    The Phantom Ray X-45C is a top-secret unmanned combat air vehicle (UCAV) that comes from Boeing’s Phantom Works. Known internally as Project Reblue at Boeing, private design work began in mid-2008, although the program’s existence wasn’t revealed until a year later. The Phantom Ray was unveiled in May 2010 in St. Louis, with the craft having an 11m-long fuselage and 15m wingspan. Although it’s the size of a fighter aircraft, the stealthy craft is unmanned and the design isn’t aimed at any particular competition or requirement. The Phantom Ray demonstrator is currently undergoing testing in the areas of surveillance, ground attack and autonomous aerial refuelling. The craft is based on the X-45C prototype that Boeing developed for the American military Joint-Unmanned Combat Air System (J-UCAS) program. Phantom Ray undertook its maiden flight on 27 April 2011 from Edwards Air Force Base, and was powered by a General Electric F404-GE-102D engine to a top speed of Mach 0.85.
