Silly Boys… Aerospace Toys are Made By Girls :

6 01 2010

So what does a female aerospace engineer do at work… I get to play with these bad boys:

I meant the hover craft, unmanned aircraft and ground vehicles of course! (not the men themselves) ;-D

Unmanned Helicopter 😀 (Unwomanned? too)

Blended Wing Body w/retractable wings (I am not talking about myself) 😀

You are able to see that even unmanned aircraft can still be very large.

Above are some of the Robots that are used in warfare or to scope out safe areas.

I got to personally play around with the armed robot below…. really COOL.  It is fast and very agile. WATCH OUT!

The red truck is remotely driven and operated; there will probably be a dummy in the vehicle.

Some UAVs are launched off of a platform.

The UAV above has a rotating propulsion unit which enables it to vertically takeoff and land.

The UAV depicted above is the famous Predator!  Predator is known for its surveillance and recent video feed leaks in Afghanistan :-p

Many of the robots and UAVs are operated from small portable laptops and control stations all over the world.

Thanks for following me on a hard day of work. 😉

BOYS & GIRLS TOYS

All the toys are really so cool and dangerous . Thees are looking as you are going on a war. I really like the armed robot and remotely driven red truck with a gun.
