LONDON, United Kingdom. An RJ100 aircraft that was equipped with the combat aircraft nose system known as the fast jet radome underwent a successful flight test through QinetiQ’s Airborne Technology Demonstrator (ATD) in alliance with BAE Systems, Qinetiq announced in a statement.
The effort is part of a long-term partnering agreement with the UK Ministry of Defence (MOD).
"Using an RJ100 airframe, the addition of the radome is just the latest in a series of modifications to this platform," the statement reads. "Transformed into a flying laboratory and classroom, the ATD provides power and data backbones and multiple flexible workstations to enable research and development projects to be quickly and easily integrated."
