PATUXENT RIVER, Md. --- The unmanned X-47B conducts its first night flight April 10 over Naval Air Station Patuxent River, Md. Night flights are the next incremental step in developing the operations concept for more routine UAS flight activity.

The Navy will continue to execute X-47B test events to mature standard operating procedures for cooperative use of the airspace with manned aircraft.
