“K-MAX’s capabilities directly answer the Marine Corps’ requirement to augment ground and air logistics operations, supplement rotary-wing assets and keep warfighters supplied and out of harm’s way.”
Given that it’s military tech, not much is disclosed but what we know is that it could carry cargo weighing 4,000 lbs at 10,000 ft. of flight and 6,000 lbs at sea level. It’s also employing a primary rotor design that allows the emission of a tail rotor. As for the manufacturing contract, they’re to make two units of the unmanned choppers and three remote ground stations.
“K-MAX is the optimal choice for an affordable unmanned cargo delivery capability. With reduced operational and logistics costs, increased fuel savings and less manpower required compared to a ground vehicle convoy or manned helicopter, the K-MAX is the lowest-risk solution for the mission.”
