FCAS and Remote Carriers - Launch from an A400M - Laboratory Tests

A full-size, fully-equipped fuselage of the A400M available in Bremen was used to integrate and perform final tests prior to ground and in flight ones on a real A400M.
The main aim of these tests was finding the required safe distance between the UAV and the aircraft ramp and observing if the path of the launched drone matches previously calculated simulations. With each repetition, a modified DT-25 target drone safely landed in a ball pit filled with foam chips.
