      Boeing's MQ-25 is ready


      Boeing is bringing the future of unmanned aircraft carrier aviation to the U.S. Navy with its MQ-25. An unmanned aircraft system designed for the U.S. Navy mission, it will provide the needed robust refueling capability thereby extending the combat range of deployed Boeing F/A-18 Super Hornet, Boeing EA-18G Growler, and Lockheed Martin F-35C fighters.

      Our aircraft is ready for the mission, the flight deck and the U.S. Navy. Boeing has been delivering carrier aircraft to the Navy for more than 90 years – we know the flight deck. Our MQ-25 brings the right combination of refueling, autonomy, and seamless carrier deck integration to deliver a solution that meets the U.S. Navy’s goals: put a low-cost unmanned aerial refueling aircraft on the flight deck as soon as possible.

      Boeing’s MQ-25 is ready.

      Ready for the Mission


      Extending the carrier air wing reach

      • On Aug. 30, 2018, the U.S. Navy awarded Boeing an $805 million contract to build the MQ-25, the Navy’s first operational carrier-based unmanned aircraft.
      • MQ-25 is designed to provide the U.S. Navy with a much-needed refueling capability, allowing for better use of combat strike fighters by extending the range of deployed Boeing F/A-18 Super Hornet, Boeing EA-18G Growler, and Lockheed Martin F-35C aircraft.
      • Under the engineering and manufacturing development contract, Boeing will provide four aircraft.

        Ready for the Flight Deck


        Delivering unmatched carrier flight deck experience

        • Boeing has been delivering carrier aircraft to the U.S. Navy for more than 90 years. We know carrier operations and can provide seamless integration with existing systems.
        • Boeing’s carrier heritage stretches back to the 1930s Douglas TBD Devastator to today’s latest-generation F/A-18E/F Super Hornet.
        • We’ve applied all of that experience to our MQ-25 aircraft, bringing the best Boeing has to offer to the U.S. Navy once again.

        Ready for the Navy


        Accelerating aerial refueling capabilities

        • We are ready to execute to an aggressive schedule to deliver unmatched carrier flight deck experience.
        • We are preparing for flight testing with our MQ-25 EMD test asset that will fly in 2019.
        • This aircraft will help accelerate the MQ-25 EMD program, allowing for early learning and discovery to advance the development of major systems and software.
