all the vehicles at its disposal. as more and more power is given to it to further maintain the country’s competitive edge, it will eventually get to a point where it can make its own decisions. at that point it will be difficult to determine what will happen – either it may work with us, or go against us.

    Indian HAL wingmen is also Ander development .love from India ❤️

  42. Abhishek Pratap Singh on August 1, 2021 at 10:08 pm

    Two videos with 80% same script.

  43. Americanknow on August 1, 2021 at 10:09 pm

    It looks like Chinese drone’s copy.

  44. Jeff Lei on August 1, 2021 at 10:12 pm

    """"loyal""" wingman"?

    *is cruising along*

    Drone
    <<I’ve found my reason to fight>>

    *missile alarms*

  45. Ur Mum on August 1, 2021 at 10:13 pm

    Stick with trigger and you’ll be fine

  46. Jay G on August 1, 2021 at 10:14 pm

    Feminists will be angry with the name of — Wing’MAN’…😂🤣

  47. Emir Latinović on August 1, 2021 at 10:15 pm

    Instead of making the enemy fighter jet aviators frustrated, they should have invented the ejection seats for civilian airlines and finally save some lives.

  48. Tubes & Toks on August 1, 2021 at 10:16 pm

    Hmmm….So Boeing is the only Company that designed and built this thing. It was actually a collaboration involving many Australian companies, Australian Defense Department and Boeing.

  49. Billy Camilleri on August 1, 2021 at 10:16 pm

    What about a submarine what a joke

  50. The Noodle Channel on August 1, 2021 at 10:17 pm

    Feb 2021 – I’ve see this bad boy fly in tests …its cutting edge , with Australian know how given to Boeing….Better then your standard UAV
