The K-MAX unmanned helicopter was a very popular weapon used by many American military members in Afghanistan around 2011. This was used to haul cargo from one spot to the next. It was used for years, a total that is impressive given that it was intended to be available for just a few months in a trial state.
Today the K-MAX, which was specifically used by the Marines, could be coming to the public market. This is because Kaman Aerospace, the company responsible for making the drone, is reopening production on K-MAX models.
The first edition will be a single-seat model that will be piloted by individual people. This is especially expected to be made available to fire departments in the western United States that need help with fighting massive fires. Various demos are expected to be held to showcase the immense power of the drone and to display just how efficient and useful it can be when taking care of fires.
