DARPA Aircraft to Stay In-Flight for Five Years

(via Metafilter)

"The VULTURE Air Vehicle Program is an exploratory development program with the overall goal to develop and demonstrate the ability to deliver and maintain an airborne payload on station for an uninterrupted period exceeding 5 years using a heavier-than-air platform system … The government is not interested in approaches that use either radioactive energy sources or employs any form of buoyant flight for this application."

I wonder if Billy Dee Williams will be the mayor?
